InstaDoom Mod Adds Selfie Stick And Filters

I feel a bit guilty for mostly posting Doom mods that are a bit wacky when so many fab mods and levels are still coming out. Well. Here, I’ll tell you to play the excellent Demonsteele and then I’ll feel less guilty posting about a Doom mod which adds a selfie stick and Instagram colour filters.

The first version of InstaDoom launched over the weekend, and I’m sure you’ll be rushing into hell to start snapping away, so here, I have a video with a few tips for you:

Yep, it really does add selfies. The selfie stick replaces the BFG but you’ll find it wherever you’d find a chainsaw, or you could simply cheat to get one. And it recreates 37 Instagram photo filters, which you can also use without the selfie stick to make Doom look so very artistic.

You can download InstaDoom over here. I’d recommend playing with ZDoom, but that’s personal preference. How to load Doom mods might not be common knowledge nowadays, so e.g. to use the selfie mod with the Helena filter you’d use the command: zdoom.exe -file selfie.wad helena.wad

It’s made by Linguica with help from Mike12. It has custom music too, but I replaced it in the video with the recorded-off-a-nice-soundcard version of the E1M1 theme off Doomworld. Discovering the music can be an extra little treat for you.

    Ahhh! Selfies! The great communicator!

    Now if only Doomguy’s face in the selfies got all bloodied up like in the little face thingy.

    When I was making the mod I was hoping for a writeup on RPS :) Excellent work on the video. Do you mind if I embed it in the forum thread?

      Oh, please do!

      Honestly, when I first saw InstaDoom, I half-suspected those screenshots were faked to bait games sites/me.

    • Geebs says:

      Is there any way you could incorporate a 10% chance of an Imp walking up and shoving the selfie-stick right up DoomGuy’s nose each time you take a photo?

    That “professional” voiceover is glorious <3

    With this and SPOOKY SIMULATOR we truly are living in the selfie renaissance of games.

    With the amount of articles on RPS about mods for old games, I’m beginning to get delusions of grandeur, since I’ve made a mod myself based on The Witcher 1 called The Weird World of The Witcher. It’s not all it can be yet (it’s my first mod after all), so I’ll work on it some more and then maybe, maybe I’ll dare to bother RPS about it :P.

    Any day with an Alice video is a fine day indeed.

    I still think a ‘selfie’ is something that you do in private.

    • MisterMumbles says:

      Until someone “hacks” your account and it’s all over the internet. So much for privacy. =P

      • deadpan says:

        Yeah, Doomguy’s career’s been a real mess ever since those nudes leaked.

    One of those brilliantly simple “why didn’t I think of that” ideas. I have a basic understanding that it’s a weapon replacement pwad, but I must say I’m still slightly disappointed it doesn’t change the camera angle and actually look back at the “player”.
