Woo hoo! It’s the 17th April and this means that it’s time to remake the same picture that I’ve remade every year since I decided to start practicing art daily. You can see previous versions of the picture here: 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 & 2017.
It’s strange to think that a silly little cartoon I drew six years ago about the well-known joke that pretty much anything will run “Doom” turned into such a major life-shaping moment for me.
And, in keeping with the theme, this year’s cartoon is a topical comic about how some really cool-looking modern “Doom II” WADs (especially those designed to use “GZ Doom”) have system requirements that are way too high! Seriously, the whole point of classic “Doom” is that it’s meant to be able to run on anything! It’s meant to be free from the exclusionary “must have the absolutely latest tech” BS that plagues modern triple-A gaming. But, well, I could ramble for ages about this. So, here’s the latest version of the picture. Enjoy 🙂
