This is what a remastered HD version of Doom could look like

DSOGaming writes: "One of the reasons I love Doom 64 is because id Software decided to create new sprites for every monster and new textures for its environments. The end result was gorgeous back then and – to be honest – I’d love to see a remastered HD version of Doom. You know, 2D sprites that are wonderfully designed in HD. And since this is not going to happen anytime soon, I can at least satisfy my need for some Doom ‘OldSchool’ HD with this video. YouTube’s member ‘TJ Townsend’ has recreated a scene from Doom. The final image spans across 7 PSD files at a resolution of 9600×7211 pixels, and this project took him 35 hours to complete over the course of 8 days. " (Doom, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

I think I'd be brought to climax if this ever happened.

same here. Would kill for a remastered HD version of Doom
LightofDarkness  +   616d ago
I've been hoping for years. I'd like to think Doom 4 will satisfy my Doom lust, but I really have my doubts after Rage (and even Doom 3).
Tsar4ever  +   616d ago
Sorry, It'll NEVER happen again. Some of the key developers at id had left or been fired for some reason or another long ago. Just J. Carmack and a few other are left but these few are mostly micro managers and had little input to the end creation of classic doom. This is why Doom 3 turned out the way it did. Not to say it was crap. Just not CLASSIC DOOM. And also this is why I have very little hope for the upcoming DOOM 4.

So as of now I'll just settle for SGtMarkIV "BRUTAL DOOM" mod v0.17 with zdhdt/HD textures & HD sprites v.03. This is my remastered DOOM HD, or as close it I'm ever going to experience.

And oh yeah, Nice HD rendered pic though.

impressed

hats off
Merrill  +   616d ago
How many hats do you wear at one time?
RioKing  +   616d ago
It technically should be "hat's off" meaning hat is off...not multiple "hats".
young7yang  +   616d ago
Have you ever read bartholomew cubbins and the 500 hats.

And that is why games cost $60. very impresive!
IaMs12  +   616d ago
When they put into work like that and actually deliver, yup they should. There has been many great games this gen that devs deserve that price point but the majority fall short, unpolished and unfinished games pushed out the door to make a quick buck. I do understand that not every dev could produce Uncharted or BF3 quality, but when they promise or over hype it that its the next best thing, it gets a little out of hand.

Sweet!

Please give whoever made this a team, I want to play the game.

That was insane. I've never seen anything like that.
Hellsvacancy  +   616d ago
It was pretty incredible, it literally shows you how much effort goes into these kinda things
whamlollypop7  +   616d ago
Wow the art style you used was great. You have skill and passion good for you.
dee-ecks  +   616d ago
Yeah, I'll buy that!!!!
Tokyo_reject  +   616d ago
WAS THAT RANDY??? lol!!!!
Soldierone  +   616d ago
There are also people that have re done the entire first game in the Doom 3 engine. Since the enemies are stronger in Doom 3, it felt a little broken, but it was done none the less.

I think this looks cooler though
koehler83  +   616d ago
That was some of the best photoshop work I've ever seen.
LukeTVNow  +   616d ago
And some folks still say games aren't art...
NintendoLegend  +   616d ago
I like how this shows that the original developers basically decided that they did not need to render a ceiling...
Statix  +   616d ago
DOOM 64 was freaking awesome--one of the better N64 exclusives. Old-school DOOM gameplay, but better graphics, more atmosphere, and a tense ambient soundtrack.
Timesplitter14  +   616d ago
making animated sprites with this level of quality would be nearly impossible, unless the animation sticks to 3-4 frames
Statix  +   616d ago
Nothing is impossible, considering that much of animation nowadays are headed towards Flash-based animation, using morphing and skeleton techniques, in lieu of the traditional "hand paint every frame" cel-based animation of days past. The latter being extremely time-consuming.

Maybe not sprites and assets created 4K resolution, but sprites that look this good but designed for 480p could be possible.

looks bad ass
IaMs12  +   616d ago
Awesome job! If you really wanted to, you could retexture all of DooM with that type of art work. Would be incredible but just seeing how much work just went into this one picture, i wouldn't blame someone for not wanting to.
ninjahunter  +   616d ago
lol, and thats how you make one frame haha.
claud3  +   615d ago
awesome
tronjohn  +   615d ago
