Misc. Author Info : Makes maps for Doom
Description : Ancient Aliens is a megawad featuring 32 colorful,
action-packed maps for Boom compatible ports.
Go on a journey to discover the truth about the
enigmatic origins of human civilization...
I'm not saying it was aliens, but... the truth
is out there.
Port Differences : ZDoom-based ports and Eternity use MAPINFO for
episode selection and story screens.
Additionally, in Zdoom-based ports and Eternity,
ACS is used to play sound effects occasionally.
This is way more cool than it sounds.
