Doom II: 25 Years of Earth - 6-map demo release!

Download the six-map teaser/demo! (Google Drive download)

In 1994, the world was changed for the better, when, on September 30th, id software released Doom II: Hell on Earth. Super Shotgun in hand, we took on more interesting, tougher foes over thirty(-two) levels in a continuous campaign, unlike any Doom experience we'd had before. 25 years later, we're still playing, in some way, shape or form.

I'm here to pay tribute to that. Full disclosure, though, I'm late. I wanted to drop a 32-map campaign on the world, using every line action and sector effect at least once and largely sticking to stock resources whilst doing so. I'm 18 maps into that goal and, as you can see on the URL above, I'm making six of them available to play now!

They have all difficulties implemented and should run on basically any limit removing port. Jumping and crouching are disabled by default and would allow you to break progression, so please avoid that! Mouselook is fine with me, though, and as it's all stock, you can use game play mods and the like too! Multiplayer isn't implemented, however. I've tested with GZDoom and prboom+ (default complevel)

Skies are by Mechadon, from his "Mek's Box o' Skies", which is an awesome resource that I highly recommend. I've plucked a silver set of 64x64 computer panels from ZDCMP2 that I think was made by Adelusion, but do correct me if I'm wrong there. MIDIs are variable quality covers of songs I like that have influenced the design of some of the maps, or were picked due to go with the name or theme of the map. Can't say who they're by, as the various MIDI websites online and the file metadata never revealed this information.

Here's some screenshots:






I'm aiming for a mid-October release for the whole thing now, so hopefully this gives you a reason to look forwards to that!

Really good stuff right here, nice small set of maps, that you can breeze through in a few minutes. Looking forward to the full release.
