I was captivated not so much by the action in computer games as by the new kind of space that had presented itself to me, a boundless new place to explore with a different (and mutable) set of rules. Computer games and the internet became an extension of the natural world.

— James Willard Pierce

In 1993, when DOOM was released, Pierce managed to get his hands on a copy and was hooked. Come celebrate a new dimension of space, and share a communal encounter with the tradition of the medium — the LAN Party.
