Duke Nukem 3D: Megaton Edition has a brand new beta version out that has some pretty nice improvements, and for Linux gamers they are great.
QuoteWe switched from SDL1 to SDL2, this should improve compatibility with modern OS and improve general stability of the game. Source
We've added gamepad support. You can bind button in Key Bindings menu or reset bindings to get default gamepad bindings.
Also we have fixed Overlay issues on OSX/Linux.
Those are some pretty good improvements, and if you remember how old this game is it's great to see such official support still going on.
You need to opt-into the beta from within Steam to access it.
Let us know how it is! Be sure to check it out on Steam
and kick some alien ass.
