DOOM 64 is now available to stream on Google Stadia

By - | Views: 11,547

Google have added another game to their Linux-powered streaming service, with DOOM 64 now officially available. Already available on other stores and services, it was originally released in 1997 for the Nintendo 64 and was given a new life with an updated version with help from Nightdive Studios.

Considered something of a cult classic, this re-release has been quite well reviewed by players.

If you picked up DOOM Eternal on Stadia before April 3, Google have added it to your account for free, as it was on other platforms as a pre-order bonus. The Stadia version has a competitive price too at £3.99 / $4.99. Some good classic fun to be had if you enjoy your retro first-person shooters.

Not really. ProtonDB mentions lag when turning with the mouse. Probably related to the refresh rate of the device. Makes it unplayable for me.

Maybe I should try Stadia. Then again... I am trying to opt out of Google. :)

Subj is somewhere between doom and quake gameplay-wise, closer to the former admittedly. Player's eye-level intentionally lowered AFAIK, thus the enemies look unnaturally taller. Some features like eg the shotgun sound/function/animation looks very close to Quake. Think I've read somewhere that id monitored the progress and otherwise worked with the authors, possibly subj and Q intentionally share some things.
Overall the design is much more coherent and elegant (compared to the actual Doom), while the levels are noticeably simpler in composition generally.

There's no native version of this game, unless you mean Doom64EX which is not official.

well... never said nufin about oficiallness... Doom64EX is long since available, native, honest, and works fine. What else one would need.
Besides, nightdive are dirty little bloody liars.

PS "works well in Proton" should be on the offtopic list in a place like this. it's getting worse..

Proton is a piece of Linux software which enables Windows games to run on Linux so I would suggest it is on-topic in a place like this.

IMHO, Stadia shouldn't be mentioned 'in a place like this' as it really isn't Linux gaming!

Well Doom64EX does run natively, but it is not the exact same experience as the official re-release, tl:dr the new release is closer to the N64.
Google Stadia, now shipping 90s content -- look out SEGA Channel! What's Next Golden Axe II? Maybe we'll get StarCraft 64 :P

Give me a BattleTanx Global Assault BlockBuster rental and we'll be in business.
