Hocus Pocus Doom
nate 7 Jan, 2020
A pretty impressive Doom wad was finished and released recently called Hocus Pocus Doom. It is a Doom wad based off a 1990s platformer called Hocus Pocus. As far as I can tell, it does not use any original Doom assets, but it was developed using the Gzdoom engine (and can be played natively on Linux). Gzdoom offers many enhanced features that were not possible with the original Doom (1993) engine (e.g. sloped terrain, graphics acceleration, etc).
