DOOM Chip Game
For those who weren’t yet around when the original DOOM was released back in 1993, this first-person shooter, developed by id Software, was distributed freely as shareware and played by an estimated 21-million people within two years. However, the full game, with a total of three episodes, had to be purchased by mail order. Fast forward to today, programmer Sylvain Lefebvre has created a custom computer chip designed specifically to play a custom build of this game. Read more for a video and additional information.



Officially called “The DooM-chip!,” it is programmed to run E1M1 until the end of time, or when power runs out, whichever comes first. The algorithm has been burned into wires, LUTs and flip-flops on an FPGA. There’s no CPU, opcodes, or instruction counter, and it also runs on Altera CycloneV + SDRAM. All it took to get everything running was an ominous 666 lines of code.
