Hello everyone !

Shadow over the Pathoras 3D is an ECWolf port of Shadow over the Pathoras for GZDoom, which I created 2 years ago.

The Story: In year 1650 the Holy Roman emperor Ferdinand III. sends a royal naval officer William Wolf and his assistant to England due to important naval business. On their way they get caught by a storm, so they decide to anchor near an unknown island. What they don't know is, that the island is a part of an empire named Pathoras. 20 years before their arrival a tragedy took place in the Pathoras. During an excavation local miners found an ancient entrance to hell on one of the islands. Shortly after the discovery a 10 years long war begun against "the invaders from beneath". Citizens of the Pathoras lost the war and a bunch of traitors started to rule the Pathoras after. William finds an entrance to an old mine on the shore of the unknown island, but when he enters it, the entrance caves in. Wolf must find out, what happened in the Pathoras, join the rebels and help them to bring the old times back.

This project was active approx. a year ago, but I ran into some problems which I could not fix. A few days ago I decided to give it another try. Luckily this time I found ECWolf guides by AstroCreep, which helped me to solve the problems I had with ECWolf a year prior. The mod still needs a lot of polish (the combat is clunky, although this is partially W3D engine´s fault, proper working keybar etc...) but I hope I can push it into a 2 - 3 level demo soon. I also made one big change - the mod is now using Spear of Destiny as a base instead of Wolfenstein 3D for practical reasons. Here is a gameplay of map03, which I recently finished:

That´s all for now, but stay tuned for future updates !
