Any intense/atmospheric wads?

Recommended Posts

You can make any level that way with some mods. DarkDoomZ to make the level dark and some creepy ambient music to set the mood. Reshade can darken up any OpenGL game if you don't want to use gzdoom. If you want intense you can add something like Hideous Destructor.

**Edit** Look into Total Chaos. Thanks @MDevlin

 

What's that Wad that pushes the Doom engine to its limits? It has subpar gameplay but is a very impressive wad with dark atmosphere? Got a inventory system too.

Hell Ground comes to mind. Eternal did other wads that might qualify but this is the one I remember the most, along with the one that starts in a train and you then walk through a ghost city.

 

I guess I'm slightly out of scope though, so see that as branching out from straight up dark ambient mood perhaps (for most of Hell Ground at least, the late parts are very Doom 3 if I remember correctly).

Thanks for the suggestions, also any good horror wads? (already know about the clown one, unloved, damned cities)

The Ghoul's Forest Series (don't play the 4th installment though)

Resurrected Nightmare is pretty good. Looks like a WIP but still good.

if you use the psx music wad or similar ambient music  , almost every wad become atmospheric .

Happy Time Circus 1 and 2, which may or may not be "the clown one."

Then how about Phocas Island 2? That was pretty well-received back in the day.

 

Not scary, but highly atmospheric.
