[Megawad] Back to Saturn X

Postby esselfortium » Fri Sep 02, 2011 11:48 pm

Back to Saturn X is a megawad. A really, really big megawad.

It's entirely decked out with a pack of all new, (mostly) never-before-seen textures, primarily by Esselfortium with some much appreciated work from Ptoing and Xaser.

It's inspired by Quake 2, Doom 64, Darkening E2, Suspended in Dusk, The Plutonia Experiment, and Alien Vendetta all at the same time.

Levels are being designed by a hand-picked team that's so large, it'd actually be silly if I were to write a list of all of them. (I was originally going to, but the sentences were really getting out of hand.)

So, here are just a few of the BtSX mappers to start out with, for now.

Xaser


Don't touch that dial! Stay tuned: in the coming weeks, there will be lots more information about Back to Saturn X, a vanilla-compatible megawad.

How big are we talking about here?

BTW, I like what I'm seeing in the screenshots.

If it's vanilla compatible, then I don't believe it could have any more than 32 levels. Or at the least, any levels past that would not be playable without a source port.

Breathtaking... especially considering it's vanilla.

Yeah, you're right. I guess I missed the part where it was mentioned.

Looks like a nice soup. Good enough to eat with an AEoD snack, mayhap? ;)
