I've just finished playing all the maps, and seeing this TNT maps remade is a great feeling. Generally they are all a step above their original counter part, but also having played TNT Revilution I can't help but compare then, and putting the maps that pull the same inspiration side by side there is no contest, Renascence is left way behind, not to say there are bad, but Transduction and Fortress of Bullets are just in another League.
Now, Taking advantage that I'm talking about Revilution it's map 18 (Hell's Signs) was made by Eternal and probrably is a little glimpse of what episode 2 of Renascence could've been.

Finally, I find it very tragic that this isn't getting a sequel, but since Eternal still an active mapper so the hope isn't complete lost.

Eternal shows one more time how much he loves TNT: Evilution.

 

Sincerely, i can't show him how much i appreaciate this love.

It just made verything right, even the quirky designs of the original team are respected here, and impproves with hist vast knowledge an excellence on mapping.

 

Eternal, i can only wait for you to, someday, revisit this project and make a full Renascence for this much beloved IWAD.

Faithful recreation of the first 11 maps of TNT: Evilution, with levels similar to their original counterparts but having enough differences to make it a refreshing experience. While TNT: Evilution have its flaws and this PWAD still carries some of the more infamous ones (MAP08: Metal comes to mind), this is still a solid set of levels that captured the sense of adventure and exploration that is present in the TNT IWAD.

Remakes are never better than the originals and this happened to be a remake of something not so good.

Renascence is to TNT what Remain1 is to Doom2, sortof. Pretty good work, even if the map04 reinterpretation could be better in my opinion. ~Naan

Not bad. You did a pretty good job recreating the levels from TNT.

Captures the TNT feel very well. Not a big fan of Evilution, but I enjoyed these for the most part. Some of the original maps (Map08, Map11) just weren't salvageable, and Map06 felt like I downgrade from the original. Still, 4/5 for making tnt levels I don't hate.

Enjoyed it immensely. It kept the style of the original whilst keeping things new and with Eternal's trademark style. Very good. 5 stars. -TRRobin.

This was really awesome. I felt like I was low on ammo the first few maps but other than that the whole thing was just amazing. Good work, I'm hoping to see a remake for the rest of the maps. 5/5 -High Flyin' Ryan

Good remake, not bad for TNT fans, but it's a little hard...stopped play at map07, because I get boring on that, like the original TNT. :p 4/5 -playerlin

MAP01 had me worried that the whole mapset was going to be too easy, as I didn't get hit once. However I'd managed to die on MAP07, so the difficulty had curved nicely. Certainly has the feel of the original, but perhaps sticks a little to close to the principles, as I'm not much of an Evilution fan. 4* - Phobus

A very impressive remake. I'm six maps in. Personally, I would have preferred if you were less faithful to the original (I don't think the original TNT is that good). Thanks for sharing.

      Decent map w/ a lot of symmetry - but that's to be expected from a WAD based on a real place.   I took it upon myself to look the library up on Google Maps, and you can definitely see what the author was going for architecturally - the library in this map is pretty close visually to the one in real life! It even has the little cube sculpture out front!   Doom isn't the best medium to recreate real places, but it does an adequate job here. In terms of gameplay, the map is very easy! One should have no problem beating this map on UV. The most difficult part of this map is its navigation. It is a little bit of a switch-hunt.   Monster placement is surprisingly good for a map of this type.   Check the map out, and then look it up on Google Maps! You'll definitely see the resemblance! :)

      A bit of a cramped map, but there are many fun fights to see here. This is one of those maps w/ very little room to run around. You better be able to dodge revenant fireballs in close quarters if you are to have success here. This map isn't too difficult, but it is a fair challenge. I'd say it'd be a 6/10 on the difficulty scale today.   There is some mean archvile placement in this map, too. A lot of fights involve hit and run tactics, as there isn't nearly enough room to circle-strafe in this map. Because one can't circle-strafe, the map is far more difficult.   There is one absolutely great trap involving a dark corridor near the end of the map. I don't want to spoil it, as its quite a 'scary' section of the map.   I recommend you play w/ a port that supports MAPINFO, as there is a message at the end of the WAD when you win.   Great map from the early 2000s. Check it out!

      Not at all bad. Quite a good time on UV. Most of the fights are against fodder type enemies - you rarely feel in danger at all throughout the entire level.   Map has a couple good traps, but most of the encounters are "groups of enemies standing in rooms" type encounters...   Not horrible, feels like an early map by this author, as if they were still trying to get their footing. Give this one a try, if you want some older 'classic' style gameplay.

      The spidermastermind fight was fun - I had to get it to infight w/ a caco, in order for me to slide by and get the red key.   The map was easy to navigate, but was not much to look at. The map is very bland in its texturing theme, and architecturally, does not resemble an average  level from 2008. This visually looks like a map from a far earlier mapping period. Lots of 90-degree rooms, and very simple geometry.   Even w/ all of this in mind - it was still an okay 4-5 minutes worth of fun, even if a bit of a drab experience...

      If this is really the author's first map, then I am very impressed! Some great architecture in this map - feels like you're deep behind hellish lines. Combat is very easy - which is to be expected of a map designed to be in the map01 slot. The map is a bit linear, but that is to be expected from one's first foray into mapping.   I really really like the way this map looks, I only wish it was a little more difficult!   Worth a shot to see some decent hell architecture!
