Irkalla - An 11-map wad for Doom II (complevel-9/Boom)

Post by -Stormwalker- »

M_DOOM.png
Irkalla is a pseudo-reimagining of Doom I Episode 3: Inferno, except in the Doom II universe. Expect a lot of surprises and subversions of expectations. It includes map contributions from the incredible level designers Peerdolius, Phobus, and SuperCupcakeTactics. The wad is boom-compatible and should work correctly in -complevel 9. Jumping and crouching are highly discouraged, as they can break the levels, and honestly freelook is also discouraged as well, as this is meant to be an old-school Doom experience. This wad is now on /idgames! Enjoy!

Map 01: Dark Fortress - Stormwalker
Map 02: Valley of Sorrow - Stormwalker
Map 03: Chaos - Phobus
Map 04: Den of Suffering - SuperCupcakeTactics

Neat! Have you considered making a pseudo-reimagining of all Doom 1 episodes, except in the Doom II universe, next?

Awesome, thank you! I hope you enjoy it! I'd love to hear your thoughts - good or bad. :D

Haha, I'd love to, but finding the time would be a challenge. It's certainly a great idea though, and I wouldn't rule it out. :)
