Eviternity is a megawad comprised of six 5-map episodes (called Chapters) plus two secret maps. Eviternity's six chapters explore a series of unique and varied themes, each featuring classic gameplay with an interest in making each map hold its own unique identity and personality. The themes are "Medieval", "Techbase", "Icy Castles", "Industrial / Brutalism", "Hell / Gore / Alien" and "Heaven". This project exclusively uses OTEX, a brand new high quality texture pack by ukiro. While mostly being a "Dragonfly project", with 24 maps being made or heavily worked on by Dragonfly, we present to you a mighty lineup of well-known guest mappers who have crafted beautiful and fun levels. Since the initial release we've worked hard for an additional two months working on the now-final version of Eviternity! We hope you enjoy Eviternity, thanks for downloading & playing!
Dukeboss is proud to announce that version 2.0 of Alien Armageddon will be released on February 16, 2019. Weighing in at just over 150 MB, this small download packs a huge punch, expanding on Duke Nukem 3D with a host of new enemies, NPCs, weapons, Bombshell the playable character, and much more. Retro-shooter fans rejoice: we stay true to the style and attitude that makes Duke 3D one of the greatest shooters of all time.
The Shadow of the Ramlord is the first Amnesia Modification by Dark Craft Studios, as well as the final modification to be made by us, capping off an unofficial trilogy of Lovecraftian madness. Utilizing both Amnesia and Machine for Pigs Assets, we hope to strike a measured balance between game play, immersion and story-first narrative.
