Death Wish is a massive new Blood campaign that has been under development since January 2010 and has finally been released. Every level is highly polished, and you may even see a few Mapedit tricks you never thought possible! The creator is a long-time Build veteran who has pulled out all the stops to make this the most amazing, original user content for Blood ever released.


  1. Over 30 levels spread out across 3 episodes, which includes secret levels and transition levels for flowing smoothly back into the main campaign.
  2. 6 new cut scenes, appearing at the beginning and end of each episode explaining the story and its developments throughout the course of the game.
  3. New story, taking place after the events of the original Blood and its add-ons while staying within the same mythology.
  4. The Tome message system, giving the player hints and story tidbits during play to further deepen the story and reveal hints or secrets.
  5. All the levels have been adapted to be playable in Co-Op mode, so you and up to 7 other friends can tackle Death Wish together.
  6. All levels include modified enemy and item placement depending on difficulty settings for added replay value. Even long-time Blood pros will find a challenge in Death Wish's brutal Extra Crispy setting.
  7. A very detailed plain-text Walkthrough is included. It is split into 2 sections: One with the basic player path discussed and the other revealing all available secrets.
  8. A Commentary text file is included, revealing the creator and lead QA tester's thoughts on Death Wish and its content.
  9. A detailed README file is included, ensuring that everyone can get things working properly even on varying file system configurations.
  10. Simple drag-and-drop installation — no confusing or malfunctioning installers.

A Long Time Coming

It has been ages since our hero Caleb set out against the evil Cabal, and this may be his biggest challenge yet. Three complete episodes, complete with the elusive secret levels, await.

The journey begins in the mountains and quickly takes you to the unforgiving, icy north. From there you will traverse a plethora of varied environments from dry deserts to dank caves in pursuit of your longtime foe Tchernobog. Years have passed and the world has changed, but Tchernobog's burning desire for power has remained the same. With Tchernobog's new powers to aid him, will Caleb be able to defeat him once again before it's too late?

Increase screen resolution to the SVGA one (640x480 or most preferably 800x600).

Don't forget about all round GOG style fancy icon, also you can put walkthrough along with read-me version in pdf because Notepad on Windows often cause mess with text readibillity (of course there's a Wordpad but pdf is a nice touch, and if you want, in style of original Blood manual for sort of nostalgia factor). ;-)

I want to start off by saying I really love this mod. It's great to see blood getting some love, and the level design of this mod is just amazing. But I seem to have run into some sort of bug.

When I launch the mod through the launcher my hud and weapons flicker when I get close to any walls. I don't have this problem when I start blood normally and then load a DW save though. I tried copying the .conf file from dosboxblood and pasting it to dosboxbloodDW but to no avail. If anybody has any tips on how to get rid of this annoying bug I'd be forever thankful.

Just thought about this little gem of an addon and voted for it. :)

That's a new one. Is that a Blood problem or a problem with the mod?

Anyway, here's all I have concerning Windows 64-bit in the DW Readme:
All files from inside of the Death Wish zipped folder into the root Blood folder. This means that all files go into "C:\Program Files (x86)\\One Unit Whole Blood" or whatever your root directory, NOT "C:\Program Files (x86)\\One Unit Whole Blood\Death Wish". If your files aren't in the root directory then it won't work. Don't worry, nothing will be overwritten.
Does that help?

Amazing mod.
Out of the 30 levels I think there maybe only 1 or 2 I didn't like as much. Otherwise it's solid all the way through.

There is an amazing variety of environments all with different well executed atmospheres and interesting well thought layouts.

Gameplay is always fun and health-ratio is pretty much perfect in every map.
There is also some neat effects here and there and tons of secrets to find in each level.

A must play for any fan of Build engine games.
