This mod makes Doom a literal corridor shooter

Posted by: on pcgamer April 8, 2019


"All Doom Levels are Straight Line now" says the description for Linear Doom. "No more mazes." This self-described "jokewad" by modder DeXiaZ released on April 1 takes all of Doom's classic levels and tightens them down into one long corridor. There's enough room to strafe a little so you can still potentially dodge those imp fireballs, but otherwise this is just a straight line run through all of Doom's enemies, weapons, and pickups one after the other. I look forward to seeing the speedruns of this.

You can download Linear Doom from ModDb.

Thanks, Kotaku.

DOOM - May 6, 2019

Originally released in August last year, Doom Remake 4 is a huge mod compilation for the original Doom that basically turns it into a modern first-person shooter. In addition to turning the old sprite-based items into full 3D (everything from objects to enemies), it introduces new HD textures with physically-based rendering, meaning surfaces will interact with lighting.
