Description
This map is heavily inspired by Episode 4 of The Ultimate Doom, especially E4M1 and E4M6. It was originally made for a project called The Ninth Gate that never saw the light of day. Most of it was made (on and off) during 2001-03 using DoomCAD (the exit area was built using Doom Builder though). I didn't know you could select multiple linedefs in DoomCAD back then, so I was actually insane enough to manually select each and every linedef, apply the texture and align it. If only I had that kind of patience/time now :) The map is very straightforward (too straightforward maybe?), so you shouldn't have any problems finding your way. The level music is from Duke Nukem 3D, the other tracks (which are awesome IMO) were composed by Damian Lee. Note: The lava in the map doesn't hurt, it's used for artistic purposes only.

Description             : This map is heavily inspired by Episode 4 of
  The Ultimate Doom, especially E4M1 and E4M6.
  It was originally made for a project called
  The Ninth Gate that never saw the light of day.

  Most of it was made (on and off) during
  2001-03 using DoomCAD (the exit area was built
  using Doom Builder though). I didn't know you
  could select multiple linedefs in DoomCAD back
  then, so I was actually insane enough to
  manually select each and every linedef, apply
  the texture and align it. If only I had that
  kind of patience/time now :)

  The map is very straightforward (too
  straightforward maybe?), so you shouldn't
  have any problems finding your way. The level
  music is from Duke Nukem 3D, the other 
  tracks (which are awesome IMO) were composed
  by Damian Lee.

  Note: The lava in the map doesn't hurt,
  it's used for artistic purposes only.

Advanced engine needed  : Requires any limit-removing source port.

Other WADs by me        : (1) The Anomaly: Part II
                          (2) Short 'n Quick
                          (3) Short 'n Quick 2
                          (4) Reanimated

Special Thanks to       : Pablo Dictter and Opulent for beta-testing and
                          very useful feedback.

                          Karthik Abhiram for testing the level at
  the lower skills and for general suggestions.

  Damian Lee for the awesome music.

                          You guys for playing!
