Regardless of what it says about the merits of id's latest creepy corridor crawler, it is possible to play Doom 1
inside Doom 3
. Why, you ask? It's not because Doom 3
is so dark, you'd rather play Doom 1
in the glow of a terminal screen; rather, the Terminal Doom
project is a proof of concept study of "fully interactive surfaces." To that end, the mod creator writes, "In more than one respect, Terminal Doom
itself is a dead end."
Awww, but that doesn't mean you can't try it out. All you'll need is the retail version of Doom 3
, either the shareware or retail version of Doom 1
, and some patches and you're set to go. The in game arcade cabinets
are pretty great also.
