Info about the WIP GZDoom adventure The Phantom of the Opera.

Hello everyone !


I would like to present you my latest project.

The Phantom of the Opera is a WIP adventure for GZDoom based on the famous romantic/horror novel The Phantom of the Opera by Gaston Leroux from 1920.

The story takes place in Palais Garnier opera house in year 1900. The opera house is believed to be haunted by an entity called the Phantom of the Opera by the opera house staff. At a gala performance for the retirement of the opera house's managers, a young little-known Swedish soprano, Christine Daaé, is called upon to sing in the place of the Opera's leading soprano. The main hero - Vicomte Raoul de Chagny, who was present at the performance, recognises her as his childhood playmate, and recalls his love for her. He attempts to visit her backstage, where he hears a man complimenting her from inside her dressing room. He investigates the room once Christine leaves, only to find it empty. After this incident Raoul starts his own investigation to find out, what is really going on in the opera house.

The gameplay will consists of exploration of the locations, dialogues, collecting items and solving various puzzles.

Planned features (for now) :

  • 2 different endings based on the book/film endings
  • cutscenes combined with a footage from the 1925 film adaptation
  • GLDEF lighting, switchable lamps

Note : This a very large and complicated project which will take a long time to complete and I do not have enough graphic resources and skill to complete it by myself. For these reasons I am looking for help among you guys. If you are interested in this project and have some skills with pixel art/doom mapping/ACS, feel free to leave a comment here or PM me - additional help would be really appreciated !

I like this mod concept. And I'd like to help you. BTW, you helped me with GBA Doom 1 hacking, and I still appreciate this. Count me in.

Thanks for the interest - I really appreciate it. What would you like to do (maps, graphics etc.) ?

Mostly graphics, sounds, music, decorate, acs. I can do maps, but I have too much projects so I can't create the whole levels at present time.

Graphics is alright. I am missing character sprites for the phantom. I think, that the best base for him is Caleb from Blood.

He has (due to story events) 3 different versions - masked wearing a hat (Caleb´s one is okay, you can keep it in), masked wearing a cape(just remove the edges of the hat) and unmasked with no head covering. I think the best solution is to get rid of the guns in Caleb´s hands and then just change the head. The masked version of the phantom should wear some kind of a white/gray skull-like mask (like this : Imgur.com ). For the unmasked version I am not sure - it´s up to you - there is an example of his face from the 1925 film version for inspiration : I.vimeocdn.com.

What you think about it ? Would it be possible ? You have as much time as you need - I am not hurrying you.

I think it's possible. And your choice of spriting base (Caleb) is really good for this. I'll try to do this. In any case, I'll send to you a PM.
