Some of you may be lucky enough to receive a new fancy robot vacuum. It turns out to be more useful than you think: in addition to cleaning your home, it can clear the surroundings and produce a Doom level for your home! Just the right thing to ring in the New Year: hell on earth.
It's not official Robot Advantage, unfortunately, but instead Hack was put together by veteran game engineer Rich Whitehouse. Note that the Roombas was in fact combining some detailed environmental data with their sensors, and naturally felt this ability should be applied to A 25-year-old video game.
By combining Doom and Roomba, Whitehouse realized that he would not only be able to do something fun, but "unleash a truly terrible knot to infect humanity."
It works like this, although if you do not have Roomba 980, there's no guarantee it will work at all: using a special tool, your computer will discover Roomba on your wireless network and begin tracking its movements and data collection. When a small robot does its work, the data is saved in a file, which you can then convert to Doom wad via DOOMBA, an extension of Whitehouse Image Noesis / Application conversion model.
The level shape will be taken from your place, but of course things may look a bit different. More monsters, probably. It depends on the random distribution settings you choose, which control the weapons, ideas and other features that appear in this hellish new version of your home.
All for free, except Doom and Roomba, so if you have both, get them. Thanks for Rich for this fun holiday distractio.
