Doomworld s Cacowards showcase a dazzling 25th year of Doom mods

It’s Doom‘s 25th birthday, and Id’s classic FPS has grown up along with me. While I’ve enjoyed modern iterations such as 2016’s reboot, the original’s ever-mutating open source foundation and lively mod scene just won’t let me go. When John Romero announced he was releasing a nine-level Doom episode built to 1993 spec, I shrugged, because that pales in comparison to what the Doom community have built this year. Let’s dig into the winners of the 2018 Cacowards, Doomworld’s annual mod ceremony, including some standalone, freeware games – no Doom mod experience needed.

DOOM - February 11, 2019
Doom 2 is more than just Doom these days. Some modern levels for the 90s classic FPS feature thousands of enemies, fiendish traps and difficulty beyond anything Id Software dreamt of. Eviternity, released yesterday, runs the gamut. It’s a 32-level campaign split up into six episodes each with a fresh look and some new monsters. You’ll start out in gloomy gothic tunnels, plinking away at zombies with a pistol. By the end, you’ll be screaming through the vast halls of heaven itself, cutting through ungodly-huge swarms of demons with BFG in hand. It’s rather brill.
