Doom 3 – first-person shooter video game

Doom 3 is a science fiction, survival horror, first-person shooter video game with impressive graphics.

Doom 3 is set in the year 2145 in a fictional Union Aerospace Corporation (UAC) research center on Mars. The player takes control of a UAC security replacement marine as he fights to survive a mysterious invasion of inter-dimensional demons. In the process, the marine learns more about the nature of the shadowy research being conducted within the massive base, as well as information on its main instigator, Dr. Malcolm Betruger.

The main objective of Doom 3 is to navigate through the hostile game environment to an area of safety at the end of each level. It favours a ‘run and gun’ strategy, requiring the player to essentially shoot anything that moves.

  • Numerous weapons.
  • Realistic lighting.
  • Multiplayer with 3 power-ups:
    • Beserk.
    • Mega Health.
    • Invisibility.

  • Built-in editors sharing the same renderer pipeline as the game.
  • Strong and flexible scripting language.
  • Material shaders with bump- and specularity-map support.
