Hmmm...
To do:
Prerelease page. Also, does the debug parameter do anything?

For its time, Magic Carpet had a fairly advanced engine, able to do water reflections and fairly well detailed models. However, the initially confusing gameplay and the constant attention that Doom got meant the game wasn't able to sell as many copies as was hoped.

Level Select

Entering carpet -level x, with x being a number between 1 and 50, allows the player to go to any level in a game.

Undocumented Parameter

carpet -debug can be entered in the command prompt. However, no apparent effects are seen.

Release Date Text

This likely was intended to be used for press purposes. It can be seen at 8FE74.
