Doom Platformer

Jens Winterstein finally made a Doom platformer! Cool! 🙂

In another studio the isometric doom is coming along nice and steady.

[…] he found a VHS tape that had some DOOM footage on it before its release


Read about the making of doom.

[…] I want a game where you control a group of four marines from an isometric perspective. One of them should have a device which allows you to mind-control the demons. – sneetch

[…] A Doom II remake with a built-in map editor, mod downloader and community features would keep me entertained for the next 10 years or so. Think Trackmania, but with demons. – yehat

[…] I want it all procedurally generated. Infinite Doom!

[…] in that beta version of Doom, they forgot to strip the executable, which means that the symbol tables were still there and it was easy to do some reverse engineering on the code. – Raphael

Doom: Fall of Mars

Filed under: games — Tags: , , — zproxy @ 2:09 pm

Doom: Fall of Mars is id’s setting, monsters and essential armoury dressed, with surprising finesse, in Diablo’s clicky clothes. It is cheerfully shameless about it, employing the sprites et al of Doom, and the oh-so-familiar fonts and inventory of Blizzard’s kill’n’collect pseudo-RPG. While this is only a proof of concept demo (comprising three levels, a few bosses and a ton of what I believe the younglings call Phat Lewt), it’s safe to say it realises the cartoonishly compulsive elements of both games remarkably well: this is a standalone modlet that we gladly award the official RPS A Right Old Giggle trophy to.

Coolness :), some even name it Doomablo!

I myself was thinking of making this for wolfenstein where you could switch between first person view and the isometric view…

When is it coming?

The Making Of Doom

“The game designer shouldn’t be making a world in which the player is just a small part,” echoed Carmack. “The player’s the boss; it’s your duty to entertain him or her.” In the midst of this debate and other creative differences, Hall left Id to become project manager at Apogee. – gamesetwatch
