The player controls an unnamed space marine—later termed " Doomguy "—through a series of levels set in military bases on the moons of Mars and in hell. To finish a level, the player must traverse through the area to reach a marked exit room. Levels are grouped together into named episodes, with the final level focusing on a boss fight with a particularly difficult enemy. While the environment is presented in a 3D perspective, the enemies and objects are instead 2D sprites presented from several preset viewing angles, a technique sometimes referred to as 2.
Levels are often labyrinthine, and a full screen automap is available which shows the areas explored to that point. While traversing the levels, the player must fight a variety of enemies, including demons and possessed undead humans, while managing supplies of ammunition, health , and armor. Enemies often appear in large groups, and the game features five difficulty levels which increase the quantity and damage done by enemies, with enemies respawning upon death and moving faster than normal on the hardest difficulty setting.
The monsters have very simple behavior, consisting of either moving toward their opponent, or attacking by throwing fireballs, biting, using magic abilities, and clawing. They will reactively fight each other if one monster inadvertently harms another, though most monsters are immune to attacks from their own kind. The environment can include pits of toxic waste , ceilings that lower and crush everything, and locked doors requiring a keycard or a remote switch. The player can find weapons and ammunition throughout the levels or can collect them from dead enemies, including a pistol, a chainsaw , a plasma rifle , and the BFG Power-ups include health or armor points, a mapping computer, partial invisibility, a safety suit against toxic waste, invulnerability, or a super-strong melee berserker status.
The main campaign mode is single-player mode, in an episodic succession of missions. Two multiplayer modes are playable over a network: cooperative , in which two to four players team up to complete the main campaign,  and deathmatch , in which two to four players compete. The campaign contains very few plot elements, with the minimal story instead given in the instruction manual and in short text segues between episodes.
In the future, an unnamed marine known as the "Doom marine" or "Doom guy" is posted to a dead-end assignment on Mars after assaulting a superior officer who ordered his unit to fire on civilians. The Union Aerospace Corporation, which operates radioactive waste facilities there, allows the military to conduct secret teleportation experiments that go terribly wrong.
A base on Phobos urgently requests military support, while Deimos disappears entirely, and the marine joins a combat force to secure Phobos. He waits at the perimeter as ordered while the entire assault team is wiped out. With no way off the moon, and armed with only a pistol, he enters the base intent on revenge. In "Knee-Deep in the Dead", the marine fights demons and possessed humans in the military and waste processing facilities on Phobos.
The episode ends with the marine defeating two powerful Barons of Hell guarding a teleporter to the Deimos base. Emerging from the teleporter, he is overwhelmed and comes to with only a pistol again. In "The Shores of Hell", he fights on through Deimos research facilities that are corrupted with satanic architecture and kills a gigantic cyberdemon. From an overlook he discovers that the moon is floating above hell and rappels down to the surface.
In "Inferno", the marine takes on hell itself and destroys a cybernetic spider-demon that masterminded the invasion of the moons. A portal to Earth opens and he steps through, only to find that Earth has also been invaded.
In May , id Software released Wolfenstein 3D , later called the "grandfather of 3D shooters",   specifically first-person shooters, because it established the fast-paced action and technical prowess commonly expected in the genre and greatly increased the genre's popularity. Following the release of Spear of Destiny in September , the team began to plan their next game.
They wanted to create another 3D game using a new engine Carmack was developing, but were largely tired of Wolfenstein. They initially considered making another game in the Commander Keen series, as proposed by co-founder and lead designer Tom Hall , but decided that the platforming gameplay of the series was a poor fit for Carmack's fast-paced 3D engines. Additionally, the other two co-founders of id, designer John Romero and lead artist Adrian Carmack , wanted to create something in a darker style than the Keen games.
The team agreed to pursue the Doom concept, and development began in November They also decided to cut ties with Apogee Software , their previous publisher, and to instead self-publish Doom. Early in development, rifts in the team began to appear.
At the end of November, Hall delivered a design document , which he named the Doom Bible , that described the plot, backstory, and design goals for the project. Over a series of levels, the player discovers that the aliens are demons while hell steadily infects the level design over the course of the game. Hall disliked the idea, but the rest of the team sided with Carmack.
