Gloom is an atmospheric team play modification for Quake II that puts humans against a team of alien spiders. The object of the game is to obliterate the opposing team by killing their troops and destroying their spawn points. Each team has six classes which can be bought with frags earned, as well as two base classes. The depth of Gloom lies in the radical differences between its teams as well as the versatility of the builder classes that have the power to make every game truly unique. The fun of Gloom lies in using teamwork and class advancement to dominate each game.

Over 6 years later and still nothing in here so I took over the moddb/gloom site and updated info, screens, videos and added standalone installer.

Over 6 years later and still pages are empty so I took over the moddb/gloom page because the original author just typed some random text to summary and left. I Hope that some of you will get interested in this, graphics might not blow your mind but the game itself is helluva much fun and deep. Easy to play but hard to master :)

Updated some info, screens, videos and added standalone installer so you don't need Quake 2 to enjoy this mod. The video below is little lame but I have never edited videos before ;p

Yeah, liked it too.

Years a go friend of mine always mentioned this mod when I babbled to words "Natural Selection" in to the air.

2 things that could make this game even more epic

1. Give the Spiders frick'n' Lasers on their heads

2. Set the Spiders on Fire.. Yep now you're ******!
