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!!!!!

Check out this new video showcasing the latest advancements on gameplay and gore effects, and also, the return of the shotgun's wooden grip.

This video is running a modified version of FreeDoom that will be featured on the "Starter Pack" when BDv20 gets released.

I have completed almost everything required to record the official trailer and decide the release date. Expect big news soon.

BDv20 is also going to be 100% compatible with wads that uses custom graphics such as FreeDoom and Back to Saturn X.

How many new death animations are enough? I say it's not enough yet.

Hello, I've been watching videos about this mod and it looks amazing but i have one problem.
I cant it play because i cant play Zandronum or GZDoom...
GZDoom just plain dosent work on my mac but Zandronum does but it requires something called IWAD files. All I know is that i cant get them because i would have to buy doom 2 entirely. Is there some way to get them withought buying doom 2? Thanks.
keep up the good work on your mod

Brutal Doom is not a standalone Doom engine game. It is a mod so yes you do need an IWAD from Doom, Doom 2, or Final Doom.

I found a minor bug, when you roll and then ads with either the rifle or shotgun you get stuck in third person. Also do you think it might be possible to add player on player fatalities? Any ways keep up the great work this is one of hell of a good mod.

Oh wow, the hardest difficulty is Black Metal. I LOVE THAT! XD

Also, on .17 earlier before I downloaded and installed .18, when I die or need and or reload save I would get an error and Zandronum has to close. I have no choice but to start a new game anyway with .18, however, is this problem fixed? It occurred after a few times, getting crushed by a crusher, killed by a Baron, and once without dying at all.

Please tell me this problem is fixed in this version. It was annoying.

The little specks of flesh from the plasma rifle seem a bit big, is there any way to scale them down a bit? Personally I think single squares would be very nice. The new sighting animation for the rifle scope seems a bit quick too, but aside from that, it's great. Loving the new difficulty levels, and it's nice that the chaingun is no longer a rapid-fire sniper rifle.

Is brutal Arsenal released yet? I was following that but I never got any news.

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…
