About This File

My 12-level Megawad for Doom 2/Final Doom, and sequel to my previous work, Damnation. Horror-themed but still with plenty of action. Uses .ogg music files for the levels and text screens, as well as ambient sounds throughout the levels. Continues the story of Damnation, with the surviving marine encountering the Thanatos Base on the borders of the system.

Overall difficulty of the Wad is hard, with some difficult encounters in addition to some surprising tricks and traps. Levels are generally large, and average about 10-15 minutes in length each. Uses some monsters/weapons/items from Skulltag.

Requires Zandronum, as well as the additional files in the .zip (cc4-tex.wad, q2tex.wad, IDTEX.wad, skulltag_data.pk3, skulltag_actors.pk3). Read the .rtf file as well if you want to know more about the story and details on the development of the Wad.

How is it that this has so few votes? This is one really well made episode, with great and highly polished visuals, and gameplay that manages to be challenging without reliance on currently popular slaughter trappings. I hope to see more from this author - hopefully with better "promotion" and better choice of source port.

pretty good, I guess only reason this isn't more popular is that it demands what is basically viewed as multiplayer source port. maps are great, with great visuals, and lots of exploration. they use bunch of bright AVP2 textures, and they gave this wad's interior environments a very different feel. difficulty is just perfect, gameplay is closer to classic doom - since I was never into modern slaughtermap craze, I think this is a good thing.

A part of me wants to shake your hand for these expertly built remarkable maps. A part of me wants to deck you for scaring the shit out of me when I opened that door near the end of level 2. 5/5

Unique and atmospheric levels, great encounters, and a pleasant change of scenery from the usual classic-styled wads these days

      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.

      If it were renamed "Garbage Dump," I would have given it a better rating.

      A large, but not very prolong map, which is interesting to explore. I liked the author's strategy to place strong weapons in well-protected places. To get them the player need to pass a kind of test. The difficulty depends on the player's luck. It is important not to miss the shotgun at the very beginning, otherwise entangled corridors can lead the player to a situation in which he will be easy prey, left without ammo. Visually, the map looks neat, another good example of using standard textures.
