Description: Herian2 is fully compatible with only ZDoom version 1.17 or later.

Herian2 has a simple story line. The setting, time-wise, is prior to the fearsome adventures that were seen in Doom and Doom2 the likes of which has never been see again. Many tales have been told since but, with few exceptions, most although.... perhaps interesting, do not have you quaking with fear like the originals.

Before the days of Doom many of the characters that we came to know in these tales and those of Heretic and Hexen were closely associated with each other. Things were different then. During those days the family of Cyberdemons, for example, were closer to their original form before they were modified (not for the first time), due to necessity, for the injuries they endured. The Imps too were a little different.

Your player character is returning from war with a view to settling down to a quieter way of life. Little did he know that what he had already experienced was only the beginning. In this tale he is about to encounter for the first time the Boss of all Bosses, the most fearsome creature ever created.

Well, history did go onto show that he did defeat him only for him to rise again, although a little betrayal might just have helped in the end.... but how did he do it.......?

32 NEW levels, NEW textures, NEW sounds & NEW monsters

All levels were made for single play. Deathmatch and co-operative play is possible, but then forget about the story and just have some fun. Many of the levels are too large for deathmatch.
Credits: iD-software, Raven & Rogue for: Doom, Doom 2, Quake, Heretic, Hexen and Strife. The authors of Wintex, WARM, BSP, Windeu, DEUSF and Wad Author. Thanks to Randy Heit for ZDoom. For me his work, especially, has given Doom a new lease of life.
Base: New level design from scratch. Exceptions - one was influenced by, but not copied from, my favourite Doom2 level. Same with one secret level that was influenced by a Hexen level. Another secret level is based on an original Herian level that was popular called (Isle City). It has been enhanced with better textures, ZDoom features and some changes and improvements to gameplay.
