I am very happy to inform all you “Brutal Doom” fans out there that it seems like we’re going to get a chance to play the beta of BD v21 within the next 24 or 48 hours. Yes, you read it right, because this is what Sergeant_Mark_IV (the creator of “Brutal Doom”) said today via Twitter:
“v21 beta coming up on following 24/48hs and moddb links of v20b will be taken down. If you want to save it for nostalgia purposes do it now” – Sergeant_Mark_IV
In other words, keep your eyes open for the latest edition of “Brutal Doom”! I have added the new BD v21 dev diary down below.
About Brutal Doom:
In development since 2010, the 18th Cacoward winner and Moddb 2012 MOTY Editors Choice of Creativity Award Brütal Doom takes Doom into a whole new level. It makes the game much more violent than before. There’s much more blood, plus it adds unique gibs, death animations, dismemberments, headshots, executions, fire and explosion particles, flares, shadows over all objects, and much more.
The whole world becomes more real and interactive.You can kick severed limbs and heads (and sometimes, use it to activate some traps in the map earlier, or even kick them against enemies to do some damage), you can shoot enemies’ heads to deal more damage (and cause more gruesome deaths) you can destroy most things in the the scenario (trees, lamps, hanging bodies, etc), you can paint the floor, the walls, and even the ceiling with blood, you can push the explosive barrels to make traps, or grab them and use like an explosive weapon, you can silently take down enemies from behind and perform stealth kills, the chainsaw actually cuts the enemies in two. When you find the berserk pack and get super strength, you can perform cinematic executions and RIP AND TEAR your foes with your bare hands.
Some enemies will scream in anguish and try to crawl away when near death, and they can be used as human shields, and much, much moreEverything in Brutal Doom is extremely intense. Everything sounds louder, looks bigger, moves faster, and hits harder. You can even fell the impact of explosions. Enemies are harder and smarter, and weapons and explosions are much louder. Your weapons have been upgraded to a deadly arsenal, completely throwing the vanilla Doom’s “progressive weapon system” through the window. Every weapon is powerful and have it’s pros and cons, a a weapon will never be outclassed when you find a new weapon, but only find a different use for different situations, making Brutal Doom more balanced and more strategic than Vanilla gameplay. You have new abilities too. With any weapon selected, you can press Q (default bind) to kick enemies at close range and send them away.
