You Can Run Doom On A Tractor Now

If you happen to own a John Deere tractor and are an avid gamer, well we have good news for you. Your farming equipment is capable of running one of the most iconic first-person shooters.

Security researcher Sick Codes, alongside modder Skelegant, managed to get the game Doom running on a John Deere tractor display at the Def Con hacking conference in Las Vegas.

Sick Codes shared a video on Twitter showcasing the game in action, which fittingly takes place in a corn field and has the player mow down enemies with a tractor. They also said that the process took months, as it involved jailbreaking the Linux used by the tractor.

I am honestly baffled by how people can run games on machines that aren’t meant to run games in the first place. I will just assume that it's black magic witchcraft and call it a day.
