Unusual ways to run the Doom game continue to be born. One of the SpritesMods enthusiasts created and 3D-printed a vintage Christmas tree toy capable of running the legendary 1993 shooter.
The tiny toy looks like a beige IBM PC from the 1980s and features an ESP32-C2-Wrover-02 microcontroller as well as an I2S audio amplifier and a small speaker for music, a tiny lithium-ion battery, and a USB charging port. The speaker is small but quite capable of providing music during the game.
To control the game, you can connect a Bluetooth keyboard and a wireless mouse or a game controller – if you can see something on the 0.96-inch LCD display.
Naturally, there is not enough memory to run a full version of Doom, so the enthusiast used the GBA Doom Port – is a special version of the game, optimized for gadgets with little memory.
The model of the toy can be found on GitHub. The author talked about the development in detail here.
