An Italian Clone of Michael Hardy. Something to get worried?

Post by Sergeant_Mark_IV »

In a short resume, this guy picked up EVERY ZDOOM MOD made in the last 10 years and mashed up in a single thing. From Zblood to Brutal Doom. From Action Doom 2 to Doom Center.

While he announces the "demo" to be free (by this can we expect the final version to be paid?) the guy asks for donations.
Why this one is something more dangerous than Michael Hardy? Because this guy actually has a lot of fans. His videos have around 30k views, and he has a Facebook page with 10k likes. If this guy is really making money with our stuff, shouldn't we be concerned about it?

i'd say he's the italian Gary Acord.

Since he's selling stuff that depends on fmodex, Firelight could unleash some wrath.

Holy shit -- just watched the "trailer" on his site, and the "mod" is so batshit insane that it crosses the line twice and becomes fucklarious. Not that he doesn't need to be stopped, of course. :P

Do you want me to translate what does he say? xD

Seriously, he seems frustrated by the religion in his small town...

You know, seeing the Doom 2 shotgun and Doomguy hands in there... if he does start charging for his crap, and you wanted to play dirty, you could probably shoot a friendly, anonymous email tip to Bethesda pointing out that some dude's selling their stuff as his own.

Just as I suspected. He is going to sell this game for 6 euros. The cover art's WIP.

Independently of the moral/ethical/legal issue about grabbing mods and resources and selling them; I really don't understand why anyone would spend money to buy that. It looks ugly, a confusing mess of mismatched parts; the modding equivalent of the misshapen homonculus crawling out of the mad scientist's vat and whose first and last act is to look at you with pleading eyes and whisper "killlll meeee" in a gargling voice.

What I'm trying to say is that it looks horrible on all aspects.

This is... How the... I don't even...

Its a horrendous mishmash. Its an insult. It also looks like this guy's got some pent-up anger issues he needs to deal with.
I'm not sure who should be more ashamed: the 'creator' of this, or the fools that are actually interested in it.

Probably worth pointing out that the site has some images that are NSFW.

Good lord, that was god-awful.

Looking through his site and his facebook page, I gotta know: how old is this guy? I hope to hell he isn't over the age of 15. A lot of the stuff on that page is pretty disturbing.
