GOG release: “DOOM 64”

id Software‘s, Nightdive Studios, and Bethesda‘s re-release of Midway Studios San Diego’s classic Nintendo FPS conversion DOOM 64 is now finally available DRM-free on GOG.

The original 1993 PC game, developed by id Software, certainly needs no introduction as a seminal FPS title that pushed the genre into new technological (as well as violent) territory. 4 years later, the Nintendo 64 received its own version with courtesy of Midway Studios San Diego, while it took 23 years before DOOM 64 was released on newer consoles and PC.

Of course the gameplay hasn’t changed a bit, as one still plays as a marine and kills as many demons as possible to prevent them from taking over Earth, collecting keycards along the way to open doors and reach the end of the 30 levels. It still looks great, probably because the textures are less pixelated, and compared to a few other recent re-releases it’s nice not to have any filters that alter the original style.

DOOM 64 was originally released in March 2020 and is now available DRM-free on GOG with a 75% launch discount that lasts until June 30, 2022, at 3 PM UTC.