At the start of , id put out a press release, touting Hall's story about fighting off demons while "knee-deep in the dead". The press release proclaimed the new game features that John Carmack had created, as well as other features, including multiplayer gaming features, that had not yet even been designed. Soon, however, the Doom Bible as a whole was rejected. Romero wanted a game even "more brutal and fast" than Wolfenstein , which did not leave room for the character-driven plot Hall had created.
Additionally, the team believed it emphasized realism over entertaining gameplay, and they did not see the need for a design document at all. John Carmack and Romero, however, disliked Hall's military base-inspired level design. Romero especially believed that the boxy, flat level designs were uninspiring, too similar to Wolfenstein , and did not show off the engine's capabilities. He began to create his own, more abstract levels for the game, which the rest of the team saw as a great improvement.
Hall was upset with the reception to his designs and how little impact he was having as the lead designer. Much to the chagrin of the programmers who were also the decision makers at the time , they relented and Petersen was immediately hired.
He redesigned 20 out of the 27 levels and they were well received by the team. The team also added a third programmer, Dave Taylor. This allows for any part of the design to be changed without needing to adjust the engine code. Carmack designed this system so fans could easily modify the game; he had been impressed by the modifications made by fans of Wolfenstein 3D , and wanted to support that with an easily swappable file structure along with releasing the map editor online.
Unlike Wolfenstein , which had flat levels with walls at right angles, the Doom engine allows for walls and floors at any angle or height, though two traversable areas cannot be on top of each other. The lighting system was based on adjusting the color palette of surfaces directly: rather than calculating how light traveled from light sources to surfaces using ray tracing , the game calculates the light level of a small area based on its distance from light sources.
It then modifies the color palette of that section's surface textures to mimic how dark it would look. Adrian Carmack was the lead artist for Doom , with Kevin Cloud as an additional artist. They designed the monsters to be "nightmarish", with graphics that are realistic and dark instead of staged or rendered, so a mixed media approach was taken.
The images were then digitized and converted to 2D characters with a program written by John Carmack. As with Wolfenstein 3D , id hired composer Bobby Prince to create the music and sound effects. Romero directed Prince to make the music in techno and metal styles. Many tracks were directly inspired by songs by metal bands such as Alice in Chains and Pantera.
Prince created the sound effects based on short descriptions or concept art of a monster or weapon, and adjusted them to match the completed animations. With plans to self-publish, the team had to set up the systems to sell Doom as it neared completion. Jay Wilbur, who had been hired as CEO and sole member of the business team, planned the marketing and distribution of Doom. Instead, he reached out directly to software retailers, offering them copies of the first Doom episode for free, allowing them to charge any price for it, in order to spur customer interest in buying the full game directly from id.
Doom ' s original release date was the third quarter of , which the team did not meet. By December , the team was working non-stop on the game, with several employees sleeping at the office. Programmer Dave Taylor claimed that working on the game gave him such a rush that he would pass out from the intensity. Id began receiving calls from people interested in the game or angry that it had missed its planned release date, as hype for the game had been building online.
At midnight on December 10, , after working for 30 straight hours, the development team at id uploaded the first episode of the game to the Internet, letting interested players distribute it for them. So many users were connected to the first FTP server that they planned to upload the game to, at the University of Wisconsin—Madison , that even after the network administrator increased the number of connections while on the phone with Wilbur, id was unable to connect, forcing them to kick all other users off to allow id to upload the game.
When the upload finished thirty minutes later, 10, people attempted to download the game at once, crashing the university's network. Within hours of Doom ' s release, university networks were banning Doom multiplayer games, as a rush of players overwhelmed their systems.
In late , Doom was estimated to be installed on more computers worldwide than Microsoft's new operating system, Windows 95 , even with Microsoft's million-dollar advertising campaigns. The development was led by Gabe Newell , who later founded the game company Valve.
An unofficial port of Doom to Linux was released by id programmer Dave Taylor in ; it was hosted by id but not supported or made official. The ability for user-generated content to provide custom levels and other game modifications using WAD files became a popular aspect of Doom. Gaining the first large mod -making community, Doom affected the culture surrounding first-person shooters, and also the industry.
