In level four of Shrapnel City: L.A. Rumble, an earthquake strikes as Duke approaches a tall, black building with the sign "East Town Towers", and Duke says, "I ain't afraid of no quake." This is a reference to iD software's upcoming competitor Quake
(1996), which would be released four months later, and featured a far superior 3D engine than the Build engine used to create Duke Nukem 3D
(1996). Furthermore, the destroyed building is replica of the real-life "Town East Towers" in Mesquite, Texas, where iD Software's headquarters were located at the time. See more
