You don't need me telling you 2021's been a weird year, but chances are, someone recreating Matt Hancock's office within Duke Nukem 3D's engine wasn't quite on the bingo card. As spotted by TheGamer and NME though, that's exactly what someone's done.
For those living outside the UK, you may not be aware that nearly two weeks ago, UK Health Secretary Matt Hancock resigned, caught on camera having an affair with his aide. While Hancock was unsurprisingly mocked once that story broke, Twitter user Dan Douglas has gone a step further.
Matt Hancock's Office Gets Recreated Within Duke Nukem 3D
Initially using Duke Nukem 3D's "Build Engine", Douglas confirms he'd previously made levels for fun as a teenager, though he later switched to Mapster32 for custom textures. Initially inspired by the Daily Mail publishing Hancock's office floorplan, Douglas is now going "all-in", expanding to larger segments of London, adding a Sainsburys, Big Ben and zipwire Boris Johnson too.
It's not the first time we've seen PC modding used for political commentary, and it almost certainly won't be the last. Elsewhere, Steam's got Duke Nukem 3D: 20th Anniversary World Tour at 90%, so if you fancied finally looking into the series, now's a pretty good time to dip.
