What if Zombie made a D3 map...

21 03 13 - 11:29

No, not a D3 zombie, but the D3 mapper, and professional level designer, Zombie13 (did some work on Quake Wars and currently works for a major game studio). He likes to play with D3 tech (aka id Tech 4) and his latest creation is called “Bioscort” (not related to the short+skirt combo that I'm aware of).


He's got the gameplay down pretty good and doesn't have any of the details, but you can watch a video of the map gameplay. Click “more” for the videos!

Oculus Rift released Dev Kit doesn't support D3

19 03 13 - 19:17

The VR headset that used Doom 3 BFG as a kind of poser child in showing what it could do, isn't actually supporting Doom 3 BFG in the released development kits and thus won't included the promised D3 BFG from the Kickstarter campaign. It appears that the issue is that D3 BFG was made for older tech then they're releasing now. They support Valve's Team Fortress 2 instead.


To make up for this you can get $20 added to your Steam wallet, $25 in Oculus store credit or a full refund of your pledge.


Thanks to PeeWee for the news and you can read the full detains on the Oculus Rift blog.

Rock and Roll, new indy Doom clone game: Doomstalker

13 03 13 - 10:37

A new indy Doom-clone game has been brought to my attention: Doomstalker. Doomstalker is a pseudo-isomatric indy game for the Apple iOS systems (iPad/Pod) with the possibility of coming to Windows and OSX. It's started a Kickstarter campaign and is also on Steam Greenlight. You can check out their developlemt blog, their facebook site and indieDB site.


While not an exact Doom clone, it strives to have a Doom feel with similar characteristics as the original two games without ripping everything off. If you're interested in supporting it then head on over to their Kickstarter page. Click “more” to see the trailer!

Time for more media updates from the Prometheus mod.  This time we've got the player entering an alien ship , the control panel to move around the chair (Space Jokey chair) inside the ship and a handy dandy control layout so we know.
