the reality-bending subgenre

.zen dynamics.

Action-packed 9-map partial conversion for ZDoom featuring a slew of new weapons. The wad puts you in the shoes of an experimental super-bio-soldier who awakens just in time for the Second Invasion. Journey from Earth to Hell and back to unravel your purpose and the story behind the chaos caused by the UAC and Zen Dynamics corporations.

Zen is more or less my magnum opus (thus far, at least), though it was never really meant to be. It's a bit old by today's standards and the reloading code is horribly hacked (though in my defense, it was the first manual reloading system ever to be done in ZDoom), but some people still swear it's fun so it may be worth a try if you haven't yet.

.turbocharged arcade.

Spawned from the deepest pits of insanity, this lightning-fast serial mapset is a conglomeration of short, quirky, and humorous maps featuring a variety of odd playstyles such as museum raids, convoluted mysteries, arkanoid ripoffs, and Matrix parodies. Though this psychotic realm offers promise of hilarity and fun, will Hitler and Satan's [?Acronym] be kind enough to let you escape once you enter?

TcA is split into two separate episodes, the second being the end result of a collaboration between myself and the awesomely-crazy Jimmy. TcA's original episode was a semi-co-winner of the Mockaward in Doomworld's 13th Annual Cacowards, while the second managed to last-second swipe the Mockaward in the 17th Annual Cacowards in an interesting Christmas surprise.

.lost episode.

Perhaps my most controversial release, the Lost Episode is a neo-classic 5th episode for Doom One that features plenty of impossible architecture and interdimensional travel.

Originally a personal project that got out of hand, LE is a conglomeration of Alpha and PSX maps compiled and Xasered past the point of recognizability for the purpose of bringing them to the PC in a convenient package. Certainly worth a play from those who like classic, straightforward gameplay, but those who are put off by the odd architecture are encouraged to at least play beyond the first room. :P

.zharkov goes to the store.

What happens when an insane, reality-bending kung-fu master is so plagued by hunger that he starts to hallucinate a demon invasion? It's probably best not to ask and just play this mod instead.

Zharky features 10-ish psychotic weapons ranging from missile walls to thrown fists to projectile rainers, an optional do-it-yourself soundtrack, and a sound bank of unparalleled insanity courtesy of CheapAlert/leileilol. Perfect for fans of chaos and random.

.go back.
