In the works since March 2020, Doomed: Demons of the Nether is a Minecraft adventure map that turns Mojang’s game into Doom. At the time of writing this news there are only a few hours left until the release and, from what we have seen, it is really out of scale.
Installing Doomed: Demons of the Nether you can in fact face an extensive single player campaign with levels set on Mars, in the UAC facility, in the Foundry and in the Nether, using weapons and custom skills to face new enemies and bosses. There are also movies for interlude sequences, just to understand the level reached.
Sibogy, the author of Doomed: Demons of the Nether, has stated that he was inspired by 2016’s Doom, though he says his game is a work in itself. In short, it’s not a copy/paste of id Software’s, but it will feel new and fresh even for those who know it very well. Sibogy: “I didn’t want to make a 1:1 copy because at that point it’s better to play Doom. I implemented everything I felt was fun.”
Sibogy spent about 1,200 hours making Doomed: Demons of the Nether. Some Minecraft limitations forced him to make cuts, such as glory kills or shooting. For the rest, he has made from scratch the hitboxes, the 3D models, the artificial intelligence of the enemies and many animations.
Currently the map is ready for launch, although Sibogy would have liked to make a standalone map for a horde mode, made of waves of demons of progressive strength to be shot down.
