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.

I just can't get this mod working the way I want. It seems utterly impossible to play this mod with the cd audio and have enough memory to not crash on e1m2. I tried altering paths to get the game to launch on a fresh download of DOSBox-0.74 and changed the memsize to be large enough... only to have DOSBox say the shortcut with the cd audio is illegal for some reason, forcing me to play with midi sound using a different shortcut. It's not the end of the world to have to listen to midi but I would much prefer finding a way to get this mod to launch using the cd audio.

I've gotten this mod to work, however i'm lost trying to get it to run at a high resolution without an unplayable amount of sluggishness and input lag. at low resolutions it runs fine but the window is too small to enjoy it. I'm pretty sure this is because DOSbox only allocates 14mb of memory instead of the required 23mb. I don't have this problem with the main game or cryptic passage so does anyone know a way to get the mod running like them?

I created this account just to praise this mod. It was brought to my attention by a review by youtuber Gggmanlives. Absolutely amazing and I am really thankful for your hard work Bloatoid.

I tried to get the mod working on GOG Galaxy but had no luck. However, it was extremely easy to get working with the Steam version. The following was taken from a thread on the Steam forums, posted by user Kvaki:

"I found an easy way to install. just put all the files in your "one unit whole blood" folder. then rename blood.ini to whatever like bloodbackup.ini then rename the dw.ini to blood.ini then your all set xD"

I followed those easy instructions and they worked like a charm. Just wanted to post that so everyone can play this awesome mod.

If you want to run this with the GOG version, the instructions aren't actually enough as the configs in the latest GOG version are different and don't match up to the settings. These instructions assume that your Blood installation comes from GogGalaxy and is fully functional (i.e you have working movies).

First, copy the contents of the mod into the root of your Blood install directory.

Next, you need to make a bunch of changes to a bunch of files. They aren't too hard to do, but it does require chopping and changing a bunch of different files so it might be an idea to backup each file I tell you about as you reach it just in case. Also, what you see in your files might not match exactly what I see, so no guarantees. First, find and open your dosboxBlood.conf.

Copy everything in this file. Now open dosboxBloodDW.conf.

Look at the bottom of this file and you should see something like:

# Lines in this section will be run at startup.

etc etc...

Select everything above these lines and paste in what you copied from your dosboxBlood.conf. This should make sure that your (working) Blood dosbox settings are applied to DW.

Next, open dosboxBlood_single.conf

I don't know what yours says, but mine says:

# Lines in this section will be run at startup.

mount C ".."
imgmount D "..\game.ins" -t iso

What you now need to do is replace the bottom part of dosboxBloodDW.conf (everything from [autoexec] and below that you DIDN'T copy over before) with whatever is in dosboxBlood_single.conf, WITH ONE EXCEPTION:

In dosboxBloodDW.conf, you should see the line:

BLOOD.EXE -ini dw.ini

When you copy over stuff from your default Blood file, you MUST make sure that this line still retains the "-ini dw.ini".

You can now close these files.

Next, you need to find a file called "DW GOG". It's actually the shortcut used to launch the mod. I suggest you open Notepad or other text editor as it will make modifying the next bit easier.

Right click it->properties and look at the "Start in" and "Target".

Now find the "Launch One Unit Whole Blood" shortcut. Again, right-click->properties.

Copy onto separate lines the contents of "Target" and "Start in" from both shortcuts so you can compare them. You'll notice they have slight differences. You need to modify the DW shortcut so it matches as closely as possible the original One Unit Whole Blood shortcut, but preserving the switches that feed it the DW config.

In my case, I needed to modify the DW shortcut "Target" field to:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\GalaxyClient\Games\Blood\DOSBOX\DOSBox.exe" -conf "..\dosboxBloodDW.conf" -noconsole -c exit

and the "Target" field to:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\GalaxyClient\Games\Blood\DOSBOX"

Obviously you should substitute your directory into those paths.

Finally, you need to get the movies and music to work.

Open your dw.ini. Look for the line that says SourceDir= and make sure it says:


and then make sure that all the cutscene and music paths have NOTHING except the name of the file you want, like so:


This should finally be enough to both get the mod running and have movies work. Hope this helps!

I am using Windows 8.1 and I cannot get Deathwish to work. Can anyone please help me.

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote

No clue what I am doing wrong!
Copied files over a fresh GoG copy of Blood, changed the stuff under DWGoG shortcut, it launches and crashes before it the game starts >.<
And I actually got this working before!

Hey Guys

I'm very new to modding and have heard quite a lot of good things about Death Wish for Blood. I really want to play it but I'm not sure on how to install it properly. I have the Steam version and very unsure of the ins and outs of DosBox.

I'm also experiencing some issues that may be directly connected to Windows 10, such as upon clicking on the setup.exe file in the Blood Directory resulting in a pop message stating 'This app can't run on your PC'.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks again for anyone who responds :)

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.
