MyHouse.wad is a map created for Doom II purportedly based on the house of a man named Thomas Allord, who died shortly before it was released by Tom's friend in March 2023. The map begins as a seemingly normal recreation of a house but becomes increasingly absurd and horrific as the player explores, including abnormal demon enemies, eerie music, looping and maze-like rooms and changes to the house layout and a battle with Shrek. The map, inspired by the book House of Leaves, includes multiple endings and additional files within the download folder, including journal entries, sketches and photos of the real-life house the map is based on that expand on the lore behind its creation, making the map double as a creepypasta. The map gained a large following in the months after its release, inspiring fan art and content, as well as videos exploring it.


On September 3rd, 2022, DoomWorld[1] user Veddge made a comment on a thread sharing screenshots of a map his friend Tom, who he claims recently died, created. According to Veddge, the map is based on his house. It used to be a popular trend online to recreate your house in Doom.

On March 3rd, 2023, DoomWorld[2] user Veddge made a post titled "MyHouse," where he shares a Google Drive[3] link including the files for the Doom II map purportedly based on his friend Tom's house. In the post, he again explains that Tom died recently and he connected with Tom's parents, who shared some of his old belongings with him, including a floppy disc with the MyHouse files. Allegedly, Tom made the map around 15 years ago and Veddge cleaned it up and released it as a tribute to his friend (read below).

Excited to finally release this tribute map. Last August I lost a good childhood friend of mine and took it pretty hard. When I was visiting my hometown for his funeral, I connected with his parents who shared with me some of his old belongings. Among them was a copy of an old map of his backed up on a 3.5” floppy from high school. Thomas and I were into amateur Doom mapping in the early 00s but I had never seen this map of his prior to uncovering it on one of the old floppy discs. As a way of paying tribute to him and all the great memories we had together, I took the plunge and installed Doom Builder in order to polish up his map and add a few modern amenities just for convenience sake.

I haven’t touched an editor in over 15 years so it was quite a surprise to find out how easy mapping has become. I may have gotten a little carried away with these new UDMF features and, as such, the map is designed for GZDoom.

The Google Drive folder also includes sub-folders for some of Tom's sketchbook pages, photos of the house the map is based on, an obituary for Tom and a journal documenting Veddge's process of cleaning up and finishing the map spanning from August 2022 to March 2023. The journal documents Veddge's increasing obsession with cleaning up the game, an increase in nightmares as he works on it and how his life is being negatively affected by the game, including a mysterious car crash and claims that he can "no longer tell what elements of the map are his" (examples shown below).

He then moved to Wyoming and spent several years working for the National Park Service before reconnecting with his highschool crush and moving back to Illinois to be with them. Tom and his partner moved to Oswego where he started working for the city as part of the grounds crew. Tom was loved by everyone who knew him and his smile and laugh was said to be infectious. He will be missed and deeply remembered by everyone in his life.

I can no longer tell what elements of this map are my friend’s, which are mine… and what the map has created. I am no longer afraid that the map is creating itself. It needs me as much as I need it. Which reminds me of a dream I had the other night. I’m not sleeping much, but I recall

this one with surprising clarity. I was standing on a beach staring out at the placid water, the ocean stretching out as far as the eye could see. Seagulls cawed overhead and the gentle caress of water lapped the sand in front of me. I dipped my toes into the water. At least I tried. There was no water. No ocean. It was an illusion. I realized everything around me was fake.

For those who read comments before reading the article, PLEASE play this wad before you do anything, you will not regret it, and don't read the rest of this comment.

This shit's hella deep, I'm still unsure If we've found every last secret in this. I wish there were more things like this for different engines.
