WADs in idGames, 2016
Mutiny (A Doomworld Community Project)
Mutiny is a 16-level, Limit Removing Community Project Episode for Doom 2 intended to be the spiritual successor of late 90's cyberpunk themed wads such as STRAIN, Hacx, Nimrod, Dystopia 3, and Perdition's Gate. It features new colorful, high contrast, (intentionally retro) textures inspired by the works of Iika Keranen and Anthony Czerwonka, complete with plenty radioactive signs, warning stripes, computers, slime, and rust.

I always wanted to make something classic but with a new content. This wad has not only new maps, textures and music but also new things. Also there are new monsters (boss included), and a new (barely) map hazard - voltage... Maps in this episode are quite large and more of an andventure sort than anything else, but there's enough monsters to shoot at.
Six episodes of classic Doom maps, originally candidates for last year's "Doom the Way Id Did", arranged in an episodic format. DTWID was a long but fruitful journey, with somewhere around a hundred map submissions in total. Given the strictness of the rules, most of the maps cut were not done so for reasons of quality. On their own they're quite solid maps, deserving their own showcase. This collection, while not 100% complete, contains the vast majority of submissions to the project. Episodes 1-3 are an alternate take on the idea of Doom the Way Id Did, three sets of maps arranged to mimic id's original episodic styles. Several maps in these sets were very close contenders to the main project, excluded only because of withdrawals or episode length limits. You may be hard- pressed to find a difference in quality! Episode 4 follows partially in the same vein, with several maps that mimic the style of id's "Thy Flesh Consumed" and hell-themed levels filling out the rest of the roster. Episode 5, "Base Instinct", is a "bonus" episode of E1/E2-style maps, and can be thought of as an alternate take on the Phobos / Deimos story. The episode can be accessed in the main game menu with either ZDoom or Eternity. For vanilla or other ports, running DTWID-E5.wad will load E5's maps in place of E1's. Episode 6, "The Final Gate", is a ZEternity- exclusive "Boss Rush" episode consisting of E*M8 candidates. No separate wad is provided, as MAPINFO is required to make the boss exits work, though the individual maps are vanilla compatible for those willing to put the maps in the correct slots.
Japanese Community Project is a 32 level megawad made by Japanese Doomers. Doom is a minor game in Japan, so Doom community in Japan is very small. The community having been weakening year by year, we started this project for strengthening our solidarity, improving mapping skill, and so on. We aimed a low-threshold project which anyone could participate. Some doomers were inexperience mappers or beginners, so Tatsurd-Cacocaco, a project leader, supported map's detail and port compatibility. We finally managed to complete 32 maps which are the same quality as modern maps. Japanese status HUD is included .If you load JPCP_HUD.wad with this wad, status bar in "Katakana" and "Kanji" can be used. We hope that you have a good time.
