Not content with a life of toil working the dessicated soil, or a short one fighting in the militia, you are a scavenger, junker, Stalker. The names are many, but the profession remains the same - searching the lost remnants of the old world for whatever valuables you can find. The people around you fear you for what you are and what you may someday bring back. You are a thief, a scoundrel. Without you, humanity would starve. But remember that the old world will not give up it's treasures easily. Bringing back something worth the risk is a miracle. Coming back alive is a success. Everything else is fate.
Ashes is a Post-apocalypse themed Total conversion, designed to be run in the Gzdoom or Qzdoom ports, and includes support for either software or hardware options. Set decades after a worldwide catastrophe has reduced most of the country to toxic wasteland, the player takes on the role of a scavenger searching the ruins of "The City", a once thriving metropolis, for valuable items. Add bands of mutant cannibals, limited ammunition, and a mysterious group of gas-mask wearing para-military types prowling the rubble.
Heavily inspired by 90's FPS games, 80's post-apocalyptic movies, and a shit-ton of other references, Ashes will be designed to either run as a weapons mod, a map-pack, or as a full conversion, depending on the modules downloaded and run.
The first episode will follow the basic framework of Ultimate Doom - every weapon has been replaced up to plasma rifle, 8 new monsters, and a full custom soundtrack courtesy of PRIMEVAL of this very forum. The (planned) second episode will include a lot more content than the original Doom, but I wanted to put out a "shareware" episode to get some feedback.
Community notice - You can now preview and preorder the full soundtrack of this mod, composed by Primeval/John S. Weekley. It's in full mp3 quality, and sounds amazing!
DISCLAIMER: This mod is a homage to 80's movies, Doom online culture and modern PA fiction, with all that entails. As such some of the situations it portrays are mature in nature. The Ashes universe contains bloody graphic violence, references to drug abuse and cannibalism, and strong language. It's not a nice place to live.
