DOOMIUM, one month till fission

DOOMIUM, one month till fission

After going on a trip towards the plains of Eternal Evilness and back, fai1025 got tired of huge adventures with a hidden treasure deep into far-far away shores of Hell. The Fai Slayer realised that travelling wide, desolated bits of Hell just to retrieve a random MacGuffin wasn't for them anymore. That's why they decided to gather a team of Science Slayers to exploit a chaotic and demonic radioactive matter known as DOOMium. Their research team has two months, until the 10th of December, to test and find out how DOOMium will benefit the future of mankind and other thriving people that have to deal with demons and alike on a daily basis.

This community project is a collection of 32 short maps using OTEX 1.1 as their only texture set and are interconnected using the exact same teleports for entering and exiting the level. It started on the 16th of October and there's only less than one month left now.

Prior to this community project, fai1025 also did a 20 maps MegaWAD named Unternity in an attempt to move on from Eviternity as a too big maps MegaWAD. Check the links provided for the community project and Unternity MegaWAD if you want to learn more about this DOOM mapper's past projects.

Doom Wads' showcase channel

Doom Wads' showcase channel

Few weeks ago, I stumbled upon a YouTube channel named "Doom Wads" that uploads one video weekly (+ the month the week is set in) where they show a bit of gameplay from multiple WADs. They display the name of the WAD, the number of maps the WAD has, the author's name and the monster count. If you want to try new WADs, test fresh creations and keep yourself up to date with what's going on, I am confident you will find this channel interesting and useful. Moreover, because the NanoWADMo finishes less than 10 days ago, a lot of WADs were put in the video. First week of November. And here's the direct link to their channel.

The Refinery - Trinity released

The Refinery - Trinity released

Lately I am really enjoying spicing up my old projects from time to time. It's nothing that "I have to" or that time plans demand from me, it's something I can work on when I am interested in doing. For the past year I have been working on a remaster of The Refinery with the title Trinity. There has been some bashing around when it was released in 2012 (let's simply forget about the "Shores of ZDoom" drama) and maybe it was released in a certain rush back then. Anyhow it wasn't released the way it was meant to be so I took the time to finish it up, adjust the gameplay, exchange some actors, add some new content and on top of it all, enhancing it with a 3rd playthrough that totally shuffles the cards again. Give it a try, at least three times before you wipe it of the harddrive again. It might be fun.

NaNoWADMo is over

NaNoWADMo is over

There are many things that are cool about the month of October. Mainly because it ends with Halloween, objectively the best special day earthlings have to offer. The Spook Season has the best vibes, so I guess it’s not a surprise that the NaNoWADMo took place during that month. For those who do not know, the NaNoWriMo (standing for National Novel Writing Month) is a month-long contest but foremost a self-challenge spanning each November in which you try to be consistent enough to compose a story made of 50,000 words on about any topic.

And NaNoWADMo is clearly the same vibes, but with WAD mapping. The goal is basically to map something during the 31 days of October. Well, October is sadly over and so is NaNoWADMo. And oh yeah! People did map WADs! I’m particularly looking forward into trying the WADs from Kam Tovalski, Meowgi, Blue Phoenix, Death Bear, Napsalm and cannonball; but just try them all! There are 17 links in the second message of the event and you can head toward the provided link to discover them.
