About This File

There is a dimension, a dimension full of nonsense and surrealism. It is a place where crates are out to kill you, and a place where logic jumps off a bridge. A journey into a wondrous land of ludicrosity, your next stop: Beyond Reality!

This WAD is playable on zdoom, skulltag, and zandronum, OpenGL is recommended to remove palette issues on some textures.

after playing this I am reminded of how much I fucking hate custom monsters in Doom. you've got mindfuck monsters which are funny once, and just annoying afterwards, while others are fine I guess. layouts are quite nice, difficulty gets evil quick.

Wow. This is a great wad. Completely custom HUD and what seems to be a different character. Very cool map design, and the custom monsters are super cool! Definitely worth checking out. The only thing I would say is wrong is that the difficulty settings for Ultra-Violence are just, waaayyy too hard. I can usually play most wads in Ultra-Violence, but not this one. So just be weary.

You know those terrible ZDoom mashup .WADs that throw tons of resources from Realm667 and other places together? This is like one of those, but it actually works! The 5 different map themes are very well implemented and the maps themselves are pretty good (visuals; game play; layout... all of it). It's got some flaws, some I can attribute to the author's warning, some of which are more down to monster balance and some cheap traps. I enjoyed it and really appreciated to creative use of ZDoom features. 4*

I thought this looks familiar. Much like Epic Legendary Legends, minus the suckiness and all them awesomeness thrown in. Great job. 4/5

I'll base my note on multiplayer, because the top of the file says it is one of the primary purposes. Then again if you read further you'll notice that coop wasn't tested. TXT also says that the WAD will run in Zandronum. This is false. "randomguy" monster crashes Zand clients as soon as it sees the player, this could've been averted after a simple playthrough test. MAP06 crashes Zand server on load. Gameplay becomes bad after MAP07 which is a shame. First levels are really good. 2/5 - Zalewa

Really fucking weird, but with great color choices and texturing, above average map design, and lots of new monsters. A welcome change from the million techbase WADs that came out this year. 4/5

Man, I remember watching this wad get built. It's a brilliant piece of work, and manages to be zany without becoming completely stupid. The mechanics in the maps are pretty well done as well - raising and lowering water, arena-type maps, even a Tower of Babel tribute! Recomended. 4 stars. - Obsidian

It has excellent visuals, gameplay, and interesting new monsters. Don't have to say much when you can download and see for yourself, which I recommend. I would personally like to see more innovative wads like this in the future. In short if you're not playing Beyond Reality, then you are missing out on this unique masterpiece. 5/5 -Doomguy 2000

Please note that this version has a few mistakes, such as map15 not having an exit, hopefully it'll be updated soon as I have uploaded the updated files. (Visit here for more information http://www.doomworld .com/vb/wads-mods/60 969-beyond-reality-i ts-finished-try-it-t oday/2/)

      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.

      this is a strange wad, with assets similar to Darkest Hour and other Star Wars-themed wads, many of the maps focus on small killings, as most of the maps are actually small. Pinchy's finale sure makes this worth it. oh yeah, quite a few custom stuff was done. the flamethrower marines were quite annoying, while other monsters gained multiple attacks, new ones, it's all so zany. the maps are pretty well done overall and this is worth a try.

      Okay, I get it, it's a megawad mainly for speedrunners who are intricately familiar with the mechanics of the game down to the nitty-gritty. A series of challenges/obstacles that, for the most part, seem to be possible but are generally ludicrous (and sometimes outright laughable, in a good way).   This was is not a "pile of junk" as a few have said however it's really, really lacking in a lot of ways. I get that the wad is meant to have a fun-and-not-serious tone despite it's overall extreme difficulty but the texturing looks like the insides of a toilet bowl after a Taco Bell buffet. Seriously, these maps are jealous of how beautiful and futuristic maps like UAC_DEAD look. The DWANGO series looks like fucking Ancient Aliens compared to this.   The MIDIs are lighthearted, silly and fun, which adds a layer of appeal for me personally. I loved seeing Patrick Stewart at the intermission too, rofl   I had some fun with this IDCLEVing through the whole wad and giving each map a try or 2 before moving on to the next but I seriously doubt I'll ever be back. The same idea with better texturing and overall taking itself just a tiny bit more seriously would warrant a higher rating. Ass-ugly texturing, silly MIDIs and a silly titlepic/interpic are fun in their own right so don't take me the wrong way but a lot of it crossed into "looks like the authors gave 0 fucks" category and I just have to take points away for that.   Also,   lol wtf is this bullshit is this a terrywad or somethin i mean jeeeezus   Overall, this is worth a peek just for some fun but unless you're a highly skilled speedrunner that also doesn't mind looking into a crapchute map after map, this probably doesn't really have much for you.
