About This File

In this wad, I create an intimate experience full of tiny interactions and surprises. It is a fully hand-drawn, wholesome environment in which the player waters flowers, pets their dog, and wanders around in nature.

It was extremely interesting for me to create something so feminine and gentle out of a game so masculine and violent. I realized that what I was creating became so much more than just a wholesome environment. I was modifying death animations so that when you water a flower "enemy" with your watering can "weapon," the flower starts to dance rather than die. Or the dog, a modification of the demon, goofily wobbles around and follows you out of a need for love rather than out of a desire to kill.

Adorable is a word I'd agree with for this wad and will start my review with for the purpose of extending the power of the subliminal advertising here.

 

Unfortunately, this wad is small and limited in resources, so even trying to look at this in the light of wads that don't contain maps still has this wad coming up short. Would love to see the author take these assets, add some more, and learn about map design in the advanced GzDoom engine, as this has potential and it would be cool to explore some more areas with this going on.

 

Definitely give it a download and a quick look, if just for how cutesy it is :D

4 out of 5 just because it was funny summoning friendly demons to bite the flowers.

 

Also watching a friendly cyberdemon not having any effect on the flowers was fun too.

Adorable, if a bit insubstantial: I'd give this 3 stars due to how little there is, but I feel like I'd be ruining someone's day if I did. Also the default hand acts as a somewhat rapid weak chainsaw in the stock maps, heh.

Adorable, but sadly only one room. Wish there were more so I could spend more than 5 minutes in this world. Love super creative stuff like this!

I really enjoyed playing this, even though there isn't a lot of content. It's relaxing and cute, and that's really all it needs to be. I would love to see more Doom WADs like this.

      Very good MEGAWAD. Keep up the good work guys!

      Two great vanilla maps with great challenge and excellent level design. The atmosphere is solid and vanilla textures are used wonderfully here, I especially love the sky texture here. Ammo might be a bit tight on the first map if you don't manage your ammo well, but otherwise, it's a fantastic set of vanilla levels.

      I actually haven't played this just yet, but I feel like I need to get something off my chest before I get to playing this wad. So read below:   Whoever is immediately downvoting my reviews as not helpful, even almost the instant I post them, get a fucking life. I want to know what I did that is making you hate everything I do. Come forward and speak, fucking coward. I try what I can to make my reviews worthy enough so that people can actually read some insight before playing a wad, and I'm as accurate as I can get. So then, whoever you are, tell me what I need to do to improve.   Still, downmarking everyone's reviews, especially the ones that just get recently updated, isn't really helping your cause. It isn't even helping any type of a cause, if you make of one. This hasn't happened to some of the more recent reviews right now, but it seems to happen more often to me than it does to others, and I bet this vote trolling isn't gonna stop soon. It should though. Either I'm doing something horribly wrong or someone just hates me or something.

      I thought this wad was pretty fun. It had a little overabundance of Realm667, but that doesn't mean it's bad. I liked the challenge and the fact you have to conserve ammo. Over all, it's pretty good.

      The two reviews submitted prior to this one are rather unfair on this map, I feel. Yes it's basic and cramped, but I found it pretty tough on UV with its limited health and ammo (couldn't find a Berserk or chainsaw either) and enjoyed the challenge.   Approaching 7/10.
