"Golden Souls not only somehow organically combined the action of Retro FPS with the whimsy of Classic Platformers, but has also set a high standard for that type of medium in which I desire to attempt to match myself with my own projects. It's a chance to go on a magical adventure while holding a shotgun- I couldn't imagine anything more beautiful than that." -Ultra64

--Remastering the past--

Project "Redemption" was inspired by the hub traveling shenaningans of Unloved and unconventional colorful scenarios of the first Serious Sam games as opposed to the usual dark n' gritty in shooters, with a sprinkle of all the things I loved about Nintendo.
That project then became Golden Souls, a humble little beginning for a small modder-wannabe.
After announcing the project I went to celebrate New Year's eve with my parents, I remember pulling the phone out from time to time and checking the comments on the forums, plenty of people were excited for this project and already started giving their input on it.
It was exciting, and it was only the beginning.

Through good times and bad times, Golden Souls has been a big part of my life for 8 years, and while the new games have become something even more unique, I still look back and think of those humble roots, that simple happy garden with the Golden Cacodemon running away from the player, the first Van Gogh inspired map that has become a staple of all my works and the quirky little drawings of Doomguy killing demons to save the day.

My intentions with this remaster are not only to improve on that foundation without betraying what was my vision back then for this project, but also provide an entry point for people that want to experience this mod for the first time and for the people that already played this adventure and want to experience it all over again with a fresh new coat of paint.

I hope you will all enjoy this good old adventure. - Andrea "Batandy" Gori

--Going Super--

"Golden Souls is one of a kind for Doom mods, there was so much passion put into the mod, it made the experience very rich, and given the care put into how Mario's influence can be implemented, it came out perfectly. The extra levels made was made to at least have the same feel as Golden Souls and needed the same love and polish as the maps in the main mod. As well as having fun playing Golden Souls, I also loved bringing new worlds to explore." -Salahmander

Download:
It is recommended to use the latest version of Gzdoom available

What about the old vanilla Golden Souls?
Download for it is temporarily deactivated as I want to avoid any confusion regarding the download of this new Remastered, but don't worry! It will come back under the same page available as a "Legacy Edition"!

Really enjoying Golden Souls Remastered so far! I do have a minor HUD suggestion though: is it possible to display your current inventory item at all times, instead of only when cycling through your items?

I have pushed a little hotfix version that addresses a Big Coin bug in Lucy in the Sky With coins that would prevent you from 100% completing the game.
This hotfix is not compatible with your savefiles, so if you're currently in a run, just keep playing with that version and be aware of this:

When you lower this platform to access the secret flying ship area, collect the big coin there. If you don't and exit it with the other teleporter, that area will lock itself up.

I'd loaded Golden Souls at some point in the past, but didn't finish it. This new release is just the excuse I need to go back through. I'm already a few hours in and it's fantastic! Thanks for putting this out there - it really nails the Doom X Nintendo feeling.

If the HUD doesn’t show it, there are no big coins.

I really hate the delay when firing the revolver... it's almost a half-second from pressing fire to the weapon firing the hitscan. I don't recall the original Golden Souls having this.

The original revolver was also really weak, it's to sell the point that, you know, it's a damn revolver, which is meant to pack a punch. If it didn't have the windup, it would be way too over powered.
