The creation process of Duke Nukem 3D VR is still in an early stage, the authors themselves only talk about it “side project”. For example, in a shooter, aiming is done through the movements of the player’s head and not through the usual controls.

Duke Nukem 3D VR is based on the Raze Engine, a modified version of the build engine developed specifically for 3D realms by programmer Ken Silverman in the 1990s.

Currently, to access the VR version of the Duke Nukem 3D shooter, you must subscribe to the creative works distribution site Patreon. The creators of the modification claim that their final version will be distributed for free.
