George Broussard Not Involved With 3D Realms’ Earth No More

Posted by patrickklepek (3469 posts) -
Earth No More has a War of the Worlds vibe, with a mysterious outbreak infecting the environment.

3D Realms co-founder George Broussard is not involved with the upcoming Earth No More, 3D Realms’ other co-founder, Scott Miller, told me yesterday.

The Duke Nukem developer starting to tease a revival of Earth No More on Gambitious, a Kickstarter-like crowdfunding site that allows contributors to get equity of a project. Earth No More was once a collaboration between Miller’s Radar Group, 3D Realms, and Recoil Games several years ago, but it was never finished.

Radar Group was Miller’s cross-media company, which was also working on a game called Incarnate, where history’s “most evil people” were suddenly coming back to life in modern Chicago.

Earth No More, previously announced as an ecological first-person-shooter, is apparently going to seek funding on Gambitious in the near future, and is branded as a 3D Realms project. But Miller said Broussard isn’t part of it.

“George is not involved,” said Miller in an email.

Miller was unwilling to divulge any other details about Earth No More and it’s funding plans, though. Another studio is involved with developing the game, and it seems unlikely that's still Recoil Games.

“Wheels are turning behind-the-scenes, but for now there's not much to say,” he said.

It’s unclear if Broussard is simply not involved with Earth No More, or whether he’s left 3D Realms entirely. Miller did not respond to my requests for clarification, and Broussard has not responded to my request for comment.

Is Broussard still with 3D Relms? I thought the DN Forever was the end of him there.

Probably for the best; I mean the guy can't even spell his own name correctly...

Oh so this game will actually come out at some point. Great!

He ain't involved no more?

And there was much rejoicing.

Watch out, he might leave an angry voicemail!

Insert "hopefully" after the name, remove "Earth," and you've got my feelings on this subject.

This game is starting to sound better and better!

And so, I continue to wonder what the hell George Broussard even does anymore aside from play poker and break studio layoffs/closures on Twitter.

Called it

I imagine Mr. Broussard is very busy with the new World of Warcraft expansion, Mists of Pandaria. He has been known for being addicted to WoW during development of DNF.

3D Realms still exist ? I thought they went down with DNF.

The real question here is: "Is George Broussard still among us? Hasn't he already crossed the ultraverse and is now on a different reality?"

I still wouldn't give money to this project.

the company went bankrupt but as a group of people there was a core that stayed together. its the same group of people that helped gearbox out on dnf

DNF may be one of the industry's biggest jokes, but I don't think it truly discounts the company. In the modern times however they have no evidence that they can pull it off. Of course it's hard to find evidence either way. I hope they create a prototype to show the public first because no one will take them up on their word alone.

Hey Tricky, can you ask Scott Miller if he sold his beanie baby collection? My dad actually bought some off him and also sold some to him! Fucked up eh! Still using my Duke 3D mousepad he gave me. Still can't believe that guy was into collecting Beanie Babies

Really? This is the first I've ever heard about the game.

I thought it was well known that Broussard is totally out of 3d Realms and it's essentially a company composed of a webmaster. Are the "wheels turning behind the scenes" that of a hamster wheel?
