* More information *
"Obsidian" is actually not an episode but one big level that was divided
into three parts as a matter of convenience. I suggest that you play the
three maps without interruption.
If you think this WAD is too easy even in ultra-violence, try to play
Map02 and Map03 starting only with your pistol.
In Map02 it is NOT possible to get more than 99% kills. You'll understand
why when you play.
* The Story *
In the year 2803 the space freighter "Productus" is destroyed on its
maiden flight by an electromagnetic storm. You are left as the only
survivor. After many lonely days in space the lifeboat's food supplies
run low. Finally you reach the nearest planet. The information given by
the on-board computer is poor:
| name: Obsidia Deserta |
| diameter: 9390 km |
| day duration: 14.9 h |
| year duration: 9044.3 h |
| AD 2784 first scientific examination |
| arid |
| lower life-forms |
| atmosphere breathable |
| deposits of an enigmatic black mineral: resembles volcanic glass, |
| but emits heat and visible light, hence called "Hot Obsidian" |
| AD 2785-2786 construction of a mine and a research laboratory |
| technological applications of the material not yet discovered; |
| valuable and much sought-after building material an some |
| aristocratically ruled worlds |
| mining licence since AD 2792 in UAC ownership |
You locate the UAC complex, the only human settlement on this planet, and
input the coordinates to the computer.
As your lifeboat is hovering above the buildings all seems deserted.
Suddenly you notice a movement: an upright walking creature disappearing
hastily into a dark corner. You didn't see it properly, but there is no
doubt: the creature was not human. You feel an unspeakable horror rising
up in you, but you have no choice. You decide to land in a dried-up lake
outside the complex...