Several future professional game designers started their careers making Doom WADs as a hobby, such as Tim Willits , who later became the lead designer at id Software. The first level editors appeared in early , and additional tools have been created that allow most aspects of the game to be edited.
Although the majority of WADs contain one or several custom levels mostly in the style of the original game, others implement new monsters and other resources, and heavily alter the gameplay. Some add-on files were also made that changed the sounds made by the various characters and weapons.
From to , WADs were primarily distributed online over bulletin board systems or sold in collections on compact discs in computer shops, sometimes bundled with editing guide books. FTP servers became the primary method in later years.
The idgames FTP archive contains more than 18, files,  and this represents only a fraction of the complete output of Doom fans. Third-party programs were also written to handle the loading of various WADs, since all commands must be entered on the DOS command line to run.
A typical launcher would allow the player to select which files to load from a menu, making it much easier to start. In , WizardWorks released the D! Zone pack featuring hundreds of levels for Doom and Doom II. This led PC Data to declare it the country's fourth-best-selling computer game for the period between January and April At the time, PC Data ranked them as the country's eighth- and 20th-best-selling computer games since January PC Zone ' s David McCandless wrote that the game was played by "an estimated six million people across the globe",  and other sources estimate that 10—20 million people played Doom within 24 months of its launch.
Doom became a problem at workplaces, both occupying the time of employees and clogging computer networks. Intel ,  Lotus Development , and Carnegie Mellon University were among many organizations reported to form policies specifically disallowing Doom -playing during work hours. At the Microsoft campus, Doom was by one account equal to a "religious phenomenon".
One reader said that "No other game even compares to the addictiveness of NetDoom with four devious players! Although Petersen said Doom was "nothing more than the computer equivalent of Whack-A-Mole ",  Doom received critical acclaim and was widely praised in the gaming press, broadly considered to be one of the most important and influential titles in gaming history.
Computer Gaming World stated in February that Wolfenstein 3D fans should "look forward to a delight of insomnia", and "Since networking is supported, bring along a friend to share in the visceral delights". The reviewer praised the "simply dazzling " graphics", and reported that "DeathMatches may be the most intense gaming experience available today". While criticizing the "ho-hum endgame" with a too-easy end boss , he concluded that Doom "is a virtuoso performance".
If only you could talk to these creatures, then perhaps you could try and make friends with them, form alliances Now, that would be interesting. A piece in the International Business Times defended the sentiment, saying it anticipated the dialogue systems of games such as Skyrim , Mass Effect and Undertale.
The editors wrote: "Although it's only been around for a couple of months, Doom has already done more to establish the PC's arcade clout than any other title in gaming history. Running on a machine essential for maximum effect , Doom took PC graphics to a totally new level of speed, detail, and realism, and provided a genuinely scary degree of immersion in the gameworld.
In , Doom was voted the number one game of all time in a poll among over game developers and journalists conducted by GameSpy. In , readers of Retro Gamer voted Doom as the ninth top retro game, with the editors commenting: "Only a handful of games can claim that they've changed the gaming world, and Doom is perhaps the most qualified of them all. In , Time named it one of the greatest video games of all time as "it established the look and feel of later shooters as surely as Xerox PARC established the rules of the virtual desktop ", adding that "its impact also owes a lot to the gonzo horror sensibility of its designers, including John Romero, who showed a bracing lack of restraint in their deployment of gore and Satanic iconography".
They said that the gameplay "still holds up", but argued it was inferior to Doom II due to the latter's improved enemy variety. Doom was notorious for its high levels of graphic violence  and satanic imagery, which generated controversy from a broad range of groups. Doom for the Genesis 32X was one of the first video games to be given an M for Mature rating from the Entertainment Software Rating Board due to its violent gore and nature.
Games listed it as one of the top ten most controversial games of all time. The game again sparked controversy in the United States when it was found that Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold , who committed the Columbine High School massacre on April 20, , were avid players of the game. While planning for the massacre, Harris said in his journal that the killing would be "like playing Doom ", and "it'll be like the LA riots , the Oklahoma bombing , World War II , Vietnam , Duke Nukem and Doom all mixed together", and that his shotgun was "straight out of the game".
