Description: After thinking of how cool wireframes are, I thought to myself: "Gee, I wonder how would Doom look if the textures were made to look like they're wireframes!" This is the result.

As you've probably noticed, there are 3 colors of wireframe. Green are the normal walls. Red are used on textures often used for interactable things (namely: switches, doors, elevators). Lastly, blue ones are used on "liquid" textures, as they often are set to damage the player, so don't be surprised when a floor melts you. =P

Cool! Different color for the skies would be nice.x
Good concept, well executedx
Hmm... I've seen most of this about 20 years ago, so it's not original at all. I do remind having played a level (don't know the name anymore, it's too long ago) build around this concept; after having played it for 10 minutes, you've just seen it, and won't play it again. Mostly because it is too monotonous. Besides that, avoiding very ugly texture misalignments dramatically limits a level builder to using a very large grid, so details are gone. 2/5 for raising the idea.x
It's an interesting idea, but needs to be developed further. Quite simply, it's boring to have exact same texture/color everywhere on every map. And skys could benefit from special treatment. I think an earlier mod did something similar but took it farther. Was called 8-bit deathmatch or something?x
5/5 I love this type of stuff. one time i did something similar with the blue tech and wolfenstein stone wall but it got kinda boring. but this wireframe idea worked out surprisingly well. wow. 5/5x

that's a pretty interesting concept, very retro-stylish! Playing this with some chiptune and 8-bit sounds will be awesome!x
Whoa, this looks surprisingly good. I bet you can base a whole mapset on textures like this.x
