V2.0 RELEASED! - Temple of the Lizard Men Remake

Postby Alando1 » Mon May 13, 2019 4:36 pm

Hello, everyone! Would you believe Temple of the Lizard Men will be officially 10 years old by June 23rd of this year? Man, I feel old. The very first Temple of the Lizard Men was released back in 2009. Since I've been updating and fixing the older wads, TOTLM1 hasn't received as much TLC as the others have. Even though I created an update patch to fix some of the problems from the original, I felt it didn't do it much justice. It was time to revamp the first TOTLM and give it the love it deserves.

Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you the Temple of the Lizard Men Remake! This project celebrates 10 years of the series. For some time, some of the most die-hard fans of the series (you know who you are) had requested to play as a lizard man. Initially, I was thinking of doing something like this in TOTLM5 but I felt it wouldn't work. Then I thought, "You know, this would work in a remake of the first TOTLM." As the wad series evolved and improved over time, I can't help but think of all those who gave tremendous love and support to the projects. Not just the fans but to those who had helped shape the wads into what they are today.

First giving a shout-out to Mega Doomer who had inspired and motivated me to continue this series. He had taught me how to make levels fun, challenging, and balanced. Next are those who had helped with beta testing and contributing other cool and helpful things to the series. Those fine people are Tormentor667, RSL, grouchbag, Janus3003, Redead-ITA, Carrascado, Jimmy (for the fonts), and Blue Shadow (for helping to fix the boss HP bar in TOTLM4). (If I missed anybody, I credit you, too)

Additional love and shout-outs to those on YouTube: Larzuk06, LightningBoltForever, Jeff C., Biologic Weapon, Planterota, and many more!
Lastly, much love to all of you in the Doom Community!

Without further ado, please enjoy the gameplay video and also be sure to check out a special project I've been working on at the bottom of the post.

Project Toby: A Doom Accessibility Mod

Just so all of you know, TOTLM5 will be the official ending to the series. It will probably be released in 2020. After that, I won't being doing much more with Doom wads. There is one project, though, I will be focusing on: The Toby Accessibility Mod. In case some of you may not know, Toby, a visually impaired gamer, reached out to me back in May 2017. He had introduced me to a documentary about him called "Gaming Through New Eyes," filmed and edited by Berk Icel (dansg08 on YouTube). After watching the documentary, I wanted to help create accessibility features for Doom. Toby is a big fan of Doom and Final Fantasy. I've been working with Toby himself, YouTuber SightlessKombat, YouTuber Illegally Sighted, and Berk to help create and perfect the Toby Accessibility Mod. If any script experts would like to jump in and help, you can send me a PM. I'll put links to a demo video of the mod and the Gaming Through New Eyes documentary below. Enjoy! :)

This looks awesome. Just one question, will you be able to select the original class as well as this new Lizard Man class?

It was a good game, but it's not my favorite TOTLM game by any means. The main reason being is that it is too Doom-y for my liking, which I imagine was the intended idea from this remake. I'd give it 7/10 as a rating.

Looking forward to TOTLM5. Keep up the good work, sir.

Just finished a playthrough, and I've gotta say that I rather enjoyed this. The levels, while not visually mind-blowing, were well-designed overall, and I never found myself stuck wandering around aimlessly. The gameplay was pretty fun. My only major complaint is the enemy gauntlet before the minotaur boss - never been a fan of those - and the minotaur boss itself, which made the final boss feel almost like a joke by comparison.

Hey guys. Sorry it took me a super long time to reply to your critiques.

@Blue Shadow & MFG38 - I happy to hear you guys enjoyed the wad. I do admit I did make it a little more Doom-y than what one would usually see in a TOTLM game. I had a feeling that there might have been an imbalance between the Helltaur and the Inferno Demon. It always seems like I can't seem to get the bosses in the right order of difficulty... :( Fear not, though. In TOTLM5, the final boss will be a massive challenge and will be harder than the Helltaur. I don't want to spoil too much but I assure you, it will be challenging :)

Thank you guys for the feedback :)

Good ol' Temple of the Lizard men series. Although i haven't played the whole series, but used to intrigue me to play deeply. I apologize, but i'm certainly having fun with the first game. and it's remade even! So far the game is quite great and very new. Storyline and the plot are detailed and impressive enough to sink your eyes into!
Spoiler: here's my feedback for the 1st remake game, if interested.
And that's about it. I might try the sequels later. I used to enjoy your old mods like alando guns, so yeah. I'm your big fan!

I may be late to the party, but it's great to see more Lizardmen stuff! I can't even say how many times I've replayed the first TotLM wad and they've all been pretty good so far. Can't wait to give this one a spin.
