The Origins of Doom
We here at KBMOD have a lot of respect for the past. A few of us began our PC gaming love affair when id Software’s masterpiece Doom was released. If you missed that golden era of PC gaming, prepare for an important history lesson.
PCGamesN published an article today on the making of Doom. I encourage you to read how the small team (which ended up being only two people by the end of the project) created one of the greatest games of all time and changed gaming forever. And while Doom is best known for its role in creating the modern FPS genre, it was also a pioneer in other aspects like mod tools–the WAD files that housed Doom’s game content were relatively easy to modify, allowing players to create and change the game in ways the developers didn’t originally intend or specifically plan for.
If you’re itching for more Doom now that we have your nostalgia juices flowing, you only have to wait a short five days for the new levels, monsters, and scares that await you with the release of Doom 3 BFG Edition. You can check out the trailer for the revamped version of this classic below:
