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 more

 Everything 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 loud as fuck. 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, and a weapon will never be outclassed when you find a new weapon.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. Press F (default bind) to taunt enemy players, and Z or X (default binds) to wave to other players in cooperative modes.
 Brütal Doom will make the good an old Doom have a new and fresh look. It will give you a reason to play all the Ultimate Doom, Doom 2, and Final Doom levels again. This mod also works with almost every megawad and map pack around. Take a breath, and prepare to RIP AND TEAR HUGE GUTS!!!!!

Sarge, regarding that last reply I gave to the guy below: shouldn't be time to change Brütal Doom's "Official Page"?

I know almost everyone is aware by now that Skulltag is dead, but it would be nice to replace the useless Skulltag link for a link to Zdoom's or Zandronum's threads (or no link at all) to avoid confusions.

******* AWESOME MOD, Sgt. Mark IV! Totally made my year.

I have a question. I saw a monster called Belphegor on a YouTube video related to this mod. How do I summon him? Does he naturally occur in some wad?

Manny_F. Aug 12 2012, 12:22pm replied:

Belphegor is a Skulltag-only monster. Aside from it being purposely placed on Skulltag-compatible maps, you will have to spawn it through the console to fight him (more info in the description of this video: ).

However, given Skulltag has died out, I don't know if Belphegor will continue available.

Risen 3D's engine is, technically speaking, way too primitive for a mod like Brütal Doom.

It works only for Zdoom-derived ports, which have the sufficient technical capabilities to support it.

This mod is simply brilliant! I have this on my flash drive as a portable app so i can take brutal doom everywhere i go and play it on any computer without leaving anything behind. All the settings and game saves are written to its own internal file structure. Sarge you are the man! Thank you for making doom so wonderfully brutal and FUN!!!

Brütal Doom clearly deserves a 10, for several reasons: First, it has been developed almost single handedly by a goodwill individual, who clearly has shown the outmost dedication and perseverance through 2 years of continued development, besides from being always open-minded and patient, hearing suggestions and criticism and enduring ludicrous amounts of flame-wars on some of the forums where the project was being discussed. Such professionalism must be taken in note. Second: the level of compromise…
