TLDR: An underwater facility (Donas) PSX-DooM ispired.
Something bad happened... You are alone, fight for your life.

HI, this is my first project that I want to post a project. It's a pretty simple map for now, I think the first of a small episode that takes place in the deep of an underwater facility.
It's inspired from the PSX-DOOM and I like the tone but there are a lot of stuff that can be improved. So before i want to start with the other levels I just wanted some feedback :)
(soz for my english XD)





Spoiler:




Download: DONAS VERSION: 0.1

IMP: the file is pretty big(8MB) for different reason: custom music / custom sounds and some texture not used because it's a starting project. Sorry for the inconveniency.

I enjoyed this. It's dark and moody and presents a nice medium level of challenge and size. Supplies of ammo and health seemed about right - generous but not excessively so. I thought that the sounds, textures and music worked well. I also liked how the map was the right size to accommodate a bestiary of stock monsters without them feeling too limited. Overall, it was nicely balanced IMO. Is it seriously your first released project? It certainly plays like something from a mapper with more experience than that.

I mentioned that it is dark - and it is. However, I don't feel that it should be brightened, but the next time I play it I will probably do so with a flashlight mod of some sort which I feel would enhance the moodiness rather than detract from it.

Thanks for the feedback, it's not my first map but it's the first i want to publish :)
I have tried a lot of different style but i always end up with something too dispersive so i decide to do something 'small' and then espand it a little bit with other maps.
My idea is a small episode with like a few maps, not too many because it can be boring for the style and I want to try different things with the next maps in the same 'setting'

Honestly this is quite good. Even without custom textures, the atmosphere of the map really shines. I really did like the red/orange room arena at the end, especially the part where it lights up after the final switch. My only nitpick is that it can be a bit a bit dark during that fight, but I guess that's the point. Looking forward to more of this style.
