Title: Duke Nukem 3D: Naferia's Reign: Invasion of the Dark Mistress
Genre: first person shooter
Developed by: Jack Walker <clint20[at]neo.rr.com>
Site: http://www.zxdware.net/NR
Development started: 1997
Platform: Windows

NR:IotM is a modification for 3D Realms' classic first person shooter, Duke Nukem 3D: Atomic Edition.

Fourteen characters will be playable in total; Among other characters (not related to the series) Ami (regular character) and Minako (secret character) will be available.

Here is a few of Ami and Minako's unique abilities/attributes:

- If standing in water, her damage against monsters is 3.5x stronger and her defense against attacks is also equally stronger
- If UNDER the water, her damage against monster is 6x stronger and her defense against attacks is also equally stronger
- Takes 33% more damage from Fire-based damage and explosions
- Takes 90% less damage from Ice-based damage and explosions
- Mercury VR Visor allows Ami to light up areas and monsters. Additionally if the targetter is pointed at a monster while turned on, she can read their exact stats, including their Level, HP, Armor, etc.

- Metal-Based hitscanning attacks deal 75% less damage [basically bullets/shotgun pellets/etc]
- Explosives and Missile attacks deal 33% less damage [basically RPG missiles and other explosive attacks]
- 50% more benefit from normal health items (Small Medikit recovers 15% instead of 10%)
- Can jump higher than most of the characters

- Both have three possible forms to use in the game: "Civilian", "Senshi" and then the super-powerful "Balanced" form, which in later versions of the game have to be accquired through special means.
- Civilian form doubles attack damage to enemies, but also reduces defense from enemy damage by 33%.
- Senshi form doubles defense from enemy damage, but reduces attack damage to enemies by 33%.
- Balanced form triples attack damage to enemies AND defense from enemy damage, but will have a minor MP drain in later versions to offset it. (Balanced form basically looks like their "Princess/Queen Outfits", and one idea is that the respective character will have to find a way to warp to their planetary castle to acquire the balanced form.)

Note: Both Ami and Minako are planned to be able to use their special attacks in all three forms [this is to give all the forms some semblance of balance], and will probably have new moves they don't have in the series.

Download of the project's demo version is available at developer's website.
