NOVA II Makes a Big Bang

Recommended Posts

NOVA II: New Dawn, a limit-removing community project for Doom 2, has reached its final release. The NOVA series, originally conceived by kildeth and lead to fruition by tourniquet and Doomworld Megawad Club host dobu gabu maru, is a community project designed to foster aspiring level designers to create fun maps in a friendly and constructive environment. It was tested over a four-month period on all difficulties and in cooperative mode. While some maps didn't make the cut for the final 32 slots, it attracted many new and developing mappers, such as AD_79, Pinchy, Jaxxoon R, U.O.D., KevinHEZ, Dave The Daring, Eradrop, jmickle666666666, SFoz911, obake, Cyberdemon531, Breezeep, Noisyvelvet, Egregor, Demonologist, and an_mutt. NOVA II also features several returning guests from the original NOVA, such as cannonball, moudly, mrthejoshmon, Getsu Fune, and joe-ilya, as well as adding Ribbiks and Obsidian into the mix. So now we space Marines have the opportunity to crash through this oppressive new world—alone or with some squadmates—spawned from the minds of some of our favorite level designers, along with some new rare breeds!

Cheers for the article 40. I just wanted to clarify that Dobu was the real leader of the project after kildeth's departure, i just kinda acted as the "techie guy" due to plums disappearance. Makes me rather feel umconfortable to read my name in the first place. Anyway thanks again for the write-up :D

I'm surprised to hear my name as well, I essentially did nothing except keep track of submissions in the first few months of the project lol.

That said, being the founder of the NOVA series and all, if anyone on TeamNOVA 2 wants to go ahead and create a third installment they are more than welcome to. I probably won't return as an alumni though as I've gone off Doom mapping for the time being and might do a standalone project instead if I get back in the mood. Would be interested to see progress on any future NOVAs though.

P.S. - 'NOVA III: Unholy Trinity' would be a cool title for an upcoming megawad. :P

^ Some of the NOVA 2 folks have already started planning the next installment, so no worries there.

To be fair I saw it mostly as half-'n-half, with me handling the business and you being the engineer behind the scenes, so I felt the co-lead stuff was a fair assessment.

I haven't touched Doom in quite some time but Nova II is starting to spark my interest in playing again.
