DOOM - Could a "Doom" clone run on a 7MHz Amiga 500 with 1MB of RAM?

We've certainly seen some impressive projects through the years on retro hardware, for example showing how well Sam's Journey and Super Mario performed on a C64 was impressive enough. But now it looks as if we are about to go one step further. As thanks to a heads up from Per Ola, we've been told KK/Altair is working on a project to show that it may be possible to run a Doom clone on just a 7MHz Amiga 500 with 1MB of RAM!

Doom is an FPS game made by id Software and originally released in 1993 for DOS. It was ported the following year for the Jaguar, Linux, PC-98 and the Sega 32X. It was again ported in 1995 for the 3DO and Windows (aka Doom95). In 1996, it was ported for the SNES/Super Nintendo and in 2001, it was ported for the Gameboy Advance. As for the Amiga it was of course never released for this system, but going by the video above, we may be seeing the first demo map of the game being developed and a future release down the line.
