Take control of any one of "The Chosen" -- four extraordinary characters who inhabit a dark near-future world reminiscent of Blade Runner and The Crow. Become Caleb, the vicious protagonist from the original Blood, his cold-blooded love Ophelia, the ruthless Ishmael, or the unrelenting warrior Gabriela. Blood 2’s weapons let you kill and be killed in more ways than any other 3D action game. Burn, electrocute, shoot, stab, voodoo, blow up, slowly dismember, or flay the skin from your opposition, and expect the same treatment right back!
Hell-0 again kiddies!!! Da Devil's Child returns once again for some more Blood Bath goodness. This is my 2nd effort in mapping, next to Impdemo. Playing BB and looking for good ideas, when there are plenty of good one out there ;) I took one of da funnest Shogo levels and converted it for BB. As you may know Shogo uses different textures than B2, which I've included in " Shogo.rez "

Unzip both Shogo.rez and BB_Midnight into your C:\games\blood2\custom folder. If you don't have this folder, make it by opening your main 2 folder, select File/new/folder(from da upper left hand corner of your window) and rename it Custom. Then select Shogo.rez after hitting da "Customize" button of your opening game window.
You'll notice da meticulous placement of ammo/items, instead of simply lumping a bunch of ammo in one spot, in da exact same spots as da Shogo original, plus some extra goodies >;/
Special attention was made to keep a "flow" to this level, and from making one weapon da sole gibbin machine of choice. This type of placement takes time and effort, but it more than pays off with gaming satifaction.
For you budding mappers out there, here's a tip: avoid placing da Invulnerabity(ie green) powerup. It's cheap, and once players become hip to its location it becomes a magnet, and can spoil any level's fun factor. Also, TEST ammo placement by yourself and with a friend. Run, jump, shoot, etc and see if you've paid attention to proper placement. After all, you're custom level deserves to be da best it can be!
This level and others coming down da pipeline from coffin and from others will be optimized to run with my forthcoming IW(Impworks) rez file. So what is it?
Here's a hint: ya like Q3/Shogo style ammo pickups?.........heheeh!
If you enjoy this level, send me feedback and I will consider converting other Shogo gems:
