About This File

Technically innovative. Contains graphic enhancements, reminiscent more of Duke Nukem 3D than Doom, though requires no EXE enhancements - just load up the PWAD and go!

Surely a innovation for the time that must be remembered. Nowadays with ANIMDEFS and ~120 frames you can achieve the same effect.

Some surprisingly clever vanilla effects. The level itself isn't particularly playable as a deathmatch map, but it's worth looking at just for the ingenuity of the author, from a time when most people hadn't thought of this sort of stuff yet. Make sure to play with 35 tics per second, though; unlatched framerate's interpolation will break one of the more interesting effects. -esselfortium

That "Holovid" effect blew my mind, I've never seen anything like it. These days you could use a mapinfo lump to have animation that smooth, but man that's impressive. I've been mapping for years and I'm not quite sure how he achieved this.. Overall cool stuff here, even if it's scattered accross a typical 90's deathmatch map. That face is also very creepy.

      Another abomination in doom mapping. It's crap even in crap category.

      Ugly, rectangular, not enough ammo. In one word: CRAP

      Sound replacement is terrible. Sounds are very annoying. Level also is ugly. Only thing I like is sprites replacement. Kicking nazi asses is same as good like demons ones ;)

      Dear Doomkid,

      I was involved in the design and play-test of each of these levels. Please know these were created from *scratch* and we spent our time making sure the levels were as playable as possible. We were not terribly focused on texturing, other than to give players positional awareness in different parts of each arena.

      Map 6 -- Offices of Death -- Was intentionally designed to be as accurate a representation of the office we worked in as possible. Admittedly, playability was taken as a second priority. We did manage to create working "elevators" and "stairs" to give the illusion you were going up and down floors. I was pretty happy with how we did.

      Considering it was 1996, and no way to simply "Google" different ideas. Your best bet at the time was to jump onto the Usenet and hope you could find a decent board with active members. Other than that, it was pretty much all self-taught.

      I'm glad you enjoyed the other levels. Yes, they are old-school, big arena, style. We spent a LOT of time trying to make sure they were as balanced as possible, with escape routes, and required risks for rewards.

      Excellent stuff for the mid-1990s. Lots of action, good layouts, pretty challenging on UV.    9/10
