The Doom Update Part II: RecesS and WIP

Wednesday · 7 Jan 04 · 07:16 PM IST | Posted by Karthik | Category: Doom

At Chris Hansen's site, The DooMer's RecesS, he has put up the third edition of his yearly round-up of the Great Doom WADs released...  This is the 2003 Great Doom Releases, and I am proud to say that both my level Congestion Control 2, and Metamorphism, which Brad Spencer and myself made together, are part of the list!  I was looking forward to Chris's list for a while now, because it's always great to look back at all the great WADs released during a year.  And Chris as always, has picked his WADs well!

The second thing I wanted to talk about is Boris's new site called WADs in Progress (WIP for short).  It is a great idea - the site's basic purpose is to help WAD authors show off screenshots of any Doom project that they have under progress, and to receive comments on those by other Doomers.  I registered myself there a few days ago, and maybe I'll put up screenshots of any level I'm making sometime!

On that note, I also saw screenshots of two Doom projects that I am really looking forward to.  The first is Chris Hansen's upcoming In A World, in which he is going to use, as he puts it, some "rarely used texture combinations"!  I know it will be good, so I am waiting for it to get done.  The second is Scythe II, by Erik Alm.  The first Scythe is one of my all-time favourite megawads, so I am really looking forward to the sequel.  Erik mentioned on the WIP page of Scythe II that he has finished about a third of it so far.

Well, that concludes my Doom update at this stage, I look forward to playing many more cool maps in 2004, and I, of course, am going to release some cool stuff too!  I also look forward to downloading several demopacks (awaiting one for Hell Revealed 2)!

I was in the TAPMI Computer Centre when I looked at Chris's list.  Heh, that was where I was when I looked at Doomworld's Best 10 WADs of 2002 to find my Congestion Control in there!

Dark Fate 2 is a singleplayer level for Doom II, replacing MAP01.  It's a small-sized hellish level — and there's a walkthrough video as well.
