Duke Nukem Wiki

Imagination World[]

Imagination World is a total conversion mod for Duke Nukem 3D (compatible with version 1.3d of Duke Nukem 3D, as well as Duke Nukem 3D: Atomic Edition through the use of EDuke32). It was created by James Stanfield (a.k.a. Jblade) of JS Games and contains new levels, new graphics, new sprites for the player (James Stanfield) and enemies, new weapons, new sound effects, new music, new voice-overs, new bosses, and new ending sequences. Survival, a total conversion by JS Games, was made as a sequel to Imagination World, though the only version available was a demo released on June 19th, 2009. Imagination World 2, a standalone EDuke32-based total conversion sequel by JS Games, was released on October 14th, 2010.

How to play the mod with the EDuke32 source port:

To play the single player levels, left-click and drag the file titled "Iwgame.con" into EDuke32, then set the custom game content directory settings to the "iwfull" option.

To play the multiplayer levels, left-click and drag the file titled "Mgame.con" into EDuke32, then set the custom game content directory settings to the "iwfull" option.
