WADs in idGames, 2015
50 Shades of Graytall
50 Shades of Graytall is a project designed around creating maps with interesting architecture and gameplay despite being limited to a selection of arguably hideous textures. Started in response to a silly post made in the Editing forum which led I and several others to attempt maps using the (slightly edited) rules in the post, hoping the result would be decent. Eventually opened up to the community and here we are! Hope you enjoy the maps and if you don't hey Doom projects cant be graytall the time
Valiant is a MBF megawad for Doom II featuring 32 new maps spanning 5 themed episodes. Each map is designed to be played from a pistol start, but some effort has been made to support continuous play as well. Additionally, Valiant includes a number of new monsters and weapons implemented through an extensive MBF format DeHackEd patch. As a result, Valiant is not compatible with gameplay mods, and can only be played in ports with full MBF DeHackEd support. At present, these include ZDoom, GZDoom, PrBoom-plus (complevel 11), and Eternity. Zandronum is also supported through DECORATE.
If you just can't get enough of taking pictures of your food and making it look more magenta, InstaDoom is for you! Play Doom with any of the 40(!) official Instagram filters! Memento Mori with Mayfair! Requiem with Rise! Icarus with Inkwell! Alien Vendetta with Aden or Valencia! ALSO INCLUDES: Selfie Doom: Buddy Adding Edition! Indulge your narcissistic urges even in the deepest corners of Hell! With the new multiplayer compatibility, take group selfies in front of famous landmarks! As seen in Le Monde! Note that in any non-ZDoom-based port, the Selfie Stick replaces the BFG, and all chainsaw and BFG item placements are swapped, so you can pick up the Selfie Stick on Map01 ASAP. (Since the Doomguy doesn't have to worry about lugging around the BFG, he can also carry 50% more plasma ammo.) In ZDoom-based ports, the Selfie Stick is a special extra DECORATE weapon bound to the 7 key. ALSO ALSO INCLUDES: InstaDoom DLC Pack 1! Is Instagram too "mainstream" for your tastes? Do you need filters -- er, I mean, "presets" -- that really scream, "I am a hipster"? Do you not care about usability? Then you'll love the new VSCO Cam DLC pack! 17 new filters (er, I mean, "presets") that emulate each of the currently-free filt- uh, presets in the VSCO Cam app! Most of them look like garbage, but they are painfully hip! Sneer at the basic bitches on Instagram with such purposely-obtusely-named presets as A4, B5, M3, and the ever-popular P5!!
Skulldash (Version 1.0)
SKULLDASH OVERVIEW: Welcome to Skulldash, the fast-paced speedrun arcade mod For Doom II. The objective in skulldash is to collect the Skulltokens scattered around each level to unlock the exit. While collecting the Skulltokens you have to race against the clock, as there is a time limit to beat – all while defending yourself from the hordes of monsters from hell. FAST PACED GAMEPLAY: While on the hunt for the hundreds of Skulltokens scattered across the various realms, you’re having to race against the clock! Failure to beat the level in the permitted time will cause you, the player, to be splattered into many pieces. Fear not, however, hidden throughout most levels are many secret areas containing blue Skulltokens, which add a precious five seconds to the clock. LARGE LEVEL SELECTION: With twenty standard levels, four boss levels, five bonus levels, a giant level-hub (and a tutorial) you’ve got plenty of hours of gameplay available! Skulldash takes you to many realms & locations, including but not limited to technical bases, aztec temples, icy caverns, in a submarine, on a series of treetops, in hell, a haunted mansion, a medieval castle, a jungle altar, high in the sky and even in space! BOSSES, SECRETS & BONUS MAPS: Every level has a plethora of secret areas, containing bonus equipment and Skulltokens – keep your eye out if you want to go for 100% completion – when you 100% a full tier of levels, you unlock a bonus level! At the end of each Tier (except the 1st) there is an action packed boss map. Each boss is found in an environment crafted around their strengths and weaknesses. Bosses are often accompanied by hordes of hellspawn to assist them in taking you out. Prepare yourself to face the Lava Golem, the Dark Inquisitor, the Gate Keeper & the Overlord!
Swift Death is an extremely hard megawad, calibrated for speedrunners. I recommanded for novice players to play in "easy" ("Toilet Break", or "Soft Event"). SD is realized in speedmapping sessions, for the most parts of maps. These maps are generally small, and contain on average 75 monsters. They are also compatible for the duel / deathmatch.
