Just started a small new project: a bare bones IWAD (main resource file) for making standalone games with GZDoom. This makes it so you can build something with GZDoom - probably the most advanced, feature-rich, quickly evolving Doom port - without needing to own any of the Doom games, or be beholden to Doom's genre or design.
More info in the TODO list:
This is extremely cool, thank you for doing this!
I assume it's possible to bundle the resulting wad with gzdoom so we can ship "unzip and double-click exe" finished games?
@emptyfortress that's definitely the goal, i think a tiny change on the GZDoom source side would be required to get it to recognize minimal.ipk3 as an out-of-the-box-supported IWAD, once i'm certain of the soundness of this approach (and have chosen a final name) i was going to discuss it with GZDoom's devs.
Server run by the main developers of the project It is not focused on any particular niche interest - everyone is welcome as long as you follow our code of conduct!
