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!!!!!

This is the last time i write a comment like this because everyone has the right of do things without being pushed from other people. So one last time, i contacted the guy from DHTP web site (the Hi Res Package) and he said that the stuff i wrote on my PDF file (i underline AS A SIMPLE SUGGESTION/OPINION) is possible only through the engine. I was wondering if this guy is right, because in this old file called "Demons of Problematique 2" released in 2009, we already had the underwater feature. That's all. So this is it? We can only have this feature through a new version of GZDoom or Doomsday? Goddamn! Somebody tell me that isn't true!
I posted a vid on youtube (the file i'm talking about is in Pk3 format).
Anyway this is my Pdf file:
and this is the vid i posted 5 minutes ago on YouTube:

I will not posted comment like this in the future, i don't want to push people.

And just for the record, I checked Demons of Problematic 2 with Brutal Doom 2 right now, and the underwater areas worked fine.

I NEVER SAID that Brutal Doom doesn't work with maps with underwater areas. I was just wondering why we don't have that feature inside the mod for playing any map with that feature.

Do you mean, maps with underwater areas, included in Brutal Doom?

ElectroBodyManiac Nov 30 2013, 11:42am replied:

Hi man,
not the maps included in the mod but just the feat.
My question is simple: is possible to have the water/acid/lava areas interactive like the first chapter of Quake through Brutal Doom in any map (Vanilla Doom or plain custom WAD), or for this thing we have to wait a new version of GZDoom/Zandronum? (I am not a pro/amatuer programmer).

No, this is impossible. The underwater area must be made in the map, or you can edit the existing maps to contain such areas.

ElectroBodyManiac Nov 30 2013, 6:59pm replied:

Ok now i understand. Anyway this is a link to a PDF file i wrote couple weeks ago. There is more than underwater areas. Some details that in my opinion can improve your mod. Don't misunderstand me: i think your mod is already perfect. In this file i only tried to find out what details can bring the mod from 8 out of 10 to 10 out of 10 (just a player opinion, again i'm not a programmer). I would like to underline once more: i am not underrating your job that is awesome, i'm just sharing my opinion in a polite way. I think Brutal Doom is few step away from perfection. That's all man. Thanks for the answers, the patience and everything. Regards.

here is the link:

There is a underwater feature on ZDoom already. It's just hard to find maps that contains it.

Raven Crypt is a map containing underwater areas, that can be played with Brutal Doom.

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…
