Both id Software’s Wolfenstein 3D and Doom were landmark achievements in 3D videogame design, truly putting players in the body of their virtual protagonist for the first time. It’s fitting that id’s John Carmack is currently continuing the journey he started decades ago at Oculus, then, but fans of these original games are also updating them to support VR too.
Last month the ongoing Doom VR mod saw an update that added support for one of the lesser-known games built using id’s engine, Heretic. Originally developed by Raven Software, Heretic trades massive guns and monsters for sorceries and, well, more monsters. It’s a little bit of a trip to get the game running in VR (full details are here), but if you do you can play through the entire original game using motion controls. What a time to be alive, eh?
