About This File

This is No Sleep for the Dead, a Doom 1 episode replacement and the spiritual successor to 1997's Dawn of the Dead. This episode features 9 brand new original and consistently themed levels in classic good ol' Doom style. In addition, you receive one bonus level which runs on E2M1.

For completion's sake, I've also included a dehacked patch which only changes the level names. You can apply it manually to your vanilla doom.exe, but most source ports should pick it up automatically because it's embedded into the wad file as well.

Vanilla classic gameplay and level designed. I've enjoyed it a lot. 4.5/5

Masterfully classic architecture with superb lighting, spot-on monster placement and smooth gameflow turns this into a must-play for anyone who likes vanilla-style maps. Van der Veken cleverly mixes in elements from ep.2 and 3 without losing the KDITD touch. Could have easily been part of the original release of the game. Skillfully executed, fun to play, making you demand more. Needless to say, you gotta download this if you want to check out one of the classic Doom highlights of 2016.

E1/Romero worship wad #667. Competently made but so are half the other E1 replacements. Grossly overrated. 2/5

If I were visiting Russia and some guy stopped me on the street to peddle this off as an official Id expansion pack for Doom; I very well might believe him. That's how good this is.

      WHAT WAS THE MAKER FUCKING THINKING?!?!?!?!, This wad is a product of a infected diseased brain, why make a wad based on something cringe?, it is worse than Action 52 on the Nes or Hong Kong 97 on the Snes or EVEN BIG FUCKING RIGS ON THE PC! the enemy is not even scary it just happens to be a poorly drawn sprite, also he INSTANTLY KILLS YOU! the music is decent though i have to say it was a fuckin nightmare, If you play on skulltag level 2 will crash, since fuckin glitch gremlin wiped his ass on it, anyways FUCK this wad to Hell, get a infinity gauntlet and Snap it out of existence.

      well, the concept is good  BUT...   WHAT THE FUCK EVEN IS THIS??

      Definitely shows its age. It was a real grind to play through, mostly due to the levels being boring, but also from a remarkable over-reliance on hitscan, especially shotgunners. For some reason. The third episode does indeed pick up much of the slack, but with the really fun levels being shining exceptions rather than rule for two thirds of the WAD it still left me annoyed and exasperated in the end. The maps look fine most of the time and the music is good to really good, which is something to hold on to. I would still advice my past self to skip most of this one.

      There's not too much for me to say about this one. While it isn't exactly my jam 100% of the time, I'm struggling to see how any creative endeavor could entertain me so thoroughly, throughout all the 32 parts of it. Ancient Aliens is charming, somewhat challenging, mysterious, well-paced... I could iterate over plenty of different variations of lavish praise, but I guess that in and of itself describes my feelings: AA is remarkably well-rounded. A DOOM blockbuster - and I use that description as an honest compliment rather than the pejorative it's sometimes thought of. One for the ages, and it'll be one of the WADs to which many of my future experience will be compared.

      On second thought, this wad is kinda mid if you ask me. After playing through all of it on pistol-start I wasn't really blown away by it. The midi pack that was made for this in 2020 was very nice if you ask me, but why this wad ever deserves a midi pack when it's so bland is what makes me scratch my head. Idk man, I didn't like this one as much as others do :/.
