YOU'LL float too... in HELL!

Some of you know how I am a hardcore fan of the HTC series to the point where I made many changes to HTC2 for AEons of Death.
It's my pleasure to announce that I've teamed up with Negatronica (formerly Shtbag) to bring you the third installment of the series for all your evil clown destroying needs!

Fight your way through the Clown Void, containing various themes such as tech centers, abstract locations, and highly volatile physics-defying wastelands filled with a familiar Hellish threat, while on a dangerous mission to stop Pennywise from consuming Earth!

HTC3 takes on a different tone from 1 & 2 by going with a "dark ride" vibe - fewer flashy lights and only a few jump scares by comparison, focusing much more on Doom aspects, including gameplay and mechanics.

Includes:
  • 10 new and very powerful weapons
  • 20 (+3 secret = 23 total) levels
  • A whole new slough of dangerous enemies - some of them putting Hell's army to shame
  • Several boss battles
  • Dynamic playthrough*

NOTE: Unlike regular doom levels, the secret maps are not interconnected. You must find them in the regular maps.

Spoiler: Dynamic playthrough info


Spoiler: Media


Spoiler: HTC3 Team


When?
Coming soon! Watch this thread for updates, teasers and a trailer in good time. ;)

I am the creator of the previous happy time circus mods and this is legit. Major Cooke and I are collaborating to create HTC3. I've been working on this for a few years and the project is almost complete - it takes a long time to create sprites and graphics from scratch and am happy that Major Cooke is now helping me with programming, mapping, and ideas while I focus on the remaining graphics and level editing.

It'll be worth more than just one playthrough too.

I'll keep you all informed on when/if we want beta testers. No guarantees it'll happen though.

Looks like a totally cray cray version of IT in Doom... I cannot wait...

Should make a Pennywise Cameo or Boss monster!

Maybe someone should create cosmetic player classes of those kids from the IT movie for COOP play through!

You know, you can replace those Skull Keys with something like Five Nights at Freddy severed animatronic heads as Easter eggs.

You can fight Pennywise in HTC2. Who knows what HTC3 has in store for you~.

Hate to break it to you but this mod isn't co-op centric - at least, it's using ZScript which isn't in Zandronum.

That's the jolly sequel of HTC i really wanted. Feels like the detail got super better and kinda realistic, especially the weapon designs.

Can't wait to float myself down!

Finally, after all those years the third sequel of HTC is coming soon. The details of the textures and the enemies are realistic and creepy.

I can't wait to play it! (Unless if it's beta testing.)

Here's a few screenshots since the above video is low quality. We're going for multiple themes in this series including tech base, dark and creepy, and dark ride (lots of neon colors). I'm glad you guys like the graphics so far.

The third sequel would be HTC 4, since HTC 1 isn't a sequel of itself. :P

Looks awesome
funny I been playing the two maps of Happy time Circus
with the Spawn: Path to Damnation weapon pack, playing a Spawn demon that hate clowns
and it's funny when he says it

I like the style
kinda reminds me of Nightmare Circus on the genesis

I like horror themes of a carnival or circus
like Kiss: Psycho Circus: The Nightmare Child
and CarnEvil the arcade shooting game.
and Nightmare Circus.
