They managed to make Doom run on a LEGO brick and in the BIOS of a motherboard

id Software’s game continues its journey of being adapted for everything possible

One of the most influential games of all time, the first Doom is known to have been adapted for several unusual platforms. After running on a USB Bluetooth adapter and a dial phone, now the game showed that it can be run even on a LEGO brick.

The person responsible for this was James Brown, who created a small controller he developed to transform a part of the toy into a small monitor. Images are generated from small controllable OLEDswhich had previously been used by Brown to mimic text scrolling across the display.

In practice, the LEGO piece used is not responsible for running the game, serving as a kind of small external monitor. Nonetheless, Brown seems determined to further explore the format and, on his Twitter profile, he has already shown the possibility of using the upper part of the piece as a touch-sensitive controller.

Game can now run in your motherboard BIOS

Who also decided to play with the original Doom was the community dedicated to Coreboot, which showed that it is possible to run the game from the BIOS of a motherboard. The system was created as a way to replace the component’s proprietary firmware with a lightweight solution that performs as few tasks as possible for modern 32-bit and 64-bit systems.

Known as CoreDOOM, the adaptation transforms any modern computer into a machine exclusively dedicated to the id Software classic. The complete game is now located in the system ROM, which means that there is no way to use the firmware to perform any other task.

– Continues after advertising –

What makes Doom such a popular game among the unofficial port community is the fact that your code has been openly available for many years. The game’s adaptations have already become a kind of meme and a challenge considered fun, which has already yielded versions for pregnancy tests, for Twitter and for refrigeratorsamong many other means.
