..... Something Wicked This Way Comes.

I speak, of course, of the 11 map-set that I have have been developing for vanilla/Chocolate DooM. I am working on the last of the maps, after which the game will undergo alpha and beta testing. I'm hopeful for a 2017 release, but stay tuned. More details are at DooM Nexus.

EDIT: The game has been released. The game may be downloaded here. The textfile may be reviewed here.

This is certainly interesting. Looks like Doom 2 with some improvements. I would not mind giving this a try. :)

The four screenshots here look exactly like some of the levels early in the Doom 2 episode. What changes/improvements have been made to them?

I feel like that could be answered pretty simply by just playing Doom 2 again, considering "exactly" is exactly the wrong word here.

Aw, crap! I must have accidentally uploaded pictures of DooM II.

But setting levity aside, the levels are intended to be an homage to the original 10 maps of DooM2. I have used comparable texturing, some of the geometry resembles that of the originals (as people have pointed out above), and the enemy types are consistent. However, the map design of each map is completely different from the originals, the progression is different, and the gameplay (particularly traps, etc.) varies significantly. Think of it as UAC's loony competitors building bases on the other side of the planet.

Did a quick play-through of the first 3 levels. At the 4th I died and stopped the video because my computer and net would not be able to handle too large of a video, sadly. >_<

And yeah - the audio is crap. Sorry. I'll have to remember to adjust my audio settings next time I record. >_>

Playing through this right now and it's pretty good. I like the connections between the maps, like map01 and map02.
