[RELEASE] Broadsword Jim - Weapon replacement for Ultimate/Doom II

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Over a decade ago I made an MSPaint-style weapon replacement mod. It was awful.

 

So over the course of May this year, I got to work fairly obsessively on a goofy, sort-of medieval style weapon set for DooM, with my own handdrawn sprites.

 

So, this WAD follows the adventures of Broadsword Jim, the bloke with a sword for a head, and the sword is pissed off. You can use your own head as a weapon and swing it around while still being able to look in front of you, shhhh don't question it, it's all a bit silly on purpose.

 

This WAD includes:

-9 new weapons with altfires included

-Diverse and interesting weapon designs and functions

-Somewhat inspired by the Berserk manga

-Slightly over-the-top, anachronistic weaponry

-A new melee system, even more fun with the Berserk powerup!

-No reloading! No cover mechanics! Absolutely no microtransactions!

Wow! I've not seen those graphic replacements for the enemies and textures before, but they complement the mod's aesthetic very well! And are those Dungeon Keeper sound effects I'm hearing? On a side note, I liked the music too.

 

What an excellent showcase! Thank you for making this video!
