THE DARK MOD is a total conversion of Doom 3, turning it into a dark and moody stealth game inspired by the Thief series by Looking Glass Studios.
ShadowHide's first mission (and Seasons Contest entry) "Winter Harvest" has been released.

One our friends from the Russian "Thief fan mega-site" Darkfate.ru has entered The Dark Mod community's "Seasons Contest" with his first ever mission "Winter Harvest".
Of particular note is:
* The use of moody Thief style colors
* A large forest using the new SEED procedural content system
* Friendly NPC conversations
* Rustic peasant cabins
* Psychedelic and supernatural themes
It was quite daring for ShadowHide to create a mission that is so different and plays with player expectations as both a first mission and contest entry. It is also quite unique to be greeted with dialog from an NPC who's role is normally to bludgeon you to death. While this is far from a typical Dark Mod mission we hope that you will give this a try as it's a rare and unique experience from a mission author with a distinct new perspective.
The latest bugfix release of this mission still has not addressed a couple of issues. The mission can be played to completion but could be frustrating depending on what order or actions are attempted. Another release is pending shortly.
Please stop over at the Forum Thread to discuss the mission (and place your votes).
