June 21st, 2000 by Crusader

Ken Silverman, once of3D Realms, has released the sourcecode to his BUILD engine,which was utilized in titles such as 3D Realm’sDuke Nukem 3D andShadow Warrior, as well asMonolith’sBlood. When requests for a BUILD sourcerelease were made in the past, Ken had stated it would be delayed until hecompleted schooling, hence the release after the more advanced Quake 1 enginewas GPL’ed. The current source is meant for compilation under DOS, althoughit opens the door to Linux ports of the above commercial titles andnew open-source projects utilizing the engine. Thanks to Martin Cracauer and Christian Sigl for the news.
