Episode 114: DOOM (1993)

Feb 10, 08:00 AM

Space month continues with a new installment in the GAME edition of The Horrorble People's Podcast, and we're going big. This week the team and special guests Alex and James of N4L gaming take a look at the horror inspired, granddaddy of all first person shooters: DOOM (1993)! We take a look at how a bunch of students at a NASA internship created the first person shooter, and how that formula eventually refined itself into some good old demon slaying with DOOM. We take you through the crazy, metal blaring office shenanigans of iD software in its early days, and how a bold team with a lot of talent made an underground genre in gaming mainstream - and angered A LOT of Christians in the process! Lots of booze, hilarity, and unfortunate mispronunciations are present in this one, so shoot us 5 stars like you're being chased out of hell by a pixelated demons!
