M17 Project: One-Man Mapping Project

Post by MEMEAIDS »

Initiated on May 17th, 2021 (hence the name), the M17 Project is something of a pet project of mine, that has roots in an older, abandoned project from a year prior, that had similar ambitions to this one. In the time between when I abandoned the previous project, to the initiation of this one, I have since grown in my mapping consciousness, and so, I feel more comfortable, undertaking a project of this scale. Ideally, this will end up as a complete 32-level Megawad, though, as it stands, it exists as a six-map beta, with an unfinished Map07 in the files.

The M17 Project contains new levels, new music, new sounds, and new textures.
Each map is made with the design philosophy of offering the player short, concise map design with combat encounters that provide a fair challenge for beginners, while also offering a handful of traps that will keep veterans from getting bored. The ultimate goal of this philosophy, is to promote a pick-up-and-play style that allows users to play for as long as they like, drop the game for as long as they like, and pick it back up, without falling out of the loop.

The WAD, complete with README.txt can be found HERE:
https://www.mediafire.com/file/wskdp04j ... 6.zip/file
(Features Maps 01 through 06, with an unbeatable early alpha of Map07)

Screenshots can be found HERE:

Additionally, a link to the Doomworld post, can be found here, if you would prefer to follow the wad's development, there:

In closing, I would like to say, that I sincerely hope whomever plays this, enjoys what I have on offer, and will stick around for the future of this wad's development!

Note:
Development on Map08 has begun.

No name has been settled upon, as that will come, once the map starts to really take form.

Expect more in the future!
