Take down a resurrected Maggie Thatcher in this upcoming Doom II campaign

By - | Views: 19,628

Yes that's right, Maggie Thatcher has somehow escaped from Hell in Thatcher's Techbase, a new Doom II campaign that has been announced that will be free to grab on September 24.

Developed by 3D: Doom Daddy Digital this will be a very British take on the whole Doom thing that I can't wait to jump into with a cuppa. Might need a few biscuits too as apparently the UK is the 10th circle of Hell - well it's not wrong. It will be provided as a standard WAD file so it will be playable across any system that can play it. The developer mentioned compatibility with PRBoom, DSDA-Doom, ZDoom and GZDoom.

The trailer mentions it will have support for five difficult levels, co-op and deathmatch support, gamepad support and an original soundtrack too.

It will need a copy of DOOM II which you can get from GOG and Steam.

yes, but some more than others. If any, Thatcher, Stalin, Hitler, Pinochet, etc. are on the top list.

I wasn't aware that Corbyn ruled and has done concrete harm by his political decisions? But I'm not from UK :)


To go back to the subject, amazing the longevity of all these DoomII revivals. I would mean that 1994 was a singularity year in video game?
For me, it was more 1996 with Civilization II, 1997/1998 with Might and Magic VI: The Mandate of Heaven, Diablo and Fallout. And 1999 for multiplayer game (FPS were boring before) with Unreal Tournament.
No a fan of DoomII

QuoteShe and Reagan have probably already privatized hell at this point, and everything starting to go haywire

Am not British or anything, but putting thatcher in that list seems a bit extreme?

I smell a political agenda going on by the author here. About left definitely not right
