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

By - | Views: 19,300

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.

Yeah! send her to SUPER-HELL

I guess she really wants her money back (or what she thinks to be hers, the one thing she hasn't forgotten about).

Quoting: Geppeto35yes, but some more than others. If any, Thatcher, Stalin, Hitler, Pinochet, etc. are on the top list.

Pinochet was her guy, so if he's on the list, then why not her?

I know it's popular online to be a rabid leftist, but Thatcher was a remarkably talented woman who deserves our respect, not mockery. This is tasteless.
To each their own, I suppose, but to me, politics poison everything they touch. For games, this is true whether or not one agrees with the developer's opinions. My favorite games transport me to another reality, rather than reminding me about the things I'd rather avoid in this one.

I wonder what are the personal political views of this game creator, because I like to know if it's a legit critic or pushing an agenda. That's how I personally do to avoid myself to be in a ideological bubble.

About the game, not much to comment besides another reskinned doom mod.

I definitely agree with that position.

However, that generally applies to games that try to preach underhandedly through characters in their story, etc. - it is usually very obvious, of course, since someone focused on preaching cannot also be focused on doing good writing.

Games that are very open about their intentions from the get-go and just entirely over-the-top in their implementation are IMO totally fine.
There is no deviousness in this, similar to something like Tonight we riot.
It's all out in the open here.

I mean, yeah, to leave that kind of enduring legacy of devastation no doubt required great talent. Not many could have pulled that off - though I guess we'll have to see what else good Boris can come up with.

To this day (and certainly for many years to come), UK is busy dealing with the many fallouts of Thatcher's regime - but I'm sure breaking a few unions, delaying inflation a bit and making sure rich people got richer at the cost of the poor was totally worth it

But I guess I'm just a rabid leftist (who usually get's called all kinds of "alt-righter"-like insults by exactly those).

She was one of the most damaging politicians in post WW2 history. Together with Reagan she brought us the extremist form of capitalism that in the following decades led to an insane concentration of wealth and power in the hands of a few, while leaving everyone else in the dust. Because of her, more and more people had to work two or three jobs and STILL couldn't pay their bills.
The current state of the world, where leaders emphasizing nationalism and protectionism are getting elected by the disenfranchised, is a direct result of Thatcher and Reagan's dismantling of any kind of social accord. Even the Brexit is very unlikely to have happened without her and her divisive politics, so that woman is influencing world politics in a damaging way even from the grave.

She actually deserves to be in place worse than hell.

That's why im increasingly playing more retro games.
