About This File

You watch as the rats fight each other over your latest meal of scraps, viciously battling for survival. You fought like that once.

Such a desperate battle was fought (and won) by you 12 years ago: when the UAC, nowadays the largest company in existence, experimented with interdimensional travel. An experiment that went wrong, sending you to hell and back before ridding earth of the evil invading force that had held it captive.

You watch as one of the rats slices throught the other's throat with it's teeth, before hobbling off with it's victory prize.

(Victory)

You acheived a victory over hell itself!

(Prize)

You look around the dank, almost gothic cell you have been thrown into. A cell that resides in the highest security wing of the deepest, darkest level of Romerack prison camp. Situated in the middle of nowhere, no-one has ever gotten past Romerack's brutal security measures.

Gurgling blood from it's mouth and throat, the wounded rat staggers up.....

It all happened when things had returned to normal, about nine years ago. The UAC was trying to pull itself together and rise from the rubble Hell had made of it. Then, unbelievably, they began experimenting again, claiming they "Knew what went wrong last time". The experiments were kept top secret by the UAC, and told only to a precious few.

( .....It NEEDS food........)

You were one of them.

(.....for the children it carries.......)

The moment you found out you became furious! Damned if they were going to try that again! You decided to make sure everyone was aware of what was going on.

( .......It can feel them dying.....)

So now you're here. A "security risk". You watch as the wounded rat struggles to return to it's hole, gurgles and dies. You watch closely, as a movement within the rat suggests it's corpse is going into labour......

You know it's going to happen again! You have to break out of here! You remember on your way in, of hearing mention of an underground waste system leading to the main medium security wing. You could escape from there for sure! It won't be easy, the prisoners will be shot if they don't try and stop you, the guards are fierce, and of course, the gates have been running for nine years......

Still, buck up marine, you've faced those odds before. For some reason, all prisoners have armaments, just the guards' little jokes. You see, no one escapes Romerack.....

3 short maps that aren't bad if you can overlook the texture alignment. Make sure to find the RL secret on MAP01, it'll help get through some tight spots. ***

      It definitely makes Doom look darker, but also slightly changes colors (it reminds me PSX Doom). I prefer original Doom colors and miss how it looked on CRT (almost same colors as with modern monitors, but less brightness and maybe more contrast).

      Great spirit/item placements, and also nice trap placements. Textures are georgeous and scream "1980's sci-fi action movie".

      Some very cool techbases with a nice texture set and pallette.  The music is pretty epic.  And it all runs in vanilla! (Or so it is said, I played it in GZDoom)

      I honestly can't believe that this whole megawad is 100% vanilla compatible and its only the first of THREE episodic megawads! Esselfortium and her team of creative energetic mappers has done an amazing job from the unique texture set, the music, the maps & even the tweaked color palette that fits the mood of the whole thing.    100% highly recommended! 5/5

      A pretty straightforward map to run through, packing in tons of enemies in rooms both big and small. Most of the monsters you'll be killing are E1 monsters such as Zombiemen and Imps, so while there isn't much in monster variety, there are plenty of ways to get them to fight each other which I like. It might be better to try and get as many monsters to start attacking at the same time since once you get the Chaingun, not even the groups of Spectres are much of a threat. Overall though, the map is still fun to blast through if you just want to kill tons of monsters in packs.
