And travelled back to tell everyone about it.
In April 1997 a seemingly innocent task began to create a new Duke Nukem game called Duke Nukem Forever - or Duke Nukem Never, or Duke Nukem Never-ever - or Duke Nukem If Ever - Whenever. In 1998 a trailer was released:
It ran for 3 and a half-minutes.
In 2001 another trailer was released:
It ran for just 1 and a half minutes.
In December 2007, another trailer was released:
It ran for just one minute.
In 2009 another trailer was released, and ran for 45 seconds, in March 2014 another trailer was released - and in 2018 the last trailer was released for the game, clocking in at just 38 seconds. Then the game was actually released - it was released for the WindowsForever PC platform, and required Direct-X 21, 5TB of HDD space for installation and 2.7TB of ram. The massive game was hailed as one of the most advanced PC games ever released - despite only containing three levels and a small bonus level.
3D Realms CEO Scott Miller then promptly made good on his 2006 promise "We've already mapped out a sequel for Prey, from a high-level story standpoint, and of course as soon as Duke is done we'll begin a new one." and so the very day after Duke Forever was released announced that "We've already began work on the sequel - in fact we began work on it in 2012 hoping to release it within 12 months of Forever, however we can't give a release date at this time."
Duke Nukem Forever 2 was then produced, and successfully released in 2152 after being in development for 4 generations of the Miller family. It was also released for the WindowsForever platform, however no one could install the "public domain" software on their new systems, and so 3D Realms filed for bankruptcy in 2154 after heavily marketing their new game for two solid years.
Despite this somewhat major setback, DNF3 was announced in 2158, and would go on to be one of the top-selling games of its time upon its release in 2432, selling over four dozen copies internationally. The only other computer game released that year was "pong forever", a game aimed to "introduce gaming to a new generation", its developers stating there was strong historical evidence that in the 1990's-2040's computer games were actually quite popular; citing evidence of commercially successful "arcade game" businesses. Pong Forever was the last known computer game ever released. It sold over twenty copies, but failed to realize the success of Duke Nukem Forever 3.

I haven't got a clue on what the ---- you're on about.
I think I detected a trace of humor in the original post.
Weirdest post of the year.
PS: Not surprised.
