Doom Night III Announced for March 26th, 2010

Doom fans, we know you are out there, prepare for a fight. Stand tall, dust off your helmets, cinch the armor on a little tighter and check your aim at the door. That sound of gunfire you hear in the distance is Doom Night III.  DMIII is based on the oldstyle play and enjoyment that the Doom series had in spades.

Doom originally not capable of online play, sure you had LAN and direct play available. id, Doom’s creaters, left Doom pretty open to modders, for proof just check out some of the sites devoted to Doom mods and levels. Eventually id took this opennes one step farther when they released the source code for free to the world.

That brings us to Doom Night III. See DMIII is just an event for fans to get together and shoot like it is 1994 again. Using a hacked version of Doom, thanks to the source code being made available, called Skulltag. Skulltag is the culmination of many disperate things like online gameplay and some graphics and sound mods.

Doom Night III, as the name suggests, is the third event in this series. On Friday March 26th, 2010 anyone joining the fight will have a chance to take on members of The Retro League, Tigerclaw Radio, Retroware TV, Out-of-Print Archive and yes, members of the editorial team here at Pixel Perfect Gaming.

Pixel Perect Gaming and Tigerclaw Radio, with special thanks to The Retro League, are teaming up to offer a copy of the original shareware version of Doom on 2 3 1/2 inch floppies in the cardboard fliptop box.
