Cryptozoic Entertainment has released details on its version of The Doom That Came to Atlantic City. Doom skyrocketed in notoriety last month when its original publisher, The Forking Path Co., revealed that it would not produce the game despite successfully funding it with Kickstarter campaign that raised over $120,000 from backers.
