DOOM II made of … cardboard, which is another end of the internet

I influenced the dry space of YouTube
Doom, all made of cardboard, enters the screen,
nostalgia is born among the blood and guts,
I am looking for codes of immortality …

“Stepy phobosiaÅ„skie” – author unknown

They have momentum …

I must admit that when I read the mention of this project, the first thing I remembered was a joke with the Albanian virus, in which we had to harm ourselves, to the glory of Albanian hackers who had no access to the computer. As it turned out, however, the project was prepared on a grand scale, the creator recreated several large locations and introduced a whole host of enemies, and involved John Romero, co-founder of id Software and the author of Wolfenstein, Doom and Quake, in the entire project.

The work of the author of this idea, Bill Thorp, is an impressive 11-minute film that is both a cheek and a tribute to this iconic game (at least for people like me, who already have 4 in front). The effect is very funny and will surely remind many players of their youth. This nostalgic character was emphasized in the introduction, presenting a floppy version of the game, a “period” computer and a cardboard version of Windows 95 (this one actually operated as if it were made of this material).

Old blood and guts

The very recreation of the gameplay is even more impressive, special effects in the form of blood are added, made with physical liquid, cardboard opponents are actually massacred and torn to shreds. What’s more, in some places the characters have an interior and guts, of course splashing at the right moment on the stage. The most important locations were recreated, key weapons and opponents were shown, and the game was also played with cheats. Romero plays the role of the main opponent and of course it ends badly for him.

As the description shows, the film is the result of over 9 months of work and it really shows. Anyone who has happened to make some time-lapse movies will surely grab their head, imagining how much energy the creator had to put into this production. In the case of a normally shot film, the scale of difficulty is even greater than in animation, because all sequences must be performed in full.

The end of the internet

It cannot be denied that not everyone will like the design, but I love such twisted ideas. Such “ends of the internet”, which we most often reach by accident, give hope that the digital revolution will not end only with pumping fatal information sold by news portals and jumping at each other’s throats in social networks. The absurd humor straight from Monty Python is something our world really needs. Until all of this I listen to “Du hast” in Yiddish. 😉
