Happy Birthday, DOOM

Just before midnight on December 09, 1993 the shareware version of DOOM was uploaded to ftp servers and the Software Creations BBS "sysop" nodes for release the following day.

My BBS, Cybernautics, was the one of the first in Alabama to have the game available for download.

To all of you who, like me, wasted thousands of hours in deathmatches, alienated bosses and clients, annoyed wives and mothers:

IDKFA, Baby!



Microsoft Windows NT almost killed DOOM, but a 32-bit Windows port called ZDoom was released and can still be downloaded here.
