No story as yet, the triad have return and they're up to no good. Do we even need a story?


All the original weapons from ROTT!!
All the enemies from ROTT
ludicrous Gibs! (flying eyes!)
Dog Mode / Gode Mode / Mecury Mode / Shrooms mode
Gas rooms
Traps from the original rott
Moving walls incl. pushwalls
Multiplayer / Co-op compatible (will not work on Skulltag - Sorry!)

There are a few different things to ROTT i.e. we made the Dark staff fire quickly in multiplayer because it was kinda useless.


All new maps using zdoom features, however there is a definate ROTT 'feel' to them, its a kind of tribute to the orignal but with polyangle(?) walls.
Check out for more upto date info.

You guys have really brought ROTT back from the dead. Flawless reconstruction of the features of the original, with a new zdoom twist, fun as hell. Great work!

Doesn't work with newer versions of Zdoom, either v2.5 or the SVN revisions. Hopefully the author will update it!

It won't work with v2.5, but should work just fine using the SVN versions; I just tried it with the latest SVN (r3574), and it works.
