The brilliant Doctor Octagon has been kidnapped! Square must find him, and rescue him from the clutches of the Circle of Evil, a mysterious cult hellbent on the domination of Shape Land. He will square off against terrible monsters and impossible traps in order to prove that he's no square when it comes to justice. Guide him to the center of the Circle's domain, unravel their malicious plot, and win the day fair and square.

Be there and be square!

What started out as an attempt by my brother to make the most awfully generic children's cartoon character ever has now become... this. Somehow.

The Adventures of Square is planned to be a full total conversion for the ZDoom engine, making extensive use of DECORATE and UDMF to create a whole new world completely separate from that of Doom, but keeping more or less the same fundamental gameplay mechanics that make Doom such a fun and loveable game - as in, run into rooms, shoot enemies, make them explode, get weapons and finally beat the big badass.

Expect goofiness - that particular dial has been cranked up to 11. The cartoony art style is something I've wanted to try for ages in a first-person shooter engine. The mod features a plethora of villainous geometrical characters, and let's not forget that there will be geometry puns aplenty.

Are you squared away for adventure?

Er, right -- this looks neat! I'm just hoping it's not another wad about pot. The titlepic makes me think of a stoned Tommy Pickles :P

No psychotropic substances were consumed in the making of this mod.

Much. :P

Does this mod involve any combat? Because it would be cool if this was exploration focused.

lizardcommando: I have. :P Some of the sprites are incredibly old, though, and they showcase my overcreative 15-year-old mind at its very most unhinged. You have been warned. :lol: (Also a few of the monsters are missing proper death frames, which I may or may not rectify, depending on how arsed I can be to do so.)

JustinC: Heh, we've already talked briefly about textures. :) We do have similar art styles.
