Burden Of Flesh - 7 map episode wad released!

Post by zVOITTO »

Burden Of Flesh is a set of 7 highly challening maps with vanilla style gameplay designed for single- and co-op play. The gameplay is a mix of exploration and combat challenges including but not limited to: Revenant boxing, Archvile BBQ and Cyberdemon Ping Pong and the levels vary from medium sized to pretty fricking huge. The visual style of the levels vary from map to map, with the unifying theme of All Kinds of Hell. The maps were heavily inspired by such wads as Sunlust, No Chance, Stardate duology, and Sunder to name a few. All but one map (MAP07) were first part of GERMS megawad project (Check it out here: viewtopic.php?f=42&t=65498) which is still fully in development and will be updated SOON (tm). While GERMS is fully a group effort, these maps were designed solely by Arse of team ZVoitto. I felt like these maps were good enough on their own to be a working and fun mapset with a matching visual- and gameplay style.

The Wad works on everything past ZDoom 2.8.1, such as GZDoom and Zandronum.

DOWNLOAD BFlesh.ZIP (updated DropBox link)

This file has been DMCA'd twice now, get it quick before the feds get it

Difficulty PSA:
I would recommend first playing on Hurt Me Plenty or easier since Ultra-Violence gets downright Masochistic, as intended (but that wont stop you from trying, you freaks.) Pistol starting levels is optional, although it offers the best experience in terms of challenge and balance. Jumping and crouching may break levels, so it is not recommended.

Check the included .txt for additional information including credits and thanks.

Any criticisms, feedback, and comments are highly appreciated!

I must admit that I looked at this post several times and thought, eh that is just another one of 'those', but finally downloaded this pwad. Oh heavens to Bettsy, I would have missed a jewel.

Great architecture, great texturing, great teasers, but is it ever tough to beat. I had to inch my way forward with many savegames. I played it several times, with the same result, I died many times before the end.

Thanks for a great gaming experience. :thumb:

I love how you're able to create just "something", your creativity seems to be so limitless. It's like abstract art sometimes but despite the crazy style it all fits together somehow (I just finished map6). I dont know why I like it so much. It feels so effortlessly. Very inspiring. Please keep on tapping into that gold mine that is your brain. :)

Thanks for the motivationBoost my guy! I will make sure to keep on diggin' in this brain of mine for the Doom Communitys enjoyment. Also, Germs will bloat once more soon™ enough with motivation so keep those eyes peeled!

that being said, with map07 you gotta be trolling, like honestly trying to torture players. I know we've been warned. Its too nice to stop playing but for the rift with the pinkies and arch viles alone you deserve a slap in the face. Despite the difficulty I did actually manage to get the yellow key but now I'm stuck in this room:

What to do?

Heidi2, thanks, the map is supposed to be "fun", glad to hear that you made it that far :-). There is a way out f the "cage", although you'll have to look for it. If you're still having difficulties finding it

From what I’ve played so far this is cool! Maps look awesome and the gameplay is intense. You should post this on Doomworld, where it will get more attention!

The google drive download link seems to be broken btw. Says that the file was removed due to violations of TOS.

@NecroPoster, thanks for the heads up 8-) I wonder how it's breaking Google's TOS, just seems strange to me. I have updated the download link now, hopefully Mediafire won't have any problems hosting this. Also as a note all of the maps in this wad are now a part of the GERMS megawad. Get some GERMS here: viewtopic.php?f=42&t=65498

Thanks for the heads up! The wad got DMCA'd again, i think it might be because of some midi file. I will dig through the wad when i have the time. In the mean time, the updated DropBox link is up.
