Doom wads by Blood level designers

Recommended Posts

Anyone who has played Blood may be familiar with the names James Wilson and Terry Hamel, both being mappers for Blood. If you haven't known this already, they happened to have some Doom maps of their own, presumably made before joining Q Studios and Monolith Productions. James Wilson has made a few maps, while Terry Hamel only has one known map to his name.

James Wilson
- Theatre of Doom
- Theatre of Doom (Doom 1 version)
- Fearless
- Purgatory
- Return to Purgatory
- Deathmatch 1*
- Full-on Deathmatch Chubbie*
- The Keep*

*Deathmatch only maps

Terry Hamel
- Underground Military Bunker

All of them are worth checking out if you're a fan of Blood. James Wilson's output turned out to be the most challenging (particularly his Return to Purgatory episode), close to the knockabout gameplay style of Plutonia and Hell Revealed, despite the fact that they came before those two megawads. All of the maps are fun, pretty much so as they must have got them the job at Monolith. Highly recommended. Enjoy.

The theater map was quite fun, I filmed playing it for Shovelware Gems series a while ago on my channel.

Jay Wilson?

That was the lead developer from Diablo 3!

Whoa that's awesome! I'm googling the level/game design credits for some famous games and seeing if they have Doom wads on the archives. This could be a lot of fun!

Oh yes, I'm familiar with the Levelord. His Doom maps were unfortunately not that good, IMO. He did better with Duke Nukem 3D and Quake Mission Pack 1: Scourge of Armagon. Jeremy Statz, I never have seen his name credited for Heretic, but I know he mapped for Hexen 2 Mission Pack: Portal of Praevus.

I'm glad you guys are enjoying my find.
