Description : You're invited to a cookout. But this ain't no
picnic! Prepare to fry some demonic butt as you
claw your way out of the Star Chamber to find out
what lies beyond. But keep an eye on your back,
or you may be next on the spit!
This is one of those infamous "first WAD"
attempts. As such it includes the usual hodge-
podge of every idea the author ever thought of
regarding a DOOM level. Yes, most anything
regarding theme and consistency has been tossed
carelessly over the edge of the abyss, with a
spicy mixture of nifty puzzles, neat gizmos and
cool structures proudly taking their place. It
ain't French cookin', but it oughta satisfy a
hungry Doomer for a meal or two. Watch for the
baron's BBQ...and there's some fairly amazing
graphic textures at the end...if you can make it
that far. <8-)
