Maybe we will find some inspiration to Doom mapping.

 

This one reminds me Doom 2016

It's so similar to what you see in the Doom games but also so different. 

 

Hell in Doom games never made me feel disgusted and uneasy even though it's very similar to what you see in Agony (especially the Boneyard MP map in Doom 2016). In fact, it's kind of a pleasure to stroll through hell maps in Doom. It feels "awesome" rather than disgusting. Even the blood always gave the impression of kool-aid. When you stroll in Doom's hell, you're kind of either supposed to be awed by the atmosphere or smirk at how edgy it is. There's none of that in Agony.

 

Game is boring and tedious though. Downloaded it, played for about an hour and a half then I just watched a walkthrough.

 

Oh, and to those who are disappointed by the ending, it supposedly has multiple endings.

Agony's aesthetics are honestly the sole reason I got so intrigued by it. From what little I've heard of it so far, I haven't heard too many good things, but I'll still probably grab it if it goes on sale, if only to satisfy my curiosity.

True, the game is definitely not worth 40 bucks. More like 15.

I might get it just for the sake of experiencing their vision of Hell. What makes me hesitate is the fact from the videos the game looks really clunky and confusing.

I blame Unreal engine and fame for the $40 price tag.

I wish someone did a systematic breakdown as to why Boneyard and Agony are so similar yet feel very different.

@DooM_RO boneyard is much far different than agony. I love all Doom hell in new Doom and in 1993/4 Doom.

Agony is an interesting game. I like these hell conceptions. I just want to play it to look at the places, textures and models. Is much better than Inner Chains. Agony reminds me a bit Observer but I like much better Agony game realm.

Imagine Doom marine walking on such places and shooting demons. That would be cool. Doom Hell.

I can definitely see why people think it's Doomish but to me, Doom's hell is supposed to be a fun, edgy place, with some seriousness mixed in...if that makes any sense. If I see a gothic cathedral made of bloody brick I want to be like "woah, this is so cool" instead of cringing.

Doom 2016 Hell didn't have the same impact as Doom 3's did on me, It felt like a desert. If a sequel happens I'd like to see them take inspiration from this or do something like the Multiplayer level Boneyard.

I like very much Doom 3 and Doom 3 hell, but Doom 2016 has much, hmm how to say, funnier/better hell levels. Resurrection of evil hell was for example like fast copy of Doom 3 hell.

Yeah Doom '16 Hell is definitely the better in terms of gameplay but aesthetically I feel Doom 3 takes the cake :p

Doom 3 hell has much heavier atmosphere. It's a different type of hell compares to D16. The Spirit World is for me closer to new Doom than D3.

Googled for screenshots from Agony.

Hey, in Doom, you're the badass who's tougher than Hell. It can't be too unsettling because your in-game avatar doesn't let himself be impressed or discouraged by whatever he sees.

Yeah, that's true. But there's also something else that's different. I mean, when I play a wad and see a bloody cathedral made of bone and blood I'm like "woah, this is so cool" but seeing the same thing in Agony does not have the same effect.

The universe they created is so intriguing. I kinda wish they made a shooter out of it. 

 

Spoiler

In the normal ending you find out that you actually triggered the apocalypse in the modern era. What if in the next game you played as a US marine, struggling against the forces of Hell, trying to stave of armageddon for as long as possible?

Ok, curiosity got the better of me and I bought it. Let's see what it has to offer.

How long is the game, on average?

@Glaice - reviwers talk about 10 hours. I play 1-2 hours a day. I've just passed forest. By the way new patch arrived. In the Internet you can see deleted scenes (warning only 18+).

I don't like that you seem to be rather weak in game from what I've seen.  I come to kick ass and chew bubble gum.

There's talk of an uncensored version being released on GOG. Though it seems to me that shock and gore is all the game has to offer. Nevertheless I'm mildly intrigued, I'll probably check it out when it's on sale for £5 or something.

Visually the game is absolutely amazing. The gameplay is actually not as clunky as it seemed from trailers. But I'm not sure, I don't care too much for the censored content but hey, if GOG ends up releasing an AO version, I'd rather have an unaltered experience. So I'm kind of keeping my playtime below 2h so that if that happens I can refund it on Steam and get the GOG version. Plus it'll probably get a bunch of patches in the meantime.

Apparently there will be an uncensored version, Agony Unrated, released in three months. Devs want to make sure that people who have bought it on Steam get it either as a free DLC or with a 99% discount.

 

That's good news. I'll hold off with playing it until the Unrated version comes out. Should also give Madmind enough time to fix a bunch of problems and polish the game a bit. Sucks that it'll take another three months though.

With the content policy being updated on Steam, now we don't have that problem.

I've just finished. Well, first part is most interesting. Strange city before end and after forest is for me the worst part. Level design reminds me old bad Doom 3 mods with hell.

 

Here some cool screenshots from other places:

I head high hopes for this game, but the reviews so far are pretty disappointing. Seems unfinished and buggy.
