Madness has arrived...

Total Chaos is a total conversion mod for Doom 2 that runs on the GZDoom source port. The mod is a survival horror set on a remote island known as Fort Oasis. The island was once run by a community of coal miners which one day suddenly disappeared, leaving behind the abandoned concrete jungle to waste away.

Something, clearly, has gone very wrong with this place. Upon your arrival at Fort Oasis, you receive a strange radio transmission. Someone wants to be found. Survive in 6 chapters, against over 8 horrifying fiends with a large assortment of weapons. The mod with the assistance of the source ports introduces many new graphical features, including 3D models and high resolution textures.

The mod is a survival horror set on a remote island known as Fort Oasis. The island was once run by a community of coal miners which one day suddenly disappeared, leaving behind the abandoned concrete jungle to waste away.

Something, clearly, has gone very wrong with this place. Upon your arrival at Fort Oasis, you receive a strange radio transmission. Someone wants to he found. The further you travel into the concrete jungle, the more the situation ends up unraveling, and where you were heading is no longer clear. Find letters scattered around the world and uncover the mystery of what happened.


Survive in 6 chapters

Explore the island of Fort Oasis in 6 chapters. In these chapters you will fight through apartments, utility tunnels, shopping centers, before reaching the city center and the mines that await you.

Fight against horrifying fiends

In every chapter, you will encounter new and even more horrifying creations. Each one processing their own unique attack patterns. Learning these is vital to surviving the oncoming onslaught.

Dispatch of them with a large assortment of weapons

Use anything you can find on the island to fight against the forces of evil. There are guns, but ammo for them is incredibly hard to come by. You will mostly be relying on tireirons, pickaxes, shivs and garden tools. Most of these can be crafted and some can be upgraded to wield more powerful blows.

The mod with the assistance of the source ports introduces many new graphical features, including 3D models and high resolution textures.

Introducing the Total Chaos Directors Cut, due April next year. This version adds 2.5 – 3 hours of extra content to Total Chaos, expanding the story-line and adding many new goodies including more enemies, weapons and chapters.

Total Chaos - Standalone (1.00.0)


3.5 New Chapters

The upcoming expansion content will add 3 new chapters interlaced into the standard campaign. The chapters include:

  • Madness, fight along a coastal district through abandoned police stations and utility holdings to unlock a security gate from a nearby offshore prison. The only twist, is the prison is submerged under the ocean.
  • Forgotten, fight through a suburban district on the south side of Fort Oasis in one of the biggest and most open maps ever made for Total Chaos.
  • Crossroads, fight through a forest at the foot of Fort Oasis’ central district.

Along with the new chapters, several changes and extensions have been added to the current collection of maps, including added boss battle arenas!

11+ New Weapons

The Directors Cut will also include 11 new weapons, including the Pipe SMG and Revolver pistol. Along with these, there will also be deployables, including bear traps and landmines.

Crafting will come with significant improvements too, including the ability to strengthen weakened weapons and to sharpen most of your melee arsenal to add a damage boost.

The amount of items you will find on Fort Oasis has been drastically increased also, allowing the ability to find different armor sets to improve the odds of your survival.

But with more weapons and armor, comes even more powerful foes…

7+ New Enemies

The enemy roster will have significant increases, including The Rotten (seen above), a monster that rushes in packs.

The current enemy roster will also see improvements, including Brutes having the ability to wield melee weapons!

Expected Release?

Currently I’m aiming for a April 2019 release, although this could change depending on how development goes from here.

Originally I planned to split this content up into 3 separate updates, although ultimately I figured this would cause fatigue in replaying the mod over and over again to experience it.

In saying that, after the release of the Directors Cut, there aren’t any immediate plans to make more expansion content, although we’ll see how it goes.

More info soon, stay tuned!

Replaces Doom 2 actors to TC ones so you can play Doom 2 maps with Total Chaos's items/enemies. You'll still need Total Chaos to play with this.

I'm really looking forward to the DC. Total Chaos is a massive achievement, for me absolutely on par with so called "AAA"-productions.

When ever i try to launch the mod it says "ERROR: Could not find valid INI file or GZDoom.exe". I have gzdoom installed and it works. Does anyone know to fix this?

Never had a chance to replay to get the Good Ending. :-) Decided to wait for the DC. Had a question though - will there be the same requirements to get the better resolve, or are you planning, considering new levels, to make a few extra routes for the happily (sorta) ever after?
