Began development on several
Doom levels in past years but the BSP I was using
ripped up my maps before they were completed.
Description : *This version of Zero Day includes an optimised, MP3
soundtrack with custom instruments. If you'd like the
vanilla MUS-file edition, its in zeroday.zip, which
you should find in the same location.
This was developed as a companion piece to a
novel I'm currently marketing - Zero
Day. I chose to develop it in Doom because I
wanted something I could distribute freely and
easily, as a whole package.
Zero Day, the Doom addon, sees you travelling
across a fictionalised west coast of the U.S.A.,
fighting demons, allegedly in search of the lead
protagonist from the novel.
The novel begins in the midst of political
turmoil as reluctant political figurehead, poster
boy and rockstar, Jeremy Government, vanishes
from the public eye. There's nothing left of
the Earth but desert, in most places, and cities
are ruled by board meetings, ideals towards
serving "the common good," and a concise
anti-capitalist regime. Citizens are suffering, and
rebel forces plot against it in the
darkness. Jeremy surfaces amidst them, and, learning
a few hard truths, he joins their campaign. They plant a bomb
in a government building, while Jeremy makes a short public
appearance, albeit, in the ensuing chaos, Jeremy is shot live on
television, sparking a revolution.
