The ever-growing list of devices you can play Doom on now includes a Lego brick. No joke, someone made a tiny little desktop and everything.
On Sunday, well-known tinkerer James Brown got the original 1993 version of Doom up and running on a makeshift Lego terminal (thanks, PC Gamer). The screen is only 0.42 inches, resulting in a resolution of 72×40. Far too tiny for us humans, but teeny Lego folks? It’s perfect. After all, Nobody is too small when it comes to blasting the demonic legions of hell.
Best of all, Brown even included gameplay! Check out Doom running on Lego for yourself below.
It’s wild that there’s even audio. Brown went into considerable detail on how this setup works, and it’s worth taking a gander at since loads of effort went into this contraption. The screen isn’t all that legible, but hey, it’s just for fun!
There’s been a can-it-run-Doom meme within the games industry for several years, which practically begs people to get iD Software’s classic shooter running on virtually any device. Some of the more outlandish setups include 100 pounds of potatoes, motherboard BIOS, home pregnancy tests, and rotary phones. Imagine hauling some ancient telephone onto the kitchen table to play Doom? Couldn’t be me.
