Dark Fate 2 — for Doom II
by Karthik Abhiram [Titlepic]

Dark Fate 2 is a sequel to my 2003 map Dark Fate, and is done in a similar hellish style.  It began as a small speedmap last year, that I never got around to finishing.  However I picked it up in early 2008 and worked on it over a couple of weekends, and made it look nice.  Due to lack of a better title, I named it Dark Fate 2.

Description and Screenshots [now in glorious widescreen!]

This is a very small and linear map.  The map will take you on a circular path, with more of the level opening up as you play.  Finally, jump outside, get the yellow key and exit.

Have a look at some screenshots below.  The level also supports deathmatch play (though that hasn't been tested extensively) and should be fun, so try it out.  There are a few music and graphical replacements, and a couple of extras are provided in the ZIP file as well.

Commentary Video

Watch the Dark Fate 2 Commentary Video on YouTube

There is a ten-minute video available where I play through Dark Fate 2 on Skill 3 on my laptop.  This video also has a commentary on the level by me, and if you are interested in watching it, you may do so here (hosted at YouTube).  This is more for non-Doomers (as this is a very small level, a player doesn't really need a walkthrough!), but others may be interested in watching too.  Varun helped me set up the camera initially.  It's a slightly weird angle but that was the best way to get both the screen and myself into the frame!  I have a higher resolution (640 × 360) MPEG file of this, but that's 140 MB in size.  Any suggestions on how to make it available are welcome.


  • Main level music: "The City Streets" by Robert Prince, from Duke Nukem 3-D
  • Title music: "Mortal Kombat: Game Over" sequenced by ZeroBeats
  • Intermission music: "Still Alive" by Jonathan Coulton, from Portal, sequencer unknown (downloaded from vgmusic.com)
  • Titlepic, Credits, Help, Intermission pic: Made by me, based on a drawing of mine

"DVD" Extras (doesn't everyone love those?)
