Programmer Foone Turing is quite familiar with internet memes, especially the one where someone asks if a random device can run iD Software’s DOOM. So, he took it upon himself to demolish the challenge by getting a DOOM gameplay video running on a pregnancy test. Currently, the additional hardware needed to get the video playing is too large to fit inside the tester itself, but future revisions will change that. Why? Well, the existing CPU can’t be reprogrammed and the existing LCD can only show 4 things, so he had to replace both to make any changes. Read more for a video and additional information.
Along with iD Software’s previous hit, Wolfenstein 3D, Doom helped define the FPS genre and inspired numerous clones. It’s frequently touted as one of the greatest games of all time, pioneering online distribution and technologies, like 3D graphics, networked multiplayer gaming, as well as support for custom modifications via packaged files (WADs). For those who weren’t around for the original release in 1993, the first episode, comprising nine levels, was distributed freely as shareware, which was followed up with two further episodes, sold via mail order.
