Terminal Doom is a mod that lets you play Doom 1 shareware on a computer inside Doom 3. Obviously.
This is done by refactoring the entire Doom engine into a single class, which renders out the screen to a Doom 3 terminal. Or something.
This was done as a proof-of-concept for how far Doom 3’s interactive-surfaces system can be taken, and also probably because it’s pretty funny.
