Shacknews Doom feature

Recommended Posts

Shacknews just published this huge piece on Doom (the original, 2016, and everything in between) I thought y'all might enjoy reading. Viggles, Skillsaw, and I were interviewed for the section on modern WADs, which is pretty radical. It's a heck of a read, though.

Geez, that's like a novella. Also oh hey there's my interview too!!

I'm currently off-and-on working a new vanilla Doom "map" that will show off another little-used avenue of exploiting the Doom engine, and I have various other ideas in store for the future.

And yeah this was the "Antrywey" savegame thing.

You're not wrong!  It's nearly 40,000 words long!

 

Very cool interviews though!  Well done to you, Ling, @Viggles and @skillsaw.

Very well thought out article, even if it is a bit of a novel =). I'm flattered my Ancient Aliens map was one of the featured shots and got covered a little. I was in a slump with some other botched ideas before the thought of ruins stretching into the clouds came to mind, and nearly lost hope again when I was having trouble translating the bluish-grey hues of the textures to the palette. Turns out converting the clouds to greyscale and the sky to a monochrome shade of baby blue was surprisingly convincing enough =P.

Yeah, this looks like it should have been about 10 different articles. Actually, it looks like it is 10 different articles inexplicably on a single page. Frustrating to see what's obviously an epic piece of work torpedoed by its own bad presentation.

Yeah, it seemed like a lot to take in so I just scrolled to find a bit that looked particularly interesting. Doomworld history and Doom mapping/modding history in general is something I always love to read about. Seems like no matter how many times it comes up, I still learn some new detail I'd never noticed or thought of before. Good stuff aside from the page being several miles long rather than a few separate pages!

I sat down with a nice cup of tea and read through this. Very interesting stuff, thanks for sharing.
