Doom II was originally released for MS-DOS computers in 1994 and Macintosh computers in 1995. For those who still remember, id Software did not go the shareware and mail order route this time, unlike the original game. It was such a success that a Master Levels expansion pack with 21 new levels made its way to stores on December 26, 1995. Gamer Bill Thrope spent 9-months recreating this FPS using cardboard and countless hours of editing.
This cardboard recreation isn’t a simple diorama, but several combat encounters, weapons, destruction effects, and even Doom Guy’s snarling avatar, along with a surprise John Romero appearance. To be more specific, he recreates the famous ‘Romero’s Head’ Doom 2 Easter egg. In the actual game, Doom II’s levels can be completed in a straightforward fashion, but since the levels are nonlinear, players can wander off the beaten path to look for bonuses as well as Easter eggs.
