Look, it's that damn cake again. We will never be rid of that thing. Anyways, five years ago on March 13, 1998, Doomworld first opened its doors to the public, proclaiming itself as the definitive source for Doom news, information, and development. That's five long years of Doom news, projects, contests, events, and on and on and on. That's right, we were Doom webpageing back before it was cool! Total old school!
Since I'm no longer running Doomworld I didn't do any of my normal antics like make a "5 Years of Doomworld" webpage or something. And all these new staffers around here, save Mordeth, don't even remember those heady days of yore, back before forums and comment threads and even simple things like news updating scripts and databases. We did everything by hand and liked it, damnit!
But anyways, it just happens that I have something new to show for this year's anniversary. It's not a new design, like we've had on two birthdays in the past. This time, I've cooked up a new resource for you guys: the
Doomworld /idgames database
A pet project of mine for a while, the Doomworld /idgames database is just what it sounds like: a resource of all the files on /idgames, browsable of course, but also searchable by title, date, author, description, and so on and so forth. Over 11,000 WADs, each with fully catalogued info, links to all the download mirrors, as well as built-in WAD ratings and reviews for kicks. The Doomworld /idgames database should be your one-stop source for finding all the Doom levels you'll ever want. Plus I made it, damnit! So check out the Doomworld /idgames database and find something you might have missed.
