Someone rebuilt Doom’s E1M1 map in No Man’s Sky

You can get 1993’s original Doom to run on just about anything these days: one enterprising player has gotten the game to work on a McDonald’s cash register, for instance. But now someone has gotten Doom running in No Man’s Sky, and it’s a place you can go right now.

YouTuber and game developer JP LeBreton has built classic Doom’s first level on a remote planet in Hello Games’ massive universe, and – thanks to the Beyond update – you can visit the planet and try the level. It’s about as close as you can get to the E1M1 ‘Hangar’ map as you can get using No Man’s Sky’s suite of construction tools, and while concessions obviously had to be made due to the fact that demons aren’t invading, it’s an impressively faithful piece of work.

LeBreton’s version of Hangar is a base constructed on an irradiated red planet that he’s claimed and named Phobos, the Martian moon where Doom opens. As shown in the video below, there’s a series of glyphs that you can use at an in-game portal to teleport there. Once you’ve arrived, hop in your ship and fly to the marker he’s set near the base.
