It's that time of the year again — it's DOOMsday
, the 18th anniversary of DOOM's original release on December 10th 1993.
Doomworld, as usual, is hosting the annual Cacowards
, too; be sure to check them out and play this year's winners if you haven't done so already.
And while you're at it, celebrate DOOM's birthday by playing through the original levels! If you don't have it, grab a copy of the shareware episode
, download a source port so it'll run on your PC (I'd recommend Chocolate Doom
if you want something as close to Vanilla, PrBoom-plus
if you want a Boom-based port, or GZDoom
otherwise; alternatively, you can run the original in DOSBox, too).
Lock and load, marine! >:) Don't leave yet — there's a demon around that corner!
