Animus Abinde: a megaWAD project by K12machinima (IN PROGRESS)

Recommended Posts

The HUGE Guts of It:


Well, hello there, everybody. This is a megaWAD project I've been working on since I've moved recently, at about a map per week, off and on. After I finally released Ulcer a while back, I decided to actually keep mapping, just to improve, have fun, and try my hand at making a cohesive, flowing megaWAD. I'll be adding more public releases as time goes on (maybe every month or so), to get some feedback, testing, and just to get some of my stuff out there into the Doom community.


Ulcer took me way too long to make, could have been better, and I wanted to make a more "pure" Doom WAD experience, something like Alien Vendetta, Hell Revealed, Scythe, or even some of the more fun maps by Skillsaw and the new episode, Sigil, by Romero. I wanted the experience to be like the newer shooters of today, the classics like Blood and Duke 3D, and of course, arcade-like and fun like Doom 1-2. Most of the combat is rewarded with health and armor bonuses for nimble players, and clever players who like their secrets will be right at home with some of the secrets I've put in. The tone of this is also a LOT more lighter than Ulcer, so, expect to at least crack a slight smile here or there... if, you know, you're not a jaded, horrible person.




I currently put up a video walkthrough of the current state of the WAD, and have made some changes, like the couch being an infinite health source in map02, and am going to remove autosave lindefs in next build. Map05 is done, and map06 is "sculpted" and currently being worked on. :) - 11-29-21


The Story:


(copied from the .txt)


 As a new marine into the UAC, you find yourself stationed in the security section of a newly opened dig site on the surface of Mars. It's not exactly the greatest of places, but not exactly what you would describe as "hard" work to start with; the food is okay, the dorms for security staff are okay, and the whole place is just "okay". You're on your last week of work at this boring, lifeless site, and just want to go back to Earth, where at least you know you can step outside without your lungs rupturing. After a long day of helping import some crates into the nearby lobby you hear some strange sounds coming from the dorm to your right.

This yahoo near you has been up at all hours of the Martian night, playing all sorts of loud music, shouting what you can only assume is Latin, and making all sorts of racket - every day since you've been stationed. You've heard some strange stuff from this room, but... this sounds like a scream: a scream that you've never heard before, on Earth, space, or any other planet you've been to so far.
You get out of bed, grab your security pistol off the desk, and as you hastily put a clip in, you hear another ghastly sound coming from the hall, followed by what sounds like gunshots. Perhaps, this is the moment you've been waiting for? You glance over at the nearby dresser that houses your armor vest; maybe you can see if the UAC guarantee of "your vest can save your life, every time" is actually true, or just something the higher-ups say to make you feel at ease...

Is this texture filtering turned on? 
Dude, you...

I know, I know. If it makes you feel better, I keep the old-fashioned HUD, never use mouse-look, and don't like crosshair mods. *holds up pinky* I promise.
