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.

Um, search Brutal Doom v19. It's official, "vanilla" Brutal Doom. Run with your choice of Zandronum or GZDoom.
That's it.

All my previous experiences with Brutal Doom were v15 in Skulltag, and I'm trying out gzdoom in order to run v19. I followed the instructions to install via this video.
But when I launch the game, with any combination of files or even Brutal Doom v19 by itself, I hear the music and can interact with the game, but nothing appears. I have a single core Acer Aspire laptop running Windows 7. I've tried it in various resolutions, some not widescreen. I don't know what is happening. Can anyone help?

Holy s*** guys, I got an update on the d-touch source port for android, and it comes with 100℅ compatibility with brutal doom! The explosion gfx are fixed and there is even a button to flip off monsters (as well as alt attack). Happy ripping and tearing.

Highest Rated (105 agree) 10/10

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…
