About This File

You are the caretaker of a public library in a marginal suburb. An hour has passed since you closed the building for today, but you remember that you have left open the gas key of the toilet's water (!!). Praying for not having provoked a major fire, you run back to your jobplace and enter in time to close the gas key before any catastrophe could happen. You know you have done well because the electric installation is failing, but, why? You had turn off all the installation except for the alarm an hour ago. Who have turned on and broken it? You swallow saliva and walk to the iron gate hoping those rumors about "satanist skinheads" in this town were fake. Shit! In the hurry you have broken the key of the iron gate, and it's closed again by it's own weight. Your only way for getting out of here is to jump from the study room's window, broken recently by a hooligan, and fall safely (you hope) into the trash container below. You remember having hidden the blue keys of the study room in the electric installation room, but they aren't. "Satanic skinheads", you think, as you hear some steps in the distance. You take out your gun (it's a dangerous marginal suburb, after all), and you prepare yourself for wathever may come between you and the study room...

This single player one-level .WAD uses mainly wooden and brick/rock textures. There are few items but also few enemies (I think it's an easy map for the usual DooM player, except for the red key area :) ). I tried to make a "realist" level emphatising the library theme. I hope you like it.

The only "trick" used in this wad is the "sky window".

And sorry for any bad english. I'm not anglo-speaking :) .

The library looks convincing. Getting the yellow key is harder than should be, and equals to revealing a secret. --- 3/5

A nice little nightmare. I wish *my* public library was equipped with firearms, body armor, and a chainsaw.

This is a quite large library on several flats, but with very few monsters only. So there's more running around than fighting, which makes the whole map a bit boring. As it doesn't look very special neither, I suggest you download something different. 1.5/5 -Milian

      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.
