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.

My feedback on the most recent BDV20;


Almost everything! The new test version proves that V20 is going to be awesome. Please keep it that way, but don't forget to look at the cons below.


1. The Rocket Launcher is too... short.
2. The Rifle's sights are a good attempt to replicate the unzoomed sprite, but they are badly shaded.
3. The kick sprite is laughable, I can't even put my leg like that. I much prefer the old sprite.
4. Zombiemen need way too many kicks to die now.

Overall, this version is pretty friggin awesome and I can't wait to see the finalized product.

Am I allowed to make an edited version of this? I want to fix a few bugs here and there (Like the Zombieman corpses stopping lifts) and I want to edit the Shotgun, add an 8+1 reloading and fix the belt somewhat to make it behave more realistically. I will give you the scripts if you want, of course.

Also I saw a few sprites that I edited (The crack animation in fists, the Rifle's ready and reload sprite). Can you add me to the credits list?

For anyone experiencing gibs and body parts breaking elevators: I already found the source of this problem, and it will be fixed on the next beta test. No need to report it again.

Yup. Noticed this yesterday. Fixed it by blasting the gib with the shotgun.

Also this bug seems to only happen in GZdoom, so, use Zandronum instead.

I would like to make up for being a complete idiot by saying that this mod is great. Look I don't hate it, it's awesome, it changes doom completely, it shows to id software that doom could had been improved like this a little more, and that the gloves look awesome. But it does get boring sometimes because needs a new player skin, it needs brutal multiplayer maps on zandronum, needs some new weapons, fixes, version 20, and models for the normal guns (make the rifle an M4). But it's still awesome, it's cool, and impressive. To SGT Mark 4....i'm sorry. I hope you can forgive me. And to youtube users like TheUACVeteran...heck you, this mod is epic.

only way this mod will get re-skins of the marine and get off-lore is if someone goes through and re-makes each and every single animation, its not like modern games where you can just make a simple skin for the player and then all the animations are there already (which is why real 3D models are ALOOOOT more easier to use than sprites, just come up with a body frame and put whatever you like on it, animations are alot easier) doing a single sprite can, if youre good maybe 10-30 minutes. otherwise chances of more player models...fairly low.

Well ok. Anyway i'd like to thank to only one of you for being kind to me and showing me what new order is. I'll check on that youtuber someday and give him a special thanks. Also, I'll keep seeing goldeneye 64 videos on youtube...and also deal with Da Shrew on youtube....he's a real moron.

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…

A god-awful one-shot gimmick. Overhyped and overpraised. Bother yourself with higher quality mods like DoomRLA, Russian Overkill, and more. Not worth any MOTY.
