Along with Ashes 2063, DMW is the best game of any stripe, including non-DOOM, I've played this year. I hope you explore this world some more!

As Get Phobo said, the power plant used to be longer. There was to be an arena style final encounter where you fought waves of mutants, but it felt really contrived and didn't fit thematically at all.
The nuclear plant was actually intended to cap off level 3, but as you all know ended up as its own separate level. At 3 levels (4 if you count the town), DMW had already outgrown it's initial scope, and I decided that I needed to wrap it up before the scope grew even more.
While I tend to agree that the final part is somewhat lacking, I think it does the job well enough. Any final encounter with the existing bestiary would have been similar to what already exists, but... more. Not necessarily harder, but more tedious. So in the interest of keeping it "short and sweet", here we are.
