XGloom – Gloom Deluxe Remake

A guy calling himself ClockworkBytes is working on a remake of Gloom Deluxe, which is an old first person shooter for the Amiga computer.

XGloom is a cross-platform re-implementation of the original Amiga game engine. The aim of the author is to bring Gloom Deluxe to modern systems with a lot of added features, such as improved controls, high-res textures, real 3D sprites and hardware accelerated graphics.

There are currently two videos of his work available on YouTube, but both are from 2010. Hopefully he will show more of his progress in the near future. Here are the videos:

Looks nice, doesn’t it? 🙂 I sure think so. It will be interesting to see what the final result will be like if released.

I’ve still got my old copy of Gloom in my diskette box. Might have a go at this game tomorrow. Got a bit of inspiration after watching the videos!

  1. Very cool, I remember playing Gloom a lot on my A1200. More cartoonish than Doom but equally fun. Good memories 🙂

  2. I’m having second thoughts about this… Is this real? The low resolution of the video doesn’t give much clues and there’s no sign of development anywhere, no website, no sources…

  3. I see. Didn’t looked at the Amigaworld.net. 1 year of inactity seems bad news… The project was great, portability was in mind.
