Cacowards 2020 Mentionation Thread

Recommended Posts

I've scrolled through the whole thread to check, and we're approaching that nebulous cut-off point for the year, so I thought I'd highlight DBP19: A Doomer Boards Christmas Carol as a big one from near the end of last year. I appreciate I was heavily involved in it, and might not even be eligible to mentionate it as a result, but apparently @Big Ol Billy is on the cusp of finalising the release in time for this coming Christmas, and even without that /idgames upload, it is the best (and perhaps most comprehensive?) Christmas project to date, in my estimation. Look out in the DWMC thread for me voting for this for next month, too :P

Personally I'm still rooting for Umbral Platinum! Why yes I was the benevolent dictator of DBP18 and I think it's great :)

 

EDIT: I would like to mentionate Doom Zero if that's eligible!

The Demon Blade is one of the better GZDoom-specific maps released this year and a great adventure in its own right that sends you on a quest through abandoned villages, catacombs, forests and haunted dungeons to find the titular Demon Blade. Semi-realistic, moderate detailing and great gameplay.

I'd like to mention Archi-TEK, because the amount of detail in these maps is just mind-bending. What makes it even more impressive, this is the first public release by this author. While the maps can get confusing and thus probably  aren't Cacoward material by themselves, I think the author qualifies for the "Most promising newcomers" category.

We're at cutoff time again. Feel free to keep using the thread, but it's unlikely anything new will be considered for this cycle (it'll be for the next). Thanks for all the helpful posts. 

 

I know there has to be some date that is the cutover date, it makes sense, but you really should try this :

Oh well fuck I shoulda done something goddamn I was busy.

 

Well I did compile a list of all megawads released in 2020 as the year went on so there's bound to be a write-up of 2020 being the true "year of the megawad" even though there was a year that had been called that.

 

Spoiler

Tenebrum (Heretic)
Back to Saturn X E2*

NoReason's Speedmaps 2

180 Minutes Pour Vivre

2048 Units of /vr/ (includes a second megawad which is a "clean" version)

Happy

CPD

KINDa

The 64 kb Challenge (2 megawads)
Doom II: 25 Years on Earth (One Year Late Edition)
Interception II
MAYhem 2020
Modest Mapping Challenge
Dark Scythe

Deep Into the Massacre
NOVA III
Texture Extravaganza
Running Late 2
EthernalNightmare
SlaughterMAX
Czechbox (Jabba said something about the RCs being in 2019 but the idgames release is in 2020 so I'm counting it)

Three's a Crowd
Rowdy Rudy II

1000 Lines 2
Akeldama
OOPS: All TechBase
Magic Doom

USQC: UNLOADED (deathmatch megawad)

Abyssal Speedmapping Session 46 (has 17 maps, counting it)

A Doomer Boards Christmas Carol (25 maps)

 

(all above are idgames links)

 

Refracted Reality

Shrine II

Abandon
Faithless Trilogy
Mapwich 2

 

*already won a caco

 

37 in total. A megawad of 2020 megawads if you will. Probably more I missed.

 

Edited by NuMetalManiak : added two more

Yep, I don't see Faithless Trilogy or Mapwich 2 in your list for example.

Refracted Reality deserves a Cacoward just because of its looks, but the gameplay is strong as well.

 

For mods I'd mentionate DOOSK (Dusk weapons and monsters) for it's gameplay and effort it took and Highway Acceleroid Booster for it's originality and wackyness that every TerminusEst13 mod needs.

This mod has some potential.

 

Firstly, you don't doot your own horns (i.e don't mention your own mod) on cacoward mentionation thread. It is job of other people to mention your mods.

Secondly, the 2020 cacowards have already been announced now. So good luck for next year's cacowards :)
