Question to Charlie: how was the donkey ride supposed to work?

#1

So in the leak, the donkey ride level is very short, and the donkey itself just walks for a while, but in the end it doesn't go anywhere, to the point that you can't complete the level. This tells me it was extremely incomplete, but how was it planned to work?

I have 3 hypotheses:

1) the donkey was meant to work like a vehicle, so the player could control it, make it walk, run, stop, and so on, with its running speed being faster than Duke's running speed (otherwise Duke would just go on foot).

2) the level was supposed to toy with the expectations of the player, so it would start as an extremely slow ride that cannot be controlled, only for a "FOUR HOURS LATER" title card appearing after 30 seconds or so, and then Duke already being at his destination, making a comment about how boring it was

3) the ride was a joke at the expense of the player: long, slow, uncontrollable, boring, and justified with a strawman argument that conflates quiet time (where you choose not to take part in the action and instead you explore the level at your own pace, searching for interesting stuff) with railroading (where you are forced to do nothing but watch and wait).

Which one was it?

I'm pretty sure I discovered it. These are posts I made in the 3DRealms Discord server on February 28, 2020.

Did we really reach the point where people are arguing who was the first one to find the donkey blowjob thing in DNF?

He actually was a regular poster here up until a year and a half ago or so. He dropped off because of stuff going on in his life, signing in once after the leak dropped to comment on it and that he was alright.
