Hey everyone!

The National Videogame Museum WAD is now officially released!
This WAD is a near 1:1 recreation of the National Videogame Museum located in Frisco, Texas!

NVMDoom v1.1

A little back story...

My name is Chris, and I'm co-owner of the video game studio DevHour Games, as well as the tour guide for the National Videogame Museum.

I started working with the museum within a few months of their opening in 2016, and they have become an extremely influential part of my life.

One day, one of the owners, asked if I could recreate the entirety of the museum within the Doom engine for use in one of their exhibits. How could I say no?

After over a year of tinkering in my off time, version 1.0 is finally complete, and available for download!


  • MapMaker: GZDoomBuilder
  • Ports: Tested in GZDoom & ZDoom. Had some issues in Brutal Doom that I'm trying to iron out.
  • IWAD: DOOM 2
    • Note: For those of you who played the Beta version of NVMDoom, please note that the Release version has been converted to Doom 2. A LOT has been changed!
  • Maps/Content: MAP01 + 2 Secret Maps (The secret maps were added per request of the owners of the NVM)
  • Settings: NVMDoom is meant to be played with vanilla settings, but will work fine with Free Look & Jump enabled.
  • Gameplay/Difficulty: Tourism Mode contains No Enemies on MAP 01 so you can enjoy the sights. The other 3 Difficulties are akin to normal Doom 2 difficulties.
