John Romero releasing a new Doom episode

Post by outdated_gamer » Sat Dec 22, 2018 9:31 am

If you're into Doom and metal, you gonna like this:

https://www.romerogames.ie/sigil/

https://www.pcgamer.com/john-romero-has ... m-episode/

It will be released for free but the boxed version and the soundtrack will be buyable.

Meanwhile, 3D Realms are making a new original Quake engine powered FPS.

Seems like "old school" 3D shooters from the 90s are making a comeback, also keeping in mind the excellent Ion Maiden and several other games like DUSK, Amid Evil, Apocryph, Overload, etc.

I haven't kept up with Doom for years, though I still play the original from time to time!

I'll have to check this out...

Played through the first few levels. Looks really good with some great lighting effects.

Does feel a bit linear though....
