Doom (1993)

Id Software


Doom hit PC screens in 1993 and was the follow-up to Wolfenstein 3D by developers John Carmack and John Romero. Like its predecessor, Doom was produced in conjunction with Apogee whom are best known for creating both Commander Keen and Duke Nukem. The first episode of Doom, Knee Deep in The Dead, was released as free shareware with the second and third installments, (Shores of Hell, Inferno) available for purchase.


Doom was one of the first games to allow users to modify the source codes, hence creating a “mod” community. One such mod replaced the characters of Doom with those of The Simpsons and featured Ned Flanders throwing flaming Bibles at the player.
