OMDO – 3D DOOM With A ‘Very Slight’ Catch

OMDO – 3D DOOM With A ‘Very Slight’ Catch

My love for the original DOOM is no great secret. It’s one of the earliest PC games I remember playing as a child and along with X-Com: UFO Defense it’s one of the first games to be installed on any new PC I buy. However, whilst I’m content enough to enjoy the classic graphical stylings of Carmack’s original masterpiece, for those looking for something a little more contemporary, there’s OMDO.

It’s Crunch Time

It’s Crunch Time

No, I don’t care.

I don’t care that it’s nothing more than a glorified cutscene with minimal interactivity and no objective to speak of. I also don’t care that you can barely call it a game. I do however care that somebody has taken one of the finest sequences of one of my favourite childhood movies and made it into a Unity game.

John Carpenter Meets Jalopy

John Carpenter Meets Jalopy

Here at the Reticule, we’re big fans of driving games. Some of us are better at them than others, even going so far as to own their own crazy vehicular paraphernalia like steering wheels and pedals. Others, like me prefer to spend their time playing more sedate games that involve sneaking around, running away from things and hiding in vents.

Well good news, because now you can drive around and run away from things at the same time.

Ahem, I’m Terribly Sorry, But Would You Mind Moving A Bit?

Despite the fact that I can only play horror games in ten minute sessions before having to finding a soft kitten to squeeze, nevertheless I’ve always been a fan of them.  Not just the triple A high production ones either – every few weeks I’ll delve into the depths of Itch.io  to see what recycled assets have been cobbled together in Unity to make me jump.

Early Ninja – Unquestionably A Good Thing. Without A Shadow Of A Doubt. No Alternative Facts Here.

The biggest problem faced by Early Access indie developers in 2017 is money. Weighed down by the heavy burden of having vast amounts of expendable cash, many indie developers are forced to slow and in some cases even stop the development of their games altogether.

Well It’s About Time!

Well It’s About Time!

I love mods. Always have, always will. I get so happy when people take amazing games and make them even better, whether it’s new characters, new locations or complete overhauls I just can’t get enough of them  Modding is the very reason that I love the PC so much, despite the fact that it’s also the reason I have to re-install my games every few weeks after completely breaking them.

This week though, I’ve found something amazing. Something so completely fantastic you’ll never play Fallout 4 without it.
