Known Bugs              : On rare occasions, the floor-up trip line for the UFO abduction fails.  I've installed an additional trip line in the sector you transport to, just in case.  But after that, it always worked, so I haven't gotten to test the extra line yet.  Should work.  ::fingers crossed::  If all else fails, IDCLIP

Your cushy desk job has been interrupted by an invasion of alien creatures bent on taking you out for, uh, dinner.  Upon fighting your way out of the building, you discover that much more has gone wrong with the world than you could have imagined.  It's all on you to save it, and you'll have to leave it to do it.  Be brave.  Don't let them win.  Get control of the ship!

OK, so much for my movie trailer script writing career.  I've never seen a DooM level in which the player gets abducted by a UFO.  Always wanted to make one.  The first plans for it were drawn up in 1997, and I've worked on it in fits and starts ever since.  Per usual, my vision was larger than the DooM engine could fulfill - even with the newer fancy ports.  But I finally figured out a way to pare it down to the acheivable and still make a, hopefully, satisfying abduction experience.  Happy hunting.  Don't forget to save during the rare moments the baddies leave you alone for a second.

New music by Yours Truly, titled War of the Worlds, copyright 2011.  It really should have a medley of Styx's Come Sail Away and the X-files theme, but then I wouldn't be able to upload it to, and what-hh would fin-a-ll-ih be the point?
