Cacowards 2019 Mentionation Thread

Recommended Posts

Just now, Elio Nako said:

It may even not be nominated...

It also doesn't depend on whether anyone nominates it -- this thread is mainly a way to help make sure we don't miss anything, but we're all active in the community, and the odds of us not being aware of a release have proven to be pretty low. If you find a hardworking author who nobody has mentioned yet, just post about it here.

There are dozens of maps out there with a hardworking author that just couldn't get enough representation.

That's your job, then. If the award staff misses something big, and you didn't nominate it, that's on you.

True. There have been 'top ten' or even 'top five' nominees 'snubbed' from anything at all. 2017 Moonblood & Inquisitor 3 were in the top ten for mainline nominations & didn't make a list of 19 total awards/runners up (though the later was subsequently recognized as a snub, and the former is in the Review Corner). 2016 rf1024 was in the same camp & Alpha Accident was a zero nomination winner. Those are just a few examples I was able to dig up with little effort...Probably part of why the whole thing since 2017 is now called 'Mentionations'.

I have to say Doom2 with Half Life sfx is one of the funniest things I've ever come across on this forum. Definitely worth consideration for a joke wad.

Honestly, Cacowards is just unfair. There are dozens of maps out there with a hardworking author that just couldn't get enough representation.

Give me your nomination / mentionation and I give you my word that I'll play it myself. It doesn't matter to me whether it's big/headline-y/popular etc. or not.

Demonic deviation (don't confuse with other Demonic deviation that just happened to have the same amount of maps) wasn't even in the "what are we still waiting for section". It's very good: gradual difficulty progression, D2 textureset feels new again through stylish architecture and interesting combat setups.

+ Abysm: Dawn of Innocence by jazzmaster9

New here & was surprised no one seemed to mention this one yet. It totally reworks how Doom plays, making it a medieval more seamless world with a city hub. Thought it deserved a nod!

 

Agreed! It's like if Doom and Ocarina of Time had a baby, and it's fantastic.

I assume the creator of this map within GZdoom is Skaarjman, the one who uploaded that clip to Youtube.

 

Agreed. At least as a tech demo, it is very impressive. Something bad must've happened though, since all YouTube videos and the ModDB page have been scrubbed clean.
