I'm sort of back from the dead. Here's my newest finished project:
Akoopasoup - Free Lyle is a three map WAD for Doom 2 with classic Doom gameplay. It requires a ZDoom-based port like Zandronum or GZDoom to run. The maps can all be pistol started, have been tested thoroughly and can be quite tough. I've made sure to include all difficulty settings
Designed for no crouching and no jumping, Freelook not required. Cooperative play is possible, but not tested.
Gameplay time: Map01 & 02 - 10 minutes each, Map03 - 30 to 45 minutes.
Demons have blasted through your house wall and took your pet turtle Lyle. Fight your way to the infested Tech Citadel that poisons the skies and rescue your friend.
I've been working on this little project since 2014, but only did serious progress in the last 4 months, when I decided to finally finish it. Map03 was the first one I worked on, but was the last I've finished, because I changed it a lot over the years, it is also the largest of the three.
The WAD features a Doom-style soundtrack by YouTube musician JD Herrera https://www.youtube.com/user/az0919 . I've rearranged and edited his music to fit the gameplay, his music was the main reason why I wanted to continue my work.
The custom textures in this WAD are from Lunatic.wad by the legendary Skillsaw. I used his wad as a base to learn how to put a wad together in the first place, though I honestly still suck ass at the whole editing thing and it's a wonder that it all worked out in the end.
This is my second WAD release, my previous one from 2013 is called HAM.wad and can be found here: https://mega.nz/file/HtlnnQyK#y6_YTQzsFbXVtIR8JKaElagyyezczma3TOcugUcK4vs
I hope you guys enjoy my little project.
Also before anyone asks, I have no active video projects going ... and C&C Remastered is actually shocklingly well-made, one can only wonder how EA will manage to fuck up the next remastered releases, because it's in their blood to do just that.
