List of Doom engine standalone games?

Recommended Posts

ScumHead has done a fair few retro-styled GZDoom games over on their itch.io page -- including the excellent Shrine and Lycanthorn games.

Those aren't standalone.

EDIT: Also, TerminusEst13's Nocturne in Yellow.

Ah yes, the GLOOME games. There was also Project 67, but it didn't seem to get finished or released.

Dismantled -- commercial, GZDoom

I remember playing a demo of this one.

Really fucking good horror material there.

Probably it got much better since it went commercial.

 

@Gez does Cybershade count?
It use Chocolate as source port, and doesn't need Doom to be played.

 

Also, Foreverhood.
I think its abandoned, but that was a really neat and interesting experience.

That was the one I was trying to remember!

not TCs that require some other IWAD to run.

Does that exclude Return of the Triad and Barista then? They come with nearly empty IWADs that exist solely to bypass the need for a real one.

@GezA few more:

Great list!

One game you might want to add is "Nu//void". It's a short standalone puzzle game that was made by the same guys behind "The Adventures of Square".

Breadmonster: Invasion, The Cenote, Legion of Demigods: Deathmatch - Not sure if these are standalone, but The Cenote is more certainly.

The Cenote is, but Legion of Demigods is explicitly said to be a Doom II mod, and I think Breadmonster is as well.

Solace Dreams + Solace - Dreams

What's the difference?

The Crimson Deed

 

It has been canceled, BTW.

Blaze (Doom Engine, by Twinbeast, of Cybershade fame) 

Seems dead. Amusingly, its IndieDB page lists it as released, but the game it matched to it seems entirely unrelated (and is made in Unity anyway).

Poharex: The Second Invasion 

Explicitly a Doom mod. Though there's a video of it in Heretic as well?

Regular Day

From all the stock Doom textures I see in the screenshots, I don't feel this really qualifies as standalone.

HaloDoom

On its site, it's presented as a "Halo mod in Doom 2"

Here's some other freeware standalone games I found:

Decadence

Kid 4 $29.99 - TerminusEst13's 7DFPS Jam Entry, despite saying it needs Doom 2, it doesn't need it at all.

Zombies Ate My Neighbors TC - Despite saying TC, it is actually standalone, using .ipk3, has been in development for almost 6 years.

EDIT: I.M.Meen TC - Uses .iwad extension, basically a remake of that old edutainment game, but without the education part.
EDIT 2: Nido Force - An action-platformer made in GLOOME engine for the same contest Nocturne In Yellow was in.

I couldn't be sure of the latter as they seem to use specific ZDoom engines for both. But The Cenote certianly.

Sorry, this was a copy paste. Solace and Solace Dreams are (or were?) two separate titles, Solace Dreams being the successor.

That is a incredible pity because it looked extremely impressive, bearing the Batandy Seal. Shame. Atleast there is a demo.

Twinbeast had a string of new games but very few were ever completed. A case of many idea's, but little finishes.

From what i recall there was a post stating it was to go standalone. But that was years ago. (I do this quite often, eh? ''I seem to recall'', ''I think that..'' Little snippets of memories, because there was a reason why i listed them as standalone.

This one is the kind of standalone like Grezzo 2 is. Standalone, but full of copyrighted stuff. It also belongs to that same level of gaming.

This one was to go standalone.

 

Glad i was able to help. :)
 

Thanks by the way for pulling this legwork and your extensive knowledge on not only this matter but generally anything else Doomrelated. A somewhat definitive list will work well for both ZDoom and DoomWiki.

 

One other would be Thrust TC, although that still needs Doom IWAD. It was a mixture of both a (rather impressive) early port, and a standalone game.

Hedon 2 is now out as well, although both games are bundled together commercially and can't be purchased/downloaded separately, so up to your discretion whether it counts as another item for the list.

Somewhat related, but the game Radix: Beyond the Void (published in 1995) has been converted to the Doom engine by Jim Valavanis using his port DelphiDoom as a base: RAD Engine. It's a backdoor into the Doom world, but it's worth thinking about.
