DOOMED: Demons of the Nether turns Minecraft into modern DOOM

By - | Views: 11,591

What do Minecraft and modern DOOM have in common? Not a lot but a modder decided to merge them together to create DOOMED: Demons of the Nether and it's pretty darn good.

Giving you a single-player campaign, this free to download mod is inspired by the modern DOOM games borrowing plenty of design elements. Technically, in Minecraft land, it's an adventure map pack but it really does change the game. Take a look at just how impressive it is:

Installation is easy enough too and I've tested it working nicely on Linux.

Make sure you have a fresh install of Minecraft 1.16.13, download the pack and then simply extract the contents into your Minecraft saves folder usually found in ~/.minecraft/saves/. That's it, as it comes with everything needed.

Once done, load Minecraft up and select it from the Singleplayer menu and it will guide you through a few settings you might need to tweak to make it look as intended. Absolutely brilliant.

I am stuck between "Wow!" and "Why?!".
Hmmm. Would this work on Minetest?
And on that day DooMCraft was born. Cool project.

Never had the patience for Minecraft. I tried Minetest but got bored fast.

I can explain. Nothing is ever complete until it can run DOOM.

Like Minecraft: https://twitter.com/gegy1000/status/1469714451716882434
(the real thing, this is because of a log4j exploit)

Or a voting machine:

(Jup, exploit. Don't ever use voting machines without paper trails)

There's of course a reddit for it https://www.reddit.com/r/itrunsdoom/
