Lunatic is a small side project I've been working on for a few months. The goal was to make a short episode that combined the gameplay of Doom with the upbeat setting, music, and feeling of retro/arcade scrolling shooters, while still remaining faithful to Doom.
I think the resulting project turned out to be Doom with upbeat music and moon themed graphics, but I can live with that :)
Lunatic is compatible with strong limit removing, Boom compatible ports. It has been playtested in PrBoom+, Eternity, and ZDoom. Other ports may work but remain untested. I strongly recommend against using any sort of gameplay or randomizer mod with Lunatic as there is a not insignificant amount of Dehacked work and conflicts may result.
-a custom sound effect in MAP05 is very quiet - if anyone knows how to raise it's volume and save it in a format friendly with all 3 target ports please let me know.
-Doom's way of projecting the sky in a cylinder is not really suited for this type of sky texture, and sometimes you'll see weird stretching if you look closely.
