Did You Know? Kill-o-bytes

After 25 years, a series like DOOM is guaranteed to collect its share of fun facts and interesting trivia. Thankfully, you don’t have to be the world’s most dedicated fan or a development insider to learn some of the coolest stuff about this franchise – you have us!

DID YOU KNOW:

The spreadsheet used to schedule Year of DOOM stories is 66.6KB

It’s crucial to stay organized when working on a project like the Year of DOOM. Like the nerds we are, that means one thing: spreadsheets!! For the Slayers Club, we use a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet to track the articles we’re working on, when they publish, how far along they are in the pipeline and…oh, you’re falling asleep, aren’t you?

Fine, what is interesting about the document is the file size. It’s an…auspicious number.
