The Freedoom project aims to create a complete Doom-based game which is Free Software.
Combined with a free source port, people will also be able to play the back catalog of extensions made to Doom by hobbyists over the last 15 years.
id Software has released the source code to their classic game, Doom, under the GNU General Public License. This means that the engine which powers Doom is Free Software. However, the game engine is only one component of a complete game.
The Doom engine uses an "IWAD" file to store all of its game data. This contains the raw data used by the game вЂ” the artwork, sound effects, levels, everything which defines Doom as a game. Until now, one of the original proprietary files was still needed in order to play Doom.
What's New in This Release:В· Plenty of new materials
System Requirements:В· A modern source port is needed to play Freedoom.
Program Release Status: Minor Update
Program Install Support: Install and Uninstall
