DOWNLOAD ASCENT OF TITAN FOR GZDOOM

NaNoWADMo rolled around again and encouraged me to do a project of my own! This time I chose to tidy up my various maps from community projects that never made it and string them into one coherent episode. It was a far less ambitious target than my last one and still took me all month.

The UAC base on Saturn's largest moon has been invaded by hellspawn, and who's sent over there to deal with it? Yes, it's Doomguy again. This time, another demon leader has gathered hell's forces and is threatening to use UAC's technology against them. You land at the base of Doom Mons and prepare to fight your way up the mountain...

I kept much closer to traditional Doom than I ever have for this - there are no custom weapons or overly ambitious mechanics and it can safely be played with mods!

Thanks to:
scwiba - For encouraging people to make and submit things through NaNoWADMo
knezha - Map screen artwork http://fiverr.com/knezha
Ola Björling (Ukiro) - OTEX textures
Accensus and BillGuy - Additional code/mapping on MAP07/MAP08
Jimmy - For your immense archive of music!

As a bonus I've also made up a little strategy guide booklet like you might have seen for Doom in the 90s :) There's a small fee on itch to get it with the game.

Well made and looking maps all around nice job! also nice intro message that you put as well, i personaly want to get into doom maping casualy but i want to get a more decent laptop first.

Speaking of one problem i do have is that some areas are just toooo dark. but sinse i have to use LZdoom (and i have to use software randering) the resulting lighting way not be the one intended in the first place.

I agree that Ascent of Titan is a great WAD! Atmospheric, interesting and two endings, which is rare in collections of levels.

About the darkness... I do not know: I played with Doom Legacy and there were still dark rooms, but everything was visible normally. Moreover, DavidN wrote that it is necessary to play on GZDOOM!

Well playing in GZdoom is not necessary THAT said it is recomended as it is the one DavidN tested it. plus i have to use soft-ware randering that is likely not helping either.
