Zero Day (MP3 edition)
Description
*This version of Zero Day includes an optimised, MP3 soundtrack with custom instruments. If you'd like the vanilla MUS-file edition, its in zeroday.zip, which you should find in the same location. This was developed as a companion piece to a novel I'm currently marketing - Zero Day. I chose to develop it in Doom because I wanted something I could distribute freely and easily, as a whole package. Zero Day, the Doom addon, sees you travelling across a fictionalised west coast of the U.S.A., fighting demons, allegedly in search of the lead protagonist from the novel. The novel begins in the midst of political turmoil as reluctant political figurehead, poster boy and rockstar, Jeremy Government, vanishes from the public eye. There's nothing left of the Earth but desert, in most places, and cities are ruled by board meetings, ideals towards serving "the common good," and a concise anti-capitalist regime. Citizens are suffering, and rebel forces plot against it in the darkness. Jeremy surfaces amidst them, and, learning a few hard truths, he joins their campaign. They plant a bomb in a government building, while Jeremy makes a short public appearance, albeit, in the ensuing chaos, Jeremy is shot live on television, sparking a revolution.

  Began development on several
                          Doom levels in past years but the BSP I was using 
  ripped up my maps before they were completed.
