» OverDose has Sound!

Editors to be more specific, sound editors. It has a new sound system build from the ground up and that includes a new in game speaker editor and reverb editor. It also now has a fully scriptable particle and FX system so, as one of the creators puts it, “OverDose... is to be fully scriptable and can be changed by even a twerp with notepad.” Cool, eh?

They discontinued their website as the page was getting more traffic, so be sure to adjust your bookmarks. You can read the full details of the latest news release over at

OverDose is a class, team & objective based multiplayer game set on a post apocalyptic Earth, were the Confederate Marine Corps and Marauders battle it out for supremacy over the destroyed cities of a war torn world. Using idTech2 as a base, we are writing our engine from the ground up to take advantage of modern day graphical options and details levels to bring you eye popping class based multiplayer mayhem. This isn’t just war... Its an all out apocalypse!

» QUBE is on sale @ GOG.Com

I wouldn't normally do this, but in 2011 I held a contest over at PlanetQuake for Christmas. Toxic Games, the developer behind the puzzle game QUBE, gave me a couple Steam keys to give away for the contest.

That game is currently on sale at for $4, so if you like puzzle games pick this one up. I recommend it.

So THANK YOU Toxic Games for supporting the Quake community!

» The Ultimate Doom3Edit Tutorial

The words of the author, not mine (I haven't looked at it yet). HellKnightX posted a tutorial for Doom3Edit (the built in Doom 3 map editor) on Head there to get it.

The description reads:

The Ultimate DOOMEdit Tutorial since is down made by me. You NEED DOOM 3 Resurrection of Evil to run the map because there are certain entities that only work in resurrection of evil. I used all of the editing entities such as func,target,trigger,path. Some of them don't work. I want to help people with this tutorial aimed map. Please read the read me file. Thanks to: ID Software EMO Level Designer If you have any problem send message to me. Thanks-Kılıçarslan

It's about time! An unofficial addon for TrenchBroom that supports Quake 2! While we're waiting for TrenchBroom 2 with official Q2 support, this can satisfy those of why who wanted something better then the standard 4 pane map editors!

Can it run DOOM? Yes it can!

17 09 14 - 13:40

My brother sent me an e-mail yesterday with a BBC News article about a DOOM port. On a CANON printer! Yes, you can run DOOM a CANON Pixma printer! Who knew? Anyway, he also linked me to a site called “It Runs Doom!”, 100% about running our favorite classic demon shooter, DOOM on nearly anything. It's pretty neat to read and see what people are doing with the “old” game.

Is DOOM the most ported game ever? Not sure, I'm wondering if PacMan or Super Mario Bros could take that crown, but it very well could be!

Doom and Doom 2 as... shaders?

12 09 14 - 11:02

I guess I now know what a procedural shader is, and it is impressive (when it's Doom related). Found this in my Twitter feed this morning, retweeted by John Carmack. It's the start of Doom's E1M1 in an interactive shader. Don't worry if it looks like it froze your browser, it takes some time to load up.

Anyway check out the interactive Doom one here and look at the Doom 2 one here.
