Forums - PC Discussion - John Romero's Sigil for the original Doom

Tagged games:

So, John Romero, one of the creators of the original Doom games, is releasing an unofficial fifth edisode, named Sigil, for the original Doom. It'll be released as a free mod in February, 2019, as well as limited physical editions with some fairly cool stuff.

Here's some more material if you want to learn more:

So, any thoughts on this? Personally I think this seems fairly cool. I think the 'proper' soundtrack comes only with the expensive ($40 or $166, depending on the edition) physical release though, which is a pity, but otherwise, I'm definitely not complaining. Oh, you do get Romero's head on a spike with the more expensive edition, so there's that.

Instead of seeking to convince others, we can be open to changing our own minds, and seek out information that contradicts our own steadfast point of view. Maybe it’ll turn out that those who disagree with you actually have a solid grasp of the facts. There’s a slight possibility that, after all, you’re the one who’s wrong.

Definitely something to look forward to. I find there's something intangible that makes the original creators' maps special, so to have a whole new set in that same vain is a very enticing prospect for sure.

It's free. Although you need the original Doom. The engine is free for a long time and has many spinoffs, ports and extension that allow to play Doom on modern machines. But you probably need the original WAD for assets.

What's Blackroom?

Blackroom was announced back in 2016 that John Romero and fellow id Software co-founder Adrian Carmack were working on. Supposed to be an ode to old school FPS games in the modern day, but haven't heard anything for almost 2 years now

Physically? Yes. In the game? I have no idea.
