Description

Final DOOM is the last ID-Tech 1 Doom game. It includes two separate 32 level episodes: TNT: Evilution and the Plutonia Experiment.

Neither episode was made by ID Software themselves, but rather by two groups of individuals hired by ID; Team TNT (hence why Evilution has "TNT" in front of it and it's Iwad is named "TNT.wad") and the Casali brothers.

Game play in both is completely identical to Doom2, right down to the level progression (i.e. 30 levels and two secret levels). Other than the new levels, the only new things over Doom2 are new stories (both of which appear to directly follow on from Doom2 rather than each other) some new textures and, in TNT's case a few new music tracks.

Trivia

DOSBox

The Steam download version of the game is listed as Windows 2000/XP/Vista platform because the executables are modified to use a DOSBox variant (v 0.70); additionally the traditional setup.exe is missing.

It is confirmed that neither Valve or id Software contacted the DOSBox project staff and initially the game didn't includes the TXT´s that must be present under the GPL license (so they failed to fulfill 2 points of the GPL license).

Two days after the launch, there was an update that includes COPYING, AUTHORS and THANKS.txt of the DOSBox 0.7

Evilution

Many people were angry about Id's decision to include Evilution in Final DOOM - it was originally going to be released as a freeware expansion onto DOOM II.