Although Harris did design custom Doom levels which later became known as the " Harris levels " , none have been found to be based on Columbine High School. In the earliest release versions, the level E1M4: Command Control contains a swastika -shaped structure, which was put in as a homage to Wolfenstein 3D. The swastika was removed in later versions; according to Romero, the change was done out of respect after id Software received a complaint from a military veteran.
Doom has appeared in several forms in addition to video games, including a Doom comic book, four novels by Dafydd Ab Hugh and Brad Linaweaver loosely based on events and locations in the games , a Doom board game and a live-action film starring Karl Urban and The Rock released in The Doom series remained dormant between and , when Doom 3 was finally announced. A retelling of the original Doom using entirely new graphics technology and a slower paced survival horror approach, Doom 3 was hyped to provide as large a leap in realism and interactivity as the original game and helped renew interest in the franchise when it was released in , under the id Tech 4 game engine.
The series again remained dormant for 10 years until a reboot, simply titled Doom and running on the new id Tech 6 , was announced with a beta access to players that had pre-ordered Wolfenstein: The New Order. The game held its closed alpha multiplayer testing in October , as closed and open beta access ran during March to April Returning to the series' roots in fast-paced action and minimal storytelling, the full game eventually released worldwide on May 13, Development completely restarted as id's Tim Willits remarked that Doom 4 was "lacking the personality of the long-running shooter franchise".
Doom was influential and dozens of new first-person shooter games appeared following Doom ' s release, often referred to as " Doom clones". Some of these were cheap clones , hastily assembled and quickly forgotten, and others explored new grounds of the genre with high acclaim. Many of Doom ' s closely imitated features include the selection of weapons and cheat codes. The Doom game engine id Tech 1 was licensed by id Software to several other companies, who released their own games using the technology, including Heretic , Hexen: Beyond Heretic , Strife: Quest for the Sigil , and Hacx: Twitch 'n Kill.
A Doom -based game called Chex Quest was released in by Ralston Foods as a promotion to increase cereal sales,  and the United States Marine Corps produced Marine Doom as a training tool, later released to the public.
When 3D Realms released Duke Nukem 3D in , a tongue-in-cheek science fiction shooter based on Ken Silverman 's technologically similar Build engine , id Software had nearly finished developing Quake , its next-generation game, which mirrored Doom ' s success for much of the remainder of the s and reduced interest in its predecessor Wolfenstein 3D.
In addition to the thrilling nature of the single-player game, the deathmatch mode was an important factor in the game's popularity. Doom was not the first first-person shooter with a deathmatch mode; Maze War , an FPS released in , was running multiplayer deathmatch over ethernet on Xerox computers by The widespread distribution of PC systems and the violence in Doom made deathmatching particularly attractive. Two-player multiplayer was possible over a phone line by using a modem , or by linking two PCs with a null-modem cable.
Because of its widespread distribution, Doom hence became the game that introduced deathmatching to a large audience and was also the first game to use the term "deathmatch". Although the popularity of the Doom games dropped with the release of more modern first-person shooters, the game still retains a strong fan base that continues to this day by playing competitively and creating WADs, and Doom -related news is still tracked at multiple websites such as Doomworld.
Fans then began porting the game to various operating systems, even to previously unsupported platforms such as the Dreamcast. As for the PC, over 50 different Doom source ports have been developed. Devoted players have spent years creating speedruns for Doom , competing for the quickest completion times of individual levels and the whole game and sharing knowledge about routes through the levels and how to exploit bugs in the Doom engine for shortcuts.
Doom was one of the first games to have a speedrunning community, which has remained active up until the present day. A record speedrun on E1M1, the first level in the game, was achieved in September , and took 20 years and "tens of thousands of futile attempts" in order to be surpassed. In addition, a few players have also managed to complete Doom II in a single run on the difficulty setting "Nightmare! Online co-op and deathmatch play are still continued on fan-created services.
