The definitive ‘Doom’ port: they manage to make it work in Windows notepad at 60 fps

The category of ‘Doom’ in things does not stop surprising us. We have seen it in tractors, BIOS, and calculators. But the project that we have known today takes the cake. User Sampson has achieved something even more complicated: being able to play ‘Doom’ in Windows Notepad and working perfectly.

As simple as beastly

The result is fantastic. But at the same time, simple. A little genius. Simply ‘Doom,’ running on text and characters. The best thing is that the result is very fluid and works at 60 fps.

Nothing better than seeing it for yourself to get an idea. Here we leave you the tweet and video of the developer:

The list of ‘Doom’ ports is vast and is common practice among many developers. This port works on Notepad.exe without modifications, on Windows 10, and using ASCII characters as the graphics engine.

Over the next few days, the author explains that he will release the playable version for the rest: NotepadDOOM. “It’s a matter of polishing some details,” he says.

John Romero, the creator of Doom, has recognized the value of this adaptation, describing the work with a simple word: “incredible.” It is not for less.
