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!!!!!

On v20b there will be a CVAR called "bd_blursphere". It can restore the invisibility power-ups (which are replaced by captured marines), or mix them, with a random chance of spawning each other.

And now, unlike in Vanilla Doom, the player is actually invisible, and you can confuse and trick enemies with it. Watch a demonstration here:

NOTICE seeing as the earlier tohou related photos were deleted no doubt due to its controversy "IE peoples stupidity" ill re-post one of my ideas from there to here. And keep in mind its NOT a request just some ideas for a more trippy and creepy level design based on a much older game called Yume Nikki AKA Dream Diary ... basically my 2 cent opinion make of it what you will and take it with a grain of salt.

"know what it would be trippy as **** if doom guy somehow wound up in Yume Niki's dream world or something similar to it.

Any one of those doors is a guaranteed mind **** and to see those delusional dimensions or something like it in a 3D format would only make it a hell of alot more creepy ...

would be a pretty fun concept mapping wise for a bonus level / wad or something like that imho

Is there an addon to have v19 Plasma Gun textures to v20 supporting dual wield and alt-burst fire? Albeit completely aesthetic the chunky plasma gun in doesn't feel so satisfying when in use. If anyone could make an addon for this I would be very appreciative of it!!!

(Dual Wield in use)
(One requested)

The add on section is getting really cluttered. Is there any way we can truncate it a bit? Or at least clean it up, I'll see multiple versions of an add-on (Brutal Pack for example) when why not just condense it to just one? It'll save us all some room. Or all the new weapon add-ons, why not just put them into one file and have the screenshots in the description? Just a thought.

So what's the music that's in Brutal Doom by default? I haven't been able to find a download or even track names anywhere, and I want this stuff on my playlist.

BrĂ¼tal 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…

Brutal Doom is an over the top (and OVERRATED) mod for the classic DOS Doom games. The weapon sprites look nice and smooth... That is where the positives end I am afraid. The sounds within this mod are terrible (excluding voice acting), the weapons sound like water guns compared to the sounds of the enemies screams of pain (Seriously are you into sadism and shit bro?), the screaming blasts over every other sound going off, it is pure ear hell! The balancing of the mod is absolutely shagged: More…
