The /newstuff Chronicles #510
Csonicgo on Woodlan School: Imagine: it's the mid-nineties, you're in high school, and you've carried with you the shovelware Doom CD you snagged at the local computer store. You discovered the packaged map editor for Windows the night before. So when no one's looking, you rush to the computer lab. You install it, set it up, and realize you have opened Pandora's box. Hooray! You can make levels now! Infinite replay value! So, naturally, what will your first real map be? Why, your school, of course! (more)

The /newstuff Chronicles #509

Not Jabba on Lebanon Connection: [...] clearly not a level that takes itself seriously. The textfile contains a short, goofy story about human rights violations and enslaved Lost Souls. The level itself is cleverly designed as a fully playable experience (unlike most jokewads), but it's still clearly a joke, and the puzzle elements can be extremely frustrating. (more)



Doom 2016 Passes 1 Million Sales On Steam (Maybe)

I was looking at Doom 2016's SteamSpy page and noticed that Doom 2016 probably passed the 1 million mark sometime recently. For comparison, Rage has 1.26 million owners after years of deep discounts and at least one free weekend, and Wolfenstein: The New Order has 1.2 million owners. And Doom is still at full price!

So maybe that's good enough to greenlight a sequel? Who knows??
