Zeebo port of Duke Nukem 3D

According to the developers of the Ripp3D game engine,[1] their game engine was licensed to MachineWorks Northwest to port Duke Nukem 3D to the Zeebo video game console. Plans for a Zeebo port of Duke Nukem 3D were also disclosed by Zeebo Inc. at the Game Developers Conference (GDC) in 2009, as was reported by several media outlets.[2][3][4] However, the Zeebo's well-documented catalog contains no records of the game,[5][6][7][8] suggesting it was never actually published.

In 2020, Seth Robinson, one of the project leads at MachineWorks Northwest, confirmed having worked on a Duke Nukem title for the Zeebo, but he could not recall the game or find it in his personal collection, despite initially misidentifying Duke Nukem Battlefields as the Zeebo title.[9]
