Feature

For this recurring segment, we will be highlighting the five biggest stories on ModDB for the prior week. Whether it's new mod announcements, major mod releases, or important stories that affect the mod scene as a whole, you'll find them rounded up here each week.


The Week of July 13 2018



Castlevania: Simon's Destiny is a non-profit GZDOOM based fangame born as a love letter to this legendary franchise. This mod aims to reinvent the very first NES title of the franchise with a nostalgic yet brand new first person gameplay.


Skyrim Realistic Overhaul 1.8 mod contains 10gb of high quality 2048k/4096k textures. It drastically increase quality while keeping artistic look of original textures. This version is for Special Edition of Skyrim, but it can be used with original version too.


Venom Mod is a general improvement of original RTCW game, with a new challenging and aggressive AI and some exploitation of features of iD Tech 3 engine, keeping the original gameplay.


Earlier this year, we reported on job listings posted to Microsoft’s official Careers page that hinted at new roles within the company dedicated to exploring mod support for Xbox games. Now, a new report from Windows Central contains details from a presentation intended for Microsoft internally and other development partners that goes into greater detail on what this initiative actually involves.


DOOM meets Deus Ex. This map is a love letter to cyberpunk genre as a whole and the Deus Ex franchise in particular. Using the whole new set of custom made textures, the project aims to recreate the look and vibe of an unethical near future corporation run by the forces of hell.

This looks great! I need to try it. I hope you guys consider remaking Simon's Quest in the future, it's by far my favorite of the Castlevania games

It reminds me of the classic 3d MegaMan game, which was phenominal

I can say as a big fan of Castlevania that if Konami went first person it would look kind of like this this game is really good and it feels like a Castlevania game due to how frustrating it is. Great Job

Too bad that this mod does not work with Zandronum. Cause i have a lots of problems with GZDoom, like brown screen instead of main menu in the game.

Is there a way of getting health back? I know the original Castlevania was brutally difficult, but I can't even complete the first level without dying. The hearts seem to only work as knife ammunition. Please help.

Some stone pillars may look more fragile than others which can be destroyed by your whip may contain meat which gives you health.

One of the most impressive uses of Doom to make a totally new game that I've seen yet. It looks and feels just like Castlevania.
