Decadence

Post by alekksandar »

Hello everyone! I’m new to these forums, and even though I've been lurking for a while, this is my first post. I’d like to share my project for gzDoom g3.4.1.
This mod draws inspiration from all over the place, but in the end it’s aiming to be its own thing.





Pics:
Spoiler:
DOWNLOAD:
-Note: This IWAD has been developed on an older version of gzdoom (gzDoom g3.4.1), so the gzdoom build is included in the download.
To run, just open gzdoom.exe, don't drag the wad file onto it, this will cause errors!

In case you know what you're doing:

Config file with the key binds and all the doodads:
->https://alekk.art/Decadence/gzdoom.ini

WOW! These screenies look great!

I don't know why, but it reminds me of both Incantation (SNES) and the Hocus Pocus mod; Fantasy and action together.

Welcome to the forums! I hope we can play this mod very soon (at least i just woke up now and haven't seen download links...)

Success to you! ;)

That retro-cute art style is pretty good! Did you make the sprites, too?

Thanks! And yep! :) I did pretty much everything except for the fonts, sounds/music and some advanced scripts such as dialogue and reloading weapons.

Thank you! I haven't played either of those but I do see the resemblance.
As for the download link - I wasn't so sure about putting one out since none of the maps can be actually completed for now, because the player would actually need to go into the map, grab an artifact or do a quest, and trek back to the hub world.
I wasn't so sure people would like a mod like this, so currently I'm only giving it out to close friends to test, but I'll try to put out a download link here as soon as it's in a presentable condition.

Thanks! And yep, most of the stuff was hand-made. One graphic/texture I can remember off the top of my head that wasn't is the water texture, which is just a limited palette retexture of Doom's. But still, even though it looks fun, I'm trying my best to make it fun - make the enemies and weapons balanced, making good maps, et cetera - which I find definitely more difficult than drawing sprites.

I don't think anyone would dish out money for a doom mod, but regardless, I'd have to get people to redo most sounds and music for me since most of it was borrowed from other sources.

Here's a WiP of a new enemy type, since I realized I don't have any flying enemies that fire projectiles. And to justify a bump, I suppose. I'll update the OP with a proper monster/enemy list soon.

They aren't supposed to be powered by gunpowder, due to the medieval-ish / fantasy theme. Maybe they're pneumatic or something.It does look a bit jarring, I admit.

I instantly recognized those drums in the titlemap music. :wink:
