‘MythBusters’ to Tackle the Classic Video Game Franchise ‘Doom’

Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman of MythBusters are set to tackle the classic video game franchise Doom on a special video games-themed episode of the show. Tim Willits of id Software, the developer behind the franchise, will also be helping the duo explore questions as well as creating a level of Doom in real life.

In this special episode dedicated to the hobby near and dear to our hearts, we’re excited that id Software’s own Tim Willits will be helping Adam and Jamie dig into an often-discussed topic of FPS games: Is it really possible for someone to carry all those health packs, guns, and even a chainsaw? Using the DOOM universe and DOOM 3 BFG Edition for reference, Tim helps the team recreate a DOOM level in real life.

The episode is scheduled to air on Saturday, January 31, 2015 at 9 PM ET.
