Caleb will need to muster all his strength to take down the mighty Tchernobog, who has managed to free himself from the grip of death. Death Wish is a new campaign for Blood with over 30 new levels, cut scenes, and more. All levels have been modified for Co-op play. The entire mod was developed by a single mapper, ensuring consistency and quality.
After watching a bunch of LPs over the last few years I made some edits to a lot of the problem areas players ran into as well as a variety of things I wanted to add or make better.
• Architecture changes to all missions (some more than others where sector limits allowed). New areas and better looking old areas.
• 2 new secret levels (+2 transition levels to rejoin the main campaign).
• Health rebalance: Last version was a little too stingy on health so I fixed that. Extra Crispy is still there for experts (including my devious prox mine placement)
• I removed a lot of things that impeded speedrunning / bomb-jump skips and added some new areas in several maps that add more speedrun opportunities (like connecting previously separate sections with only a tall wall between).
• Big overhauls to areas players singled out as annoying or confusing. For example, lot of people found the majority of Mothership too dark and plodding (especially with the vent system), so I did a lot of work to that mission to brighten up several places, connect sections, etc. The arrangement and weapon loadout for the Beast fights in Last Rites was also annoying for many players, so I put better weapon/ammo drops before those fights. Originally the idea was that players would shotgun them off the cliff (killing them instantly) but almost no one knew that was possible and it was difficult to do. I continued fixing these types of situations as I went through making changes to other things.
• New secret areas created when the opportunity arose during remodeling.
• The little things to make the missions more fun and less confusing:
- Many elevators move more quickly
- Doors open more quickly in missions where there are a lot of them to open (like The Abyss)
- Some key symbols and switches that blended into the environment were made easier to spot
- Extremely dark areas were brightened with better lighting overall
- Sections with too many uniform textures were edited to be more distinct and easy to navigate
- Large water areas have been upgraded so that you'll swim in the desired direction more quickly (like the beginning of Weird Science)
- Instances of "cheap" hitscan enemy placement edited
• Less multiplayer trapping. Doors that close (like the bomb door in Jigsaw) will eventually reopen, for example, so other players don't get locked out. There are probably some places that this kind of thing can still happen, but in the end this is a single-player campaign first and I don't want to compromise that experience to accommodate multiplayer. I was going to add teleporter "checkpoints" for multiplayer in all the levels, but with my very limited free time to work on Death Wish that didn't seem like a good time investment. Just the same, I tried to keep an eye out for trapping situations and hopefully I tended to most of them.
• Most switches’ height adjusted so less mouselook movement is required.
• More End Switches so it’s more clear that the level will end in several places instead of finding out the moment you try to open a door or walk down a hallway
I don't own the GOG version of Blood (I've used a Mac running DOSBox for years), so it's been tricky trying to come up with a consistent set of instructions for how to get it running — my friend who owns the GOG version wrote the GOG instructions for the last release but doesn't seem to work for everyone. I'm going to collect all the most helpful information that I've come across in different forums and put that in the README. If someone has a method that works please post it!

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.
