About This File

A sequel to the first Island, again, a tropical forest, but this time with a much larger indoor area. Plus it runs faster.

Credits

id software those whos textures and sounds I used (see note)

Base

New from scratch

Build Time

A few months

Editors Used

Deepsea, Paint, Wally, DoomBuilder

Bugs

There is a couple, I don't know how to fix one, and the other requires special circumstances. (You can see above and below a fake floor at the same time, which causes a visual error, but does not effect gameplay.)

This is absolutely a ZDoom classic along with its predecessor!

      The Sky May Be gets called the worst WAD ever, while this is feted with awards... What the hell's wrong with this community!?   Kidding.   After so many years of refinement and improvement in editors' skills, a lot of Doom maps are so exquisitely crafted that it's almost too much. Like admiring some ornate Gothic church, there's a part of your brain that rebels against the perfection on display, and wants something messier and uglier. Lilith.pk3 is, in its own way, just as intricately made as those other maps, except the craft is directed towards making something more experimental, corrupted and obtuse. Sprites, textures, music and sounds are all heavily modified, and engine bugs leveraged, to create the impression of a game world that is twisted and wrecked beyond repair. That player must navigate through a colourfully discordant environment that both does and does not conform to their expectations of a typical Doom game.   The mod's aesthetic is not totally unprecedented, either in Doom modding, wider gaming, or art in general. Glitch art, as the style is known, has enjoyed some success over the past few years, purposefully employing the kind of analogue and digital corruption that occasionally affects regular media for stylistic effect. The same criticism that could be levelled at glitch might also be raised here: that it is style over substance. When you strip away the confrontational aesthetic, is there anything left? E.g. would you play these levels if they were presented in a more conventional manner?   I would argue that, on balance, there is. While the gameplay is not quite as daring or original as the presentation it's wrapped up in, there are some cool ideas there. And the aesthetic is used to enhance these ideas, not disguise them. Towards the end, it does become a little needlessly frustrating, as the player must dance around moving and frozen projectiles over a series tiny platforms in a damaging floor. After reloading for the umpteenth time, you may wonder exactly why you're bothering to continue. But overall, lilith.pk3 admirably achieves what it sets out to do, and is well worth your time. Even if it ultimately turns you off, we should be glad that the Doom community still produces work as different and challenging as this.

      Definitely 5 out of 5. I am so fascinated with the wad! All maps are incredibly designed and have traces that I have seen in doom2.

      Very impressive visuals.  The fights were very, very hard but were also very fresh.  Recommended but be prepared to die a lot!
