Right now, five Duke Nukem games are nicely discounted on GOG.com this week for what we are hoping is a temporary #delisting from the #game #catalogue, the retailer announced today.

This sale covers Duke Nukem (1991) and Duke Nukem 2 (1993), sold together in a package; Duke Nukem 3D Atomic Edition (1996), the pinball spinoff Balls of Steel (1997); and then Duke Nukem: Manhattan Project (2002). Normally they cost $5.99 each but are on sale for $1.49 or 75 percent off. If you buy them all together, this is only $2.36, a discount of 90 percent. With some Linux support in the mix, the remaining titles should work nicely in Wine.

GOG.com is running the sale until 5:59 a.m. ET on Thursday, Dec. 31, where all five games will disappear from the storefront. This is due to the publisher, 3D Realms, who no longer own the rights to any of the Duke Nukem games. The settlement this past August, the intellectual property lawsuit between 3D Realms, Interceptor Entertainment and Gearbox Software over Interceptor’s Duke Nukem: Mass Destruction, Gearbox claimed the full rights to the Duke Nukem brand.

As for the Duke Nukem games themselves, GOG.com are in talks with the new rightsholders to bring these titles as soon as possible. And it is also noted in the blog post on GOG.com that anybody who owns any of the games in their library will not see the titles disappear.

These GOG.com versions of Duke Nukem, Duke Nukem 2 and Duke Nukem 3D Atomic Edition are available on Linux, Mac and Windows PC. While Duke Nukem: Manhattan Project only supports Mac and Windows, and Balls of Steel is only available for Windows.
