Death Wish is a massive new Blood campaign that has been under development since January 2010 and has finally been released. Every level is highly polished, and you may even see a few Mapedit tricks you never thought possible! The creator is a long-time Build veteran who has pulled out all the stops to make this the most amazing, original user content for Blood ever released.

Features

  1. Over 30 levels spread out across 3 episodes, which includes secret levels and transition levels for flowing smoothly back into the main campaign.
  2. 6 new cut scenes, appearing at the beginning and end of each episode explaining the story and its developments throughout the course of the game.
  3. New story, taking place after the events of the original Blood and its add-ons while staying within the same mythology.
  4. The Tome message system, giving the player hints and story tidbits during play to further deepen the story and reveal hints or secrets.
  5. All the levels have been adapted to be playable in Co-Op mode, so you and up to 7 other friends can tackle Death Wish together.
  6. All levels include modified enemy and item placement depending on difficulty settings for added replay value. Even long-time Blood pros will find a challenge in Death Wish's brutal Extra Crispy setting.
  7. A very detailed plain-text Walkthrough is included. It is split into 2 sections: One with the basic player path discussed and the other revealing all available secrets.
  8. A Commentary text file is included, revealing the creator and lead QA tester's thoughts on Death Wish and its content.
  9. A detailed README file is included, ensuring that everyone can get things working properly even on varying file system configurations.
  10. Simple drag-and-drop installation — no confusing or malfunctioning installers.

A Long Time Coming

It has been ages since our hero Caleb set out against the evil Cabal, and this may be his biggest challenge yet. Three complete episodes, complete with the elusive secret levels, await.

The journey begins in the mountains and quickly takes you to the unforgiving, icy north. From there you will traverse a plethora of varied environments from dry deserts to dank caves in pursuit of your longtime foe Tchernobog. Years have passed and the world has changed, but Tchernobog's burning desire for power has remained the same. With Tchernobog's new powers to aid him, will Caleb be able to defeat him once again before it's too late?

We've made a few changes to the installation instructions for Good Old Games people but I guess ModDB had to approve the file upload or something. Sorry, it's the first time we've dealt with this system.

Cant get this to work.Im using windows 7 64 bit and I've got the gog version of blood. after following the gog installation insstructions for this mod when I click on dw.bat I get an error saying cannot start or run due to an incompatability error with 64 bit version of windows. blood alone works just fine and I've played other mods for it using the mod launcher thats on the gog forums. I have absolutely no idea how to use dosbox and any help would be appreciated. I also dont know where else I could post this.

I had the same problem running the Blood gog version on windows 7 64bit
The Solution is as follows:
After pasting the Deathwish files to your Blood directory open dosboxBloodDW.conf with notepad (run as administrator if you cant edit it!)
At the bottom delete:
[autoexec]
# Lines in this section will be run at startup.

[autoexec]
# Lines in this section will be run at startup.

@ECHO OFF
mount C "."
imgmount D game.inst -t iso
c:
cls
BMOUSE.EXE LAUNCH BLOOD.EXE -ini dw.ini
#dw
exit

And replace it with:
[autoexec]
# Lines in this section will be run at startup.

@ECHO OFF
mount C "."
imgmount D game.inst -t iso
c:
cls

Blood.EXE -ini dw.ini
exit

Now the DW GOG Shortcut will work!
I find the colour is completely off when it loads but but that is quickly fixed by simply going into video settings and changing resolution (to any value including the one it's already set to)

In addition, I find one needs to run the shortcut for Death Wish as administrator for it to work, the same goes for Cryptic Passage (right click and go into properties and tick the box in compatability to save time in future). The colour problem seems to have fixed itself after I changed the default resolution, ran DW then changed it back and ran DW again!

I dont know if it's intentional but Last Rites on Well Done difficulty after pickup the chest the game spawns only two priest. Additionaly even throwing them off the cliff not always open the doors as they can survive impact if at unscratched and full health, of course after transformation to the Beasts. At the end there's also alone Priests, just after grabbing Moon Key.
My version is the latest (1.3 with crispy patch) and Blood is OUWB from GOG with everything in the place as readme says.

Fo people who have problems with this running:

1. Unpack everything in your OUWB folder.
2. Edit dw.ini like this:

[Episode1]
CutSceneA=C:\dw1a.smk
CutWavA=C:\dw1a.wav
CutSceneB=C:\dw1b.smk
CutWavB=C:\dw1b.wav
Title = In Cold Blood
Map1 = dwe1m1
Map2 = dwe1m2
Map3 = dwe1m3
Map4 = dwe1m4
Map5 = dwe1m5
Map6 = dwe1m6
Map7 = dwe1m7
Map8 = dwe1m8
Map9 = dwe1m9
Map10 = dwe1m10

[Episode2]
CutSceneA=C:\dw2a.smk
CutWavA=C:\dw2a.wav
CutSceneB=C:\dw2b.smk
CutWavB=C:\dw2b.wav
Title = Scar Trek
Map1 = dwe2m1
Map2 = dwe2m2
Map3 = dwe2m3
Map4 = dwe2m4
Map5 = dwe2m5
Map6 = dwe2m6
Map7 = dwe2m7
Map8 = dwe2m8
Map9 = dwe2m9
Map10 = dwe2m10
Map11 = dwe2m11

[Episode3]
CutSceneA=C:\dw3a.smk
CutWavA=C:\dw3a.wav
CutSceneB=C:\dw3b.smk
CutWavB=C:\dw3b.wav
Title = War is Hell
Map1 = dwe3m1
Map2 = dwe3m2
Map3 = dwe3m3
Map4 = dwe3m4
Map5 = dwe3m5
Map6 = dwe3m6
Map7 = dwe3m7
Map8 = dwe3m8
Map9 = dwe3m9
Map10 = dwe3m10

3. Copy dosboxBlood.conf and rename it to something like dosboxBloodDW.conf
4. Edit this file and change it like this.

a) If you want DeathWish with BMOUSE support (change game.inst to game.gog if you want MIDI):

[autoexec]
# Lines in this section will be run at startup.

@ECHO OFF
mount C "."
imgmount D game.inst -t iso
c:
cls
NOLFB.COM
bmouse launch blood.exe -ini dw.ini
exit

b) If you want play DeathWish without BMOUSE (change game.inst to game.gog if you want MIDI):

[autoexec]
# Lines in this section will be run at startup.

@ECHO OFF
mount C "."
imgmount D game.inst -t iso
c:
cls
blood.exe -ini dw.ini
exit

4. Copy your One Unit Whole Blood shortcut on desktop and rename it. Edit properties like this (change drive and directory if path to your OUWB installation is different):

"D:\GOG.com\One Unit Whole Blood\DOSBOX\dosbox.exe" -conf dosboxBloodDW.conf -noconsole -c "exit"

5. Play this quality addon till it ends. ;-)
