Enthusiast adds microtransactions to DOOM — QR codes direct to payment UI every time you pick up an item

A hardware and software enthusiast, who admits he likes a little nonsense, has added microtransactions to DOOM. With Guy Dupont’s DOOM modevery time you pick up an item in the game a fee needs to be paid via a QR code.

In Dupont’s Tweet/X post, embedded above, you can read his thoughts about the tech world’s obsession with running DOOM on everything, as well as a video demo of how DOOM microtransactions are not too subtly blended into the gameplay. “We need to STOP running DOOM on new things and START putting new things into DOOM” asserted the humorous technophile.
