Description: A collection of maps i've been building, polishing & testing the crap out of over the last 8 years or so, made to suit my own taste and originally meant for personal use.

Maps emphasize combat and aesthetics, range from large to huge in size and are densely populated. The campaign starts with a dark/brutalist theme but quickly departs from that formula. Also, M30 is just a regular map. I don't really care for the Icon Of Sin.

Gameplay-wise, slaughter is my personal preference so, yes, though i like variety so expect a fair amount of incidental combat and platforming in between. Jumping/crouching will break many maps, please refrain. Freelook (with autoaim disabled) is expected -likely required- in order to complete the game and experience the architecture. I stuck to Doom2 mapping format in order to make this as mod-friendly as possible.

Gameplay tip: As soon as the music starts, RUN!

I hope you enjoy Ex Inferis, thanks for downloading & playing!
Credits: Insane_Gazebo, Ribbiks, Archi, ArmouredBlood, Dannebubinga, Skillsaw, Josh Sealy, Erik Alm et al for making maps which provided inspiration and motivation to get started with this in the first place. Special thanks to Jonas Feragen for the above and also for kindly allowing me to remake one of his maps from Hell Revealed 2 which is a long-time personal favorite (M29).

Id/Bethesda for Doom 2016 which (obviously) inspired M26.

Berny Estrada for playtesting, input & encouragement. TQEP
