Overdose New Year Updates

04 01 16 - 11:56

It's been a while but Overdose has some news about tools and engine upgrades. I don't want to post all the info here (as it's a lot) but, to sum it up: they've got a new custom Radiant, game code as been added to let the player fire & reload, UI's been updated, completely updated sound system (remember, Q2 came out almost two decades ago!), and a fully scriptable particle & FX system.

You can read all the details over at their moddb.com page. By the way, they're not going to keep their own domain & webpage any more, they found that almost noone used it so they feel it's not worth the money.

OverDose is a class, team& objective based multiplayer game set on a post apocalyptic Earth, were the Confederate Marine Corps and Marauders battle it out for supremacy over the destroyed cities of a war torn world. Using idTech2 as a base, we are writing our engine from the ground up to take advantage of modern day graphical options and details levels to bring you eye popping class based multiplayer mayhem. This isn’t just war... Its an all out apocalypse!

Brutal Doom v20b Released

01 01 16 - 15:06

2016-01/doomguy_low_on_health.jpg

We've got two flavors of Brutal: Vanilla (Mediafire Mirror) and Doom 2 (Mediafire Mirror). The basic package (vanilla) contains just the Brutal Doom content, no engine, extra files, etc. The Doom 2 package is everything you want (including the starter pack!) to play EXCEPT your Doom 2 wad (or FreeDoom Phase 2). 

So, if you're a mod savy Doomer you could get away with just the basic package. Me, I wanted the extra's, so I'm getting the Doom 2 edition. Enjoy! Be sure to mail some pic's in of your Brutal Doom'n action to the_happy_friar_planet@yahoo.com!

Demon Steele Release by the end of the year!

28 12 15 - 12:16

The Demon Steele developer, Terminus, made a promise to release the new playable character for Demon Steele by years end and he's ready to release the untested product on us players! So get ready folks! 

What is Demon Steele? Designed as a love letter to retro games, 80s/90s anime, and early heavy metal, DemonSteele is a complete and total gameplay overhaul for GZDoom/Zandronum that dramatically changes the flow of the game to an extremely fast-paced hack-and-slash brawler.  

That's gonna leave a mark.
