Holy hell, I can't wait to try it out! It's all so bizzarre and strange... Amazing what can be done with GZDoom!

Kinda cool, you know... well, now I find something very odd and really important to me. NICE!

So, when you'll release beta-version of that piece of extreme mystery? I'm blind idiot, doesn't seen your post about Alpha... =|

I have no words. Sitting with this wad for twenty minutes left me with no words. Maybe a few: deranged, abstract, cerebral, warped. It's definitely interesting, in a technical sense. I'll have to sit down and properly test it later, but there is no doubting the effort put into the effects and code.

I'm thrilled that someone new enjoyed it without it crashing and burning, for once!

It's those damn dev builds, I'm telling you.

Found this on the Ubuntu forums map. I'm using the GZDoom version packaged with the mod. Also, does the FUD launcher actually do anything besides spawn tons of Arch logos that slowly rise out of the floor?

That one is intentional, it is a joke or statement on the character, which you probably know by now. It reminds me of "Memento", a film about memory loss, in which the film developers made several errors on purpose to fit in with the character forgetting things which lead him to make a bad decision.

Speaking of that map in particular, I attempted that map about three times and only managed 98 percent ruined. I'm not sure if you meant to leave some "users" invincible on purpose, but there were a few in the cafe area that just would not die.

Other than that I was floored by this mod, please make more.

The RC car level / map7end2 / blue gloomy area had the player start in the wrong place from testing another area out. This has been changed in a new link. If you don't want to re-download, when that map starts use idclip to go all the way to the west most part of the map. You should see the RC car and a voodoo doll marine of yourself, that was where you were supposed to start. insert snarky comment about bugs here

A lot of the comments so far are vague as to how far you got in the wad. I'm just curious if you got stuck somewhere or hit a game ending bug in a non-development build. I see a lot of wads on this board get two-page long critique hours after it's up. I'm not going to scream about interpretations and am highly ready for some of that critique, or anything outside of "I didn't play this but it sucks". thanks.

I suppose you still need 2% of the forum intact so you can get out without it collapsing on you. Anyway, if it is not clear from the in-game messages, you are supposed to go to the auditorium after you have reached a certain number less than 98, so if you manage to get it that high you are done and can leave!
