I am currently working on a melee only character for the DungeonDoom mod. This character class features:
-fighter-like combo style gameplay with special offensive and evasive moves.
-various sword-type weapons.
-dynamic camera changing from 'follow' to 'overhead' modes based on camera visibility.
-all the other rpg-stuff found in DungeonDoom.
Of course, all the other character classes will still be available. The Cardmaster (collectible card style gameplay debuted in version 7xp) will get some updates in the form of various additional cards and also some additional challenges. Check out here for additional shots of the ninja. Or check out various screenshots of the current version here
