Minecraft makes a Doom 2 reference?

Recommended Posts

I first saw this not too long ago, and I was like what is this referencing? I thought a little and I laughed my head off. It was referencing Doom 2's little weirdness of how on the automap for MAP11 it says 'O' of Destruction, and on Intermission screens it is referred to as Circle of Death. This really caught me by surprise, perhaps one of the creators of Minecraft likes Doom 2 or something?

I don't know how much a Doom fan Notch is,


Notch, a.k.a. Markus Alexej Persson, was the creator of the STARK Doom-like engine, one of the early serious attempts at making a Java port of Doom.

He even was a Doomworld member: first mention of the STARK engine.

Is that enough of a relevance to you? :-p

That's a pretty obscure reference for someone who is just a casual fan.


Are you talking about me, or Notch? Because if you are talking about me, I don't think "casual" is the right word for me. Just saying, most people here are the hardcore Doom fans.

I did not know this. Thanks for shedding some light on the subject.

Minecraft has exactly 1 (one) creator. So I guess he does like Doom.

Minecraft has one guy that originated the game, but it's developed by all of Mojang now, it does have multiple creators. Still, the Doom references are purely from Notch.

heh, I can answer easily, because I play both games very much time :D

Minecraft menu texts have a lot of references:

Phobos Anomaly! -> Doom E1M8, of course :)
idspispopd! -> Doom noclip code
MAP11 has two names! -> Doom2 MAP11 easter egg: 'O' of Destruction and Circle of Death :)

I don't know anything else, but it's possible :)
