Weatherman is a Doom 3 Modproject by 3rd semester students from Germany. It's sort of a platformer (jump&run-like) using a side-perspective but that's not it, because its got a feature that no one has seen before: a special perspective change! Every moment you can change the world from either fire/wind and ice/water which will change the environments, only that way you can solve all the puzzles. If everything works fine there will be two levels whereas every level includes two maps and a bossfight. The Modification is a project done by students currently being in the 3rd Semester. Three of us study Game-Design, one does Media-Design and one is an Animator.
Finally the Demo has arrived and therefore you can have a first look on Weatherman.

So as promised the Demo is up for you to download. It features two maps, first a little tutorial level to get to know the controls and then stage 4 from the final game. But well, here's the download link:
Important note: this Demo is based on an alpha of the game, so there might be bugs not found, yet. Still, most of the features are implemented and working. Only the impossible-difficulty and the extras have been taken out due to several issues.
But I don't wanna waste more time so to teaser you a little bit I've got some screenshots. First is us, the team and then a sneak peak of stage 4 and the tutorial-map.
I hope you'll like the current version, please comment and give feedback, it'll be very helpful because this is a project for university!
