DOOM is one of those rare games that can be played on just about any platform. With the adventure map DOOMED: Demons of the Nether, a single developer's project allows Minecraft players to play through a recreation of the 2016 DOOM game.

Created by Sibogy over the course of two years, DOOMED is an series of four pre-created maps that take players through the Martian surface, the UAC Facility, The foundry, and into the Nether. However, DOOMERD is a lot more than just a reskin and some maps. This map adds a variety of new gameplay elements borrowed from the source material. Players will have a variety of guns to use on classic DOOM enemies, armor shards can be collected to stay protected from damage, and even some more subtle, lesser-known details make it into this Minecraft adventure. Try throwing a grenade into a Cacodemon's mouth!

Talking to PCGamesN, Sibogy said that they didn't want to make a 1:1 copy of DOOM because "you might as well play Doom at that point." In the past, Sibogy has also worked on resource packs and maps for Minecraft based on things such as co-op puzzles and Call of Duty's Zombies mode. In the future, Sibogy is tempted to create a "standalone map with an endless mode with waves of demons," although the main challenge with that would be the "limited AI range" in Minecraft.

DOOMED: Demons of the Nether can be downloaded on its official website. No additional mods are required to play the mod, as the map comes with a resource pack and data pack that comes with the world save.
