The Freedoom project aims to create a complete free content first person shooter game.

NOTE: this is the IWAD Game DATA ... you still need another program (Several to choose from - all free) to Play it AS a Game!

What is Freedoom?

A free FPS action game

The Freedoom project aims to create a complete free content first person shooter game. But Freedoom by itself is just the raw material for a game: it must be paired with a compatible game engine to be played. The download page lists some recommended ones.

id Software released the source code to their classic game, Doom, under the GNU General Public License. This means that the program code that powers Doom is free; Freedoom complements this with free levels, artwork, sound effects and music to make a completely free game.

Freedoom is actually three games in one, consisting of two single player campaigns and one set of levels intended for multiplayer deathmatch (FreeDM).

A compatible free replacement
There is a massive decades-long back catalog containing thousands of Doom levels and other “mods” made by fans of the original game. Freedoom aims to be compatible with these and allows most to be played without the need to use non-free software. The video to the right shows a Doom mod running under Freedoom.

Just as the GNU project was started to develop a free operating system to replace Unix, we aim to provide a free replacement for Doom. If you have artistic skills (visual, musical, or maybe you just like making levels!) then you can help us achieve that aim by contributing to the project!

Game data

Freedoom is available in two versions, the first of which is a single-player focused game, split in two parts, each of which is compatible with different versions of the classic Doom franchise from id Software. The second is a multiplayer-focused experience for the popular “deathmatch” game mode.


Freedoom: Phase 1+2
Phase 1 is the first part of the single-player game, containing four chapters which are nine levels each, smoothly paced for beginner players. It is compatible with mods for the original Doom and The Ultimate Doom.

Phase 2 is the second major part of the single-player game, a massive 32-level chapter expanding upon the same concepts present in Phase 1, as well as containing additional monsters and the double-barreled shotgun! The levels in this game tend to demand more skillful play than the previous chapters. It is compatible with mods for Doom II.


FreeDM
FreeDM is a fast-paced competitive deathmatch game, part of the Freedoom project. Rather than the usual single-player focused levels, these contain no monsters and are intended for deathmatch only. It is compatible with mods for Doom II.



Engine

Freedoom requires the additional download of a game engine to play. The following engines are highly recommended by the Freedoom project:

GZDoom
   GZDoom is an advanced engine, with many features and extremely high compatibility with the majority of mods released for Doom and Freedoom.


Crispy Doom
Crispy Doom is a minimalist engine, adding few extra features to the engine while maintaining an old school feel.


These engines, and many others, are made possible thanks to the Doom engine being released as free software in 1997.
