Thread: Doom's dimensional shambler

  1. #1

    Default Doom's dimensional shambler

    I'm playing right now the original Doom (with Doom Legacy, to enhance it to 1024x768 and OpenGL :-)), and while exiting, I came across a message with a ominous dimensional shambler... In fact, I originally stumbled over it nearly 9 years ago (while playing Doom in our living room):



    Does anyone know what a shambler is?

    Erm...

    Shamble: To walk in an awkward, lazy, or unsteady manner, shuffling the feet.

    Thus, a shambler would cause you to walk in an awkward, lazy, or unsteady manner, shuffling your feet.

    Thusly, a "Dimensional Shambler" would cause you to shamble through dimensions, in an awkward, lazy, or unsteady manner, shuffling your feet all the while.

    I take it you don't want to shamble through dimensions, because if Doom taught us anything, it was that the only other dimensions out there are...

    1. Hell
    2. UnderHell
    and...*dramatic pause*...
    3. You Don't Want To Know...

    Of course, this is all speculative. It could just be that an original Doom programmer was on acid at the time.
