Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The making of Doom, id Software's video game released on December 10, 1993, began in late 1992. Doom raised the bar for realism in video games with its then-advanced 3D graphics-central to its success was the new game engine by John Carmack, whose main advances included texture mapping of all surfaces, variable light levels, and floors at varying altitude. The world in Doom materialized through the artwork of Adrian Carmack, Kevin Cloud and Gregor Punchatz, and the level design of John Romero, Sandy Petersen and Tom Hall. Doom evolved significantly during its development. Originally planned to feature an intricate plot, its gameplay instead gradually turned to focus on fast action and violence. Conflicts surrounding this development led to the resignation of Tom Hall, who had written the Doom Bible, the game's initial design document.show more
