SIGIL - New Romero megawad for Feb 2019

Recommended Posts

Well, I figured that since a lot of Doom tracks are MIDI renditions of popular metal songs, John Romero would have wanted to do that again, only this time with music composed specifically for the occasion.

i'm guessing that the Buckethead tracks are the intended soundtrack for the episode, and whatever the MIDI alternative is going to be won't be that exciting in comparison. could be surprised, though, given that the episode is going to be released free, and the soundtrack is only provided if you buy any of the Sigil boxes.

For all we know Buckethead has created 3,000 MIDI tracks since working with Romero

Hell, he probably created two just in the span of me making this post

 

I downloaded Romero's streams and play them in the background while I work on maps, and either I misheard or misunderstood, but it sure sounded like when he was asked about creating E4M2 in 8 hours, he mentioned he created one of the Sigil levels in a single day.

I think it's kind of clear what it is. I believe it's an expansion to The Ultimate Doom - an Episode 5. Would really fit for the 25th anniversary. Not sure how I feel about accepting "pre-orders." Skeptical on what that's all about. But we'll see.

 

Ordered it.

If i can get a confirmation the Icon Of Sin pewter is the same scale as the classic pewters, i’m definetely getting the beast box. 

 

Edit: Just found the merch site don’t take BB orders after the 24th - that’s what i get for being on vacation during Doom’s 25th ...

I mean, if he wasn't done he wasn't done I guess.

 

You're in the wrong game, buddy. It's Doom, not Duke.

BTW: If it's not done yet, how can he give a release date?

Pretty much every game released by a studio is given a release date before it's finished. We've only really seen exceptions to that with things like Steam Early Access and mods. Sometimes they are pushed back, but for the most part, release dates serve to "motivate" (read: stress out) the development team, among other purposes.

The levels are done but he's still polishing them. He's changed minor things between his streams.

 

There could be other reasons for the delay on Limited Run's side, though that wouldn't have stopped him from releasing the wad to the Internet I guess.

My guess is that the WAD will be released after the ones who have paid for the box have received their copy (or at least most of them). I can imagine some people might be a little bit disgruntled otherwise. Personally I wouldn't mind, but you never know ...

 

As for the delay: It was my impression that it was to get the exact number of orders and then produce the boxes accordingly.

Correct. That's what they initially communicated.

In other words, we don't know what's in the bucket.

I know I'm super late to post here, but this looks really kick-ass! The legend himself making a whole new episode for Doom? Yes please!
Already pre-ordered my box set in December. Can't wait to play it next month!
