"Ambitious and impressive" -Giant Bomb

"A real testament to what’s capable with the modern GZDoom engine" -Rock Paper Shotgun
"One of the most technically impressive things I've seen in a long time." -Kotaku

"A remarkable survival horror" -PC Gamer


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.

That's all folks

I've recently uploaded a new ZIP containing DC and DC Retro. Don't get too exited, all this does is fix some log-spam issues and a couple misaligned textures. From here on, there will be no further updates to the mod. Been a fun ride, but from here I need to move on to future projects.

Splinter says hi

Flatpak now available! (thanks to AsciiWolf)

You can download the Flatpak for Linux here:

Crashes... DAMN CRASHES!

Sadly, despite my word on the matter, I was not able to come to a conclusion about what could be causing the crashes some of you have been getting. My best guess is it is a memory issue. There is sadly not a lot I can do to resolve this. There was a lot of fudging during the creation of the mod, and it left little room for me to go back and resolve some of the issues which I believe may have caused this.

My best recommendations are to try downloading the latest GZDoom version and try running the .PK3 file through that, or to give the Retro Edition a go. This version has a significantly lower memory requirement.

The future of Total Chaos

At the moment of writing this, it remains largely unknown. I would love to revisit this universe at some point but there isn't anything immediately in the pipe that would say the next thing is 'not far off'. If anything further comes, it won't be for a few years at least. Time will tell.

Steam release? Would be nice, but in the mods current state that would not be possible. There have been thoughts about redoing the thing in a more modern engine but it would mean starting from scratch to some extent, and the older I've gotten, the more difficult it has been to put time into this thing. As for Doom modding, I won't be returning for future projects due to this as well.

The next project

Currently I am working on a stand-alone First Person Shooter project, some of you may know of it (even played a demo build of it too).

You can see more of it on the official Twitter page @turbo_overkill

Fingers crossed you'll all get to play it this year!

I'll try return to this page whenever I can, I wanted to thank you all for the continued support and sticking with the project. It has been a life-changing experience working on this thing.

Take care of yourselves!

This is a must-play mod. Even if you don't own DOOM II, it comes with a FreeDOOM IWAD.

Is not a pure Doom II mod, first you don't need that game, second is made on a heavily modified Doom II engine, with many modern capabilities implemented in it, capable of scenes simular to Doom 3 and beyond in the right hands.

I tried to replace GZDOOM files in Total Chaos Director's Cut 1.32 folder with latest version of GZDOOM, but the menu font became default and unreadable. Is there any way to change GZDOOM files in Total Chaos Director's Cut 1.32 folder with latest version of GZDOOM?

Honestly if you released this on Steam I would happily buy it to show my support.
Why isn't that possible in the mods current state?

The engine is GPL so is perfectly possible to make a comercial game with it, but I assume the reason this one is not, could be perhaps because not all the assets are permitted to be used in a comercial game? Only the maker of this really knows.
