Total Recall is an action comedy mod for Doom 3 singleplayer. Loosely based on the 1990 science fiction movie, the main focus of this mod was to create the ultimate Arnold Schwarzenegger gaming experience using the id Tech 4 engine. You take on the role of Douglas Quaid, a secret agent sent on a mission to Mars where you must embark on an action packed journey and fight some of the toughest intergalactic bad guys on this side of the solar system.
What kind of mod is Total Recall?
Work on Total Recall began back in mid 2008 and was originally planned as a comedy sound replacement mod for Doom 3's singleplayer campaign. But as the movie Total Recall and Doom 3 share similar story elements and setting, a futuristic Schwarzenegger spy mod seemed like an excellent idea. The storyline is loosely based on the movie Total Recall and the short story by Philip K. Dick entitled We Can Remember It for You Wholesale. By using the movie as a foundation, Total Recall has grown into quite a complex storyline which highlights a number of subjects including global warming and the end of days. As for the actual mod itself, Total Recall is strongly story driven and will not be classed as a total conversion. However, as there will be many changes in the mod in comparison to the original Doom 3 experience and some of these changes include;
Total Recall is set in the year 2087 where global warming and overpopulation of Earth have forced mankind to colonize the planet Mars. The main character is Douglas Quaid, a secret agent working for the world renowned mega-corporation, Earth Intelligence, who has been assigned with a mission to infiltrate central administration on the Mars colony. However, Quaid's identity is soon uncovered by the colony's administrator, Vilos Cohaagen, who tries to stop Quaid in his tracks using any means necessary and keep him from discovering the mysterious findings that lie deep within the planet's core....
