Fantasy author hired to pen Doom 4 plot
Kill monsters, find keys, open doors, and..?
The author of a number of well-known fantasy/horror novels has been signed up to help pen the plot for Doom 4.
It’s been known for some time that the game’s original creator, Id Software, had planned to make a fourth installment in the first-person shooter series. But the firm’s kept mum about the latest incarnation’s storyline, leaving most fans to assume that it will pick up where Doom 3 left off.
Graham Joyce: still a Doom buff
However, Graham Joyce - British author of The Limits of Enchantment, The Tooth Fairy and Smoking Poppy - has since said on his official blog that he’s “been hired to contribute to the storyline of Doom 4”.
Joyce hasn’t revealed anything about the storyline, but has tried to put the fears of any gamers thinking 'What the f***k does he know about Doom?' to rest by stating that he often casually mangles a few demons in Doom.
We’re expecting big things from you, Joyce. ®
"Kill monsters, find keys, open doors, kill big monster" *is* the story. But why use the God mode?
idkfa does it all... (How's that? I can still remember it :-))
Now off to try the flash version...
Just in case there's anyone looking for a dose of nostalgia...
Someone's done a nice Flash version of the Shareware level of Doom 1 here: http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/470460
It even has the secret level. Doesn't allow saving, though...
playing doom, after a hard days work, god mode and chainsaw, or gode mode and rocket launcher. Using a mod to replace the demons faces with people from work, was the iceing on the cake. (and lucrative once people at work found out, and asked me for copies of the modified version, with the managers face on the demons.)
