Decorate your dorm room, man cave, or even the dining room (you devil, you) with our limited edition DOOM poster and & giclee.
On the left you’ll see our new high-quality giclee print, “Echoes in the Darkness” from artist WAY$HAK — featuring one of DOOM’s iconic baddies, the Cyberdemon. And on the right you’ll see Godmachines’ tribute to DOOM II’s final boss, the “Icon of Sin“.
Both 18×24 prints are limited to 333 individually-numbered prints. No clue why they’d be numbered that way

Yesterday the highly-anticipated exhibit, The Art of Videogames, opened at The Smithsonian’s American Art Museum. The exhibit features games like the original Fallout, Fallout 3, and id Software’s DOOM II on display — all voted in by members of the community.
If you’re planning on visiting Washington, DC between now and September 30th, you should definitely check out the exhibit. With the Cherry Blossoms near full bloom, I’ll soon be heading down to the National Mall to check it out and take some pics.
Beginning March 16, visitors to the Smithsonian American Art Museum in DC will be able to check out The Art of Video Games — featuring Fallout 3 & DOOM II!
Before the exhibit begins, the Smithsonian Institute is seeking photographs and artwork that show how games can inspire creativity. If you’ve got something Fallout or DOOM-related (or any game for that matter), be sure to upload it to the newly-created Art of Video Games Flickr page.
Good news for German gamers! Following an appeal to the German ratings board, both DOOM and DOOM II have been de-listed and now carry a “16+” rating.
While we work to make both DOOMs available widely there, we’re also set to release an entirely uncut version of id Software’s RAGE to German stores. Look for it on October 7!
Congrats to DOOM II and Fallout 3 on being voted into next year’s exhibit, The Art of Video Games. The exhibition will be on display at the Smithsonian American Art Museum from March 16, 2012 through September 30, 2012.
