There have been mods where people recreated Doom maps within Minecraft, but this seems to be the first instance of someone doing the opposite.

p>One of the great things about the gaming industry is the ability to take elements from one franchise and insert it into another, potentially creating something new. There are lots of interesting video game crossovers that have existed in the past, with Smash Bros. being one of the most obvious examples. But there are some titles which are so far apart in terms of the way they play that mashing them together is probably not something that a lot of people would think of. Take the ground-breaking Doom 2 and Minecraft as examples.

When you take the fast-paced shooting mechanics of one and give it the free flow building tools of another, you get "Voxel Violence," a mod for the classic Doom game, which gives players the ability to create structures using blocks. What's even more fascinating about this is it uses assets from Minecraft, so it seemingly blends the two ideas together into one game. With this add-on, it's possible to not only create a mud house using 1x1 blocks of dirt and glass, but it can also be destroyed by firing rockets at stacks of TNT.

A recent video shows the mod in action, demonstrating the reality of being able to build in the influential FPS. While there have been mods that bring Doom levels into the world of Minecraft, QwertyKing7's project may be the first time that someone has managed to do it the other way round. Essentially, "Voxel Violence" makes it possible to edit Doom maps on the fly, admittedly in a very rudimentary fashion, with the creator urging people to make their own community maps. The only downside is there don't appear to be any instructions on how to install it, although seasoned mod users should be able to figure it out.

It's encouraging to see that such a beloved game is still getting a lot of attention almost 30 years after being released. With id Software's original title being one of the most innovative and influential FPS games of the 1990s, if not of all time, it's hardly surprising that there is still a strong modding community dedicated to tinkering with the vanilla format.

Mojang's sandbox title is also no stranger to fans toying with the original. With someone creating their own version of Wordle in Minecraft, it seems evident that both games are ripe for new and transgressive ideas that the official studios may never have thought of.

The original Doom was released in December 1993 for multiple platforms and has been ported to many systems over the years.
