Duke Nukem Wiki

Cycloid Emperor in FM4X

FM4X is a four-part mod by Fernando Márquez that was created for Duke Nukem 3D: Atomic Edition. Released over the course of 16 years from 2004-2020, each of the four installments replaces one of the episodes from the base game.

The mod is particularly notable for its stylistic consistency with original Duke Nukem 3D maps by developers Allen Blum and Richard "Levelord" Gray. Nearly every level of FM4X incorporates recognizable design elements from levels in the base game, without directly lifting any content. Several maps even contain recreated scenes from pre-release screenshots from prototypes that were scrapped before the commercial release of Duke Nukem 3D.
