Game dev 3D Realms is currently looking for gamers to playtest an "unannounced BUILD Engine title," and hopes to select at least 50 playtesters to try it out. If selected, you'll have to sign an NDA. This is really happening folks!

"We're looking for play-testers for the next 3D Realms title. An unannounced game using the classic "Build Engine", used to develop legendary MS-DOS games such as Duke Nukem 3D, Blood, Shadow Warrior etc. A brand new game built by an amazing crew," the studio said on its Facebook page.

Following the failure of Gearbox's Duke Nukem Forever, a true return to the classic era of nostalgia would probably be a huge boon for the series...but there's no guarantee that's what 3D Realms is actually working on (we can hope though!). What would you like to see from 3D Realms?
