ππ€πŒπ„π‹π„π’π’ - a single map for GZDoom

Damn

That's a good one

First, the visuals, between green and purple, gives a very cool atmosphere, and the monsters went along with the color palette very well.

The midi was at the end a bit redondant.

For the gameplay, exploration is the main attraction, since there is only rarely some nasty fights.

I had some trouble finding the last gem, but that's just my fault.

The custom weapons were nice, but the BFG replacement felt a bit weak.

And there was one thing I didn't get, at some point, we can see a guy holding a SSG. He didn't gave it to me, no matter how much i've bonked him, I tried to shoot him, I saw he was bleeding, so I kept shooting, and at some point, he disappeared, leaving no SSG and opening a door. What just happened here?

Overall a very good map.

Oh shit. You should definitely not be able to kill him. He's meant to be a static, useable decoration. You grab the SSG by pressing "use" against him, which gives you the weapon and opens the door to the next room.

RC2 will address the problem here - I recently dropped the +SHOOTABLE flag from him so he doesn't eat up your ammo and this should remove the side effect of being able to completely destroy him. Whoops!

Genuinely asking. I didn't know what those "cool features" are exactly. But on the example of Heartland for The Eternity Engine you can see that it's possible to have such cool features without pseudo-Doom gameplay.

3d models, 3d geometry/3d floors, zscript, slopes, polyobjects, ... the list goes on and on

this map looks interesting, I am sure it will be very inspiring... especially the encounters, its an area I really need to work on in my own maps

Such an amazing adventure. There were several moments were I had to detour just to enjoy the exploration (6/10 secrets found), but

most of the times it was easy to backtrack or take alternative lifts/paths. It was a very interesting hour (approx), one of my favourite maps

of the year for sure, tasteful work.

@SilverMinerΒ Well done, lol. You can actually break the map even quicker with a well-coordinated straferun from that high walkway surrounding the sun pillars, and then you can RJ pretty easily into the cave after going through the first wooden door by the body pile.

Β 

Guess there's not much I can do about a RJ-based skip like thatΒ aside from disable freelook outright, which I don't really want to do.

Finally got around to playing this, and I have to say, what a fantastic map!

For me the standout part of this was the music - it was really enjoyable to listen to throughout, never got tiring and suited the map perfectly. The gameplay here is stellar, coupled with the new sprites and sounds and minor changes to the enemy and weapon behaviors, it feels fresh and enjoyable while remaining very familiar. The secrets were enjoyable to hunt for (I found a decent potion of them, including the realms deep/pyrocannon one).

Β 

The only issue I found was the ability to bypass the 3-key-fight by doing an SR50 from this point to the bridge:

All in all, a fantastic release!

Thank you for allowing us to play this beautiful atmospheric map with an epic 8-minute song and lots of original content. I haven't got to the endΒ yet because it's a pretty long map but I'm attaching below an abstract fan-art cover editΒ that I made for "Nameless".
