Lost a bet = Make a wad. (Overhauled and Updated.) (W.I.P)

Recommended Posts

I don't know what were we thinking when a friend and I decided to make a bet with such a topic. To top it off, each loss in our game resulted in further conditions being added, which resulted in one hell of an endeavor for me. (Keep in mind I have never touched any doom-related editing tools/engines.)

In the end, I lost and the conditions were set in stone as follows:-


1) Make a megawad.

2) Difficulty raising with each level without it becoming a slaughterfest.

3) Each map must "feel" different and not "repetitive."

4) Hybrid theme of old-school maps and new.

5) At least simple tinkering with slade and scripts.

6) Absolutely no editing earlier maps when you finished them. (Humiliation bonus.)  Condition revoked.


I was only able to do 13 maps, before I ran out of ideas and my friend complied.


Port: Tested in Zdoom. (Doombuilder, Doom in Hexen format.)

IWAD: Doom2.

Maps: 13. (Final goal 15)

Difficulty: The first 5 maps are kind of a joke. (In terms of map design.) However, the monster placement is tricky. I would say it's brutal in the later maps and I would advise using your ammo carefully.

Credits: Skypack textures are from skieseye.wad.

"Batsu Game" would've been a more appropriate name, but I digress.


Looks decently worth checking out, especially for that sweet schadenfreude.

I can tell people were turned off immediately due to the first few maps, which is a fair point. Therefore, a complete overhaul will be made on the first 5 maps when I'm done finishing the later maps.


Final goal will be a 20-map wad.

Major Update:-


This fixes most of the problems and the starting maps are now more tolerable to the eye.




- Added more weapons, ammo and health. Pistol starting all of the maps is now possible. (Some are still hard tho.)

- The first 4 maps got updated without messing too much with the gameplay. (I like their simplicity.)

- Map 04 should be easier to navigate now.

- Removed the unnecessary switches in map 05.

- Fixed map 07's skybox and added more mountain scenery.

- Fixed map 08's scripts.

- Removed map 12's ... uhh.... unfair sequence.

- Map 14 added.


That being said, I feel I should address a couple of things first. This wad doesn't really have a category, by that I mean the maps are different from each other in terms of gameplay. Some are very simple, others are very hectic/active and some are non-linear. (Check @HAK3180 playthrough.)


If you want to skip some maps because you don't like that category or need more context, the following will be a summary of each map.


Map List:-



Map 01 - Simple gameplay, nothing special. 

Map 02 - Simple gameplay, nothing special.

Map 03 - Simple gameplay, nothing special.

Map 04 - You will either find this fun or annoying.

Map 05 - A step up from the simplicity.

Map 06 - Slow-paced.

Map 07 - Navigation is a bit confusing, but very active gameplay.

Map 08 - Speedrun or 100%.

Map 09 - Ammo/Health gimmick.

Map 10 - Tight ammo, active gameplay.

Map 11 - Swarm gameplay.

Map 12 - Non-linear and swarm gameplay.

Map 13 - Non-linear, tight ammo and active gameplay.

Map 14 - Don't want to spoil this one.


This leaves maps 15 - 20. Map 15 is probably gonna be a city theme, and the rest will be Hell themed. Hopefully, they will be near map 14's quality or at the very least map 13.

Well, that's the fastest mistake in history. Map 01's file was corrupted and therefore the level is a blend of the old one and the new one. R.I.P. (Will try to fix asap.)

Just a small tease for what's coming soon. (No promises when tho, this map wasn't supposed to be a full blown city map.)

Unfortunately, I will not be able to make 20 maps. There are a few reasons as to why though.


1) I'm burned out... And I'm talking about the bad one. As in you stare at a square sector for an hour unable to decide the textures.

2) Map 15 is the biggest and most ambitious map I am working on so far. If you're curious as to know "How big is your big?" This spoiler shows you about 40% of the map and my work so far. 




3) I want to end the wad at a high note. Because, to be honest, I just don't see myself doing something better than this at my current mapping skills. The hell maps will just feel like filler and will leave a bad taste as a finale.
