I don't really get it. Is the atmospheric experience enhanced that much by being able to yell "fuck yourself!" and flip off an empty room?

 

myhouse.wad is greatly enhanced by roleplaying being off your psychosis medicine, yes.

If you’re going to try gamejacking you could at least read the last couple pages of the thread where we already figured out who A is.

Starting to wonder if I should have pitched to veddge a BD checker. I keep putting too much faith into people.

Heh, you know it'd be pretty great if the map instantly teleported the player into the backrooms area if they have Brutal Doom loaded.

Tell you what, I've always loved abstract horror that ARGs/Analogue can deliver, been watching this entire thing unfold and been enjoying the mass speculation, watching people track down clues and find bizarre secrets.

 

Hell I really enjoyed the video essay posted earlier.

 

Haven't properly interacted with the thread because I prefer to just watch most ARGs unfold and have it all explained to me, I is a simple guy afterall.

 

Most of the information, if not all, has been found and well documented and I'm gonna applaud the people who actually did engage, great shit boys.

 

Just one burning question remains however...

 

Why the fuck are we playing this in Brutal Doom?

trying not to be condescending here but I feel like there's a fundamental you're not really grasping here.  and I'm not sure if english is your first language so I apologize if you don't know what I mean by that.  basically though, you're used to Doom as a purely action experience, which of course the actual game is, and Brutal Doom specifically leans into that.  but, just because Doom, the original commercial product, is meant to be purely action, doesn't mean everything that comes out of the Doom modding community has to be purely action as well, and this mod very much isn't.  this is a narrative experience where you're meant to go through the mod on its own terms, and Brutal Doom completely defeats the purpose of that experience.  if, as I presume, you're someone who isn't really familiar with Doom mods that are about something other than action, then maybe you simply heard the large amount of hype surrounding this map and decided you had to play it too, but because you're only familiar with action, you assumed you could and should play it the way you play other any other hyped up mods.  the thing is, to a certain extent, you need to not only understand that there -is- hype, but -why- there's hype.

"HELP ME ANNA" appears on the departing flights schedule in the airport!  It's hidden in the flight numbers and the misspelled "Cancelled" flights.

It's suspected to be this.

Of all the riddles in this map, I do wonder why this one has to be solved though. So many parts of myhouse invovles filling in the details yourself from a broad outline of the concrete narrative, so it feels kinda werid for that specific detail to be revealed just this once in the map, but it doesn't substantially increase what we already know about the relationships invovled. Why would it matter if it were "Anna" or "Alice"? I'm a bit hung up on this part.

Edit: I'll get you next time, ShallowB you ninja!

oh right I remember when the airport thing was first noticed, but I guess I forgot the significance because, as Catpho said, it doesn't really feel all that significant?  unless there's other things I've forgotten (entirely possible), there's no one named Anna in the journals or obituaries, so what is that supposed to actually tell us?  (no one named Alice either, and I wasnt aware that was a new theory either?)

yeah I figured you were referencing that account, but I also assume that account is trying to bait us into some new theory, given its a 3 hour old account and that's their only post lol

Yeah I don't think there's any more to it than just giving us a name to go with the initial.  I was just pointing out that whoever that is trying to inject their own fanfiction didn't even bother to get involved beyond maybe watching a playthrough or two first, because as far as I'm aware that particular detail hasn't made it to YouTube yet.

Especially with how BD players think they are ultra macho and can tear *anything* apart. There are *things* in this world that a gun cant defeat..

I'm a game developer so I've been having a ton of fun looking through the pk3 for interesting tidbits. Among them: a credits file with names of people whose assets were used as well as some artists/playtesters.

 

Of course, don't open this unless you want to potentially spoil things. Unsure exactly how revealing this is...

I'm not sure ANNA is meant to be part of the same sentence as HELP ME.

 

The way the airport is the place where the trans theme is quite blatant with the whole bloody bathroom and sign swap thing, and that "ANNA" is written out of misspelled "CANCELLED" notices, combined with the S+A hearts on the tree, seems to imply Tom used to be known as Anna. Tom coming out as a transman may also be why the baby crib in the mirror house "was not meant to be".

A small 'mistake'/curiosity:
 

Spoiler


In the secret obituary image from the QR code, it shows another obituary for a man named Norman Edward Penske. Not only did Norman die in February 2023 (which makes no sense to be on the same page as Steven's obit from 2022) but curiously a real person named Norman Edward Fenske did die at the end of January of this year.

Jesus christ, I saw a tweet from a publisher a couple days ago, wondering why House of Leave was all of a sudden #1 on amazon contemporary literature, to be met with a reply about myhouse and that powerpak video.  Sure enough I had to check and House of Leaves was indeed #1.  Mark Z. Danielewski, also tweeted out about the video on myhouse.

 

 

Did a fucking doom wad push a 20 year old book up to #1?

I bet the author at first was completely bewildered and was wondering why the fuck was his 20+ year old book selling like hotcakes again all of a sudden lol.

But yeah definitely one hell of an achievement and now easily the biggest mod since Brutal Doom, guaranteed a cacoward by the end of the year.

Will be interested to see if Romero or some of the original id devs get their hands on it and what they think of it.

instead of thinking I'm asking why I can't play, please do read the messages before to understand I answered another user with a remark question...
I know I can play with BD or PB, I just wrote that I can earlier.

I'm on my second (third?) run now, after getting Ending 0 and 1.

Spoiler

Essel's track is absolutely *perfect* for when you cross the mirror into a shadowy version of the house, its like you really have crossed into another realm entirely, really makes the skin crawl. It works less well in the doomed paths, when you jump into the Brutalist House early, but it still conveys 'oh dear, where the hell am I and how did I get here? Let me out D:'

Also Jimmy's broken Running from Evil still got my nerves going, despite knowing exactly what goes on in House 2 this time.

The evil closet still makes my guts twist everytime I open the door, but it has not opened into the labyrinth yet. I imagine that after ive seen the contents myself, it will feel a little less nauseating to be near
