Dear Zdoom community,

I would like to introduce my new project I have just finished. A new episode for the first Doom (The Ultimate Doom) called Gehenna.

Gehenna is a single episode for the first Doom (The Ultimate Doom (1995)) containing 9 new maps (8 + 1 secret). I tried to make the maps in the classical vanilla Romero/Petersen style (but I slipped to my own style many times anyway). Also I didn't add any new graphics (except TITLEPIC and couple of others) and I used only stock textures and stock music. The point of this megawad is to pay respect to the very first Doom and demonstrate it's still a fun game even without new assets and advanced Gzdoom effects. Maybe a little bit inspired by the "No End In Sight" and "Doom the Way id Did" megawads. 




Info:
Name: Gehenna
Map Format: Limit-Removing

This was an absolute blast to play. <3 I really like large, open spaces and this mapset featured a lot of them.

Just gonna give my belated short review.

This Episode is FIRE!!! A+++ It does everything right! Absolute blast to play. I think I left a review on Doom World. But for anyone else that sees it here. Get it! Is feels like an official Episode in it's own way.

That's strage... many people tell me the opposite "I hate the ridicously huge spaces!" :D

Glad you like it!
