Out of the Blue

Hail to the king, baby! The version of our logo now adorning our desktop view is a tribute to Duke Nukem. The side-scrolling first game in the series was released by Apogee/3D Realms 31 years ago yesterday, on July 1, 1991. Duke went on to bring his trademark charm into the world of first-person shooters soon enough. But today we celebrate the origins of the series as a platformer. I guess jumping for joy is the appropriate button to press. Hats off, as always, to Walter "2" Costinak for the original logo, as well as to Steve for renovating it for us. Groovy.

Groovy Round-up
Thanks Ant and Neutronbeam.
