"The Spectre Awards"

Recommended Posts

 

 

 

 

 

In a similar, yet slightly different, vein I would like to propose The Spectre Awards. It's intended to be a companion award along with the "Not Cacowards" (see preview below) pitched by @Catpho. This award is intended to stoke recollection and incite questions like, "Yeah, whatever happened to that anyway?" or exclamations such as "Neat idea, I can't believe that project crapped out" or "That was bogus" and so on. 

 

Nominees would include projects that got /newproject-ed, buried pages deep, or otherwise on life support. Or projects with a ridiculous premise, like pay-for-play. It would be interesting to find out what was, almost was, or what could be, like the figurative skunk apes of the Doomworld forums. One potential benefit would be a reigniting if interest or collaboration to help get sobe worthy, albeit forgotten, projects over the finish line. What's the opinion of the community?

The Spectre trophy image is there, although you may not be able to see it.

Holy carp I have like a whole list of those. Here they are in no particular order (not including those already mentioned):

Vela Pax

Revelations of Doom

Threshold of Pain 2

Kama Sutra 2

Ultimate Doom

Doom 2 the Way ID Did: The Lost Levels

TNT 2: Devilution

UAC Ultra 2

Eternal Doom 4

Deus Vult II

DoomX

Necromantic Thirst

Reticula

 

Would be awesome if the authors could shed some light on these. Or just admit they stopped working on them and that the stuff will never get released :p

 

EDIT: Also would be awesome to get the final version of BTSX Ep 2 released.

I like this idea. Particularly for the projects that had a great deal of excitement, but then faded into a period of dormancy.

 

With that in mind, I'd like to add Switcheroom 2 to the list. It had a recent burst of activity to get it finished that faded away after a few weeks, and now it seems to be back to sleep.
