DBK01: Dungeon Synths (RC2 released!)

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Also, if you want to define a bunch of settings that apply to all maps, like nojump, instead of copy pasting these lines to every map you can just place a defaultmap {} block at the start of your mapinfo. Saves you some headache if you want to go back and make changes later.

This was a great set!  I loved the theme and the music, plus there were some really cool ideas sprinkled throughout.

 

Spoiler

I did encounter one bug in map06 where you can climb behind the switch shown in this screenshot and then fall behind the fence, where I don't believe there's any way out.

Thanks @Vile, glad you enjoyed it! Good catch on that softlock, it'll be fixed in RC2 along with some other improvements. Still have some more playthroughs to watch first...

And the finale. I really enjoyed this mapset. I cannot wait to see more terrific projects from the Digital Bards Krew. Rock on, guys!

That was brilliant guys! One of the most unique Doom WAD themes I've ever played. Especially MAP05 and MAP07 do some original things with the sound, also the final boss is great concept too. I am finishing a longplay video too.

 

p.s. correction, MAP05 (the one with silence areas)

p.p.s. I also make a video as always (wasted too much time trying to find those secrets unfortunately)

Just finished, this was fantastic.  I loved how every map stayed true to the theme.  Something about the atmosphere reminded me a lot of the Spooktober Community Project which is one of my favorite Zdoom specific wads to date.  Can't wait to see more of these, keep it up :)

 

Videos will be up in early August, will post them here then.

So much fun playing this, cool concept. I was wondering if the guys on the texture windows were actually real musicians

and then I found one with Mortiis, everything makes sense now haha. Cant wait to finish the whole set.

Bit late to this party; but thanks for this, a good set as always.
Here's a video of me playing Map 5 (Setting the Tone) in Walp:

This one was my favourite with the sweet use of the silent greyscale areas!

By "soon" I assume you mean two months from now? :P


Hopefully not! Looking more like the beginning of October, although it’s true it’s been especially hard to predict things lately, even by my standards. But one of the motivations for the DBK series was to have something with a less relentless pace, both for polishing and personal sanity purposes XD
