Description: My 12-level Megawad for Doom 2/Final Doom, and sequel to my previous work, Damnation. Horror-themed but still with plenty of action. Uses .ogg music files for the levels and text screens, as well as ambient sounds throughout the levels. Continues the story of Damnation, with the surviving marine encountering the Thanatos Base on the borders of the system.

Overall difficulty of the Wad is hard, with some difficult encounters in addition to some surprising tricks and traps. Levels are generally large, and average about 10-15 minutes in length each. Uses some monsters/weapons/items from Skulltag.

Requires Zandronum, as well as the additional files in the .zip (cc4-tex.wad, q2tex.wad, IDTEX.wad, skulltag_data.pk3, skulltag_actors.pk3). Read the .rtf file as well if you want to know more about the story and details on the development of the Wad.

pretty good, I guess only reason this isn't more popular is that it demands what is basically viewed as multiplayer source port. maps are great, with great visuals, and lots of exploration. they use bunch of bright AVP2 textures, and they gave this wad's interior environments a very different feel. difficulty is just perfect, gameplay is closer to classic doom - since I was never into modern slaughtermap craze, I think this is a good thing.x
Amazing!!! Story: 5/5 Monsters: 5/5 Level Design: 5/5 Mixed with Brutal Doom: 10/5 lolx
Superbly done!x
Unique and atmospheric levels, great encounters, and a pleasant change of scenery from the usual classic-styled wads these days x
A part of me wants to shake your hand for these expertly built remarkable maps. A part of me wants to deck you for scaring the shit out of me when I opened that door near the end of level 2. 5/5x
