MyHouse.wad

by Veddge and Thomas.

This is a custom level for Doom 2! Just a normal map of someone’s house, it seems?

… ok, ok, there’s more here than first appears. Part of what makes this cool is that it’s a “doom” thing, but don’t worry, you don’t need to be a true doom murderhead to appreciate it.

I recommend reading Eevee’s “gradually-unfolding list of tips” once you’ve played through the level!

[Download doom .pk3 file]

How to play a doom level in 2023:

  • First, just grab the level from the link above.
  • Next, download the latest version of GZDoom.
  • You ideally need a doom .WAD file from the commercial version of Doom 2 at this point – look for a DOOM2.WAD file in any version of Doom 2 and copy it into the GZDoom folder. (there are other options here if you don’t have Doom 2, but you’ll have to figure those out on your own.)
  • Drag the myhouse.pk3 file on to gzdoom.exe, and the level will start:

Zipline Obby

by Wild Roleplay.

Oh hey, I recognise that zipline! It’s EgoMoose‘s zipline script! (I used it myself in Climb the Giant Man.) What’s that? You’ve somehow made a huge 150 stage obby focused on it? Whattttt

So, this is a classic “blue sky” Roblox obby, which is a popular obby flavour that I have a guilty pleasure fondness for. You can see the whole world at once. Stages are short, and usually trivial. It’s often less about making each level stand out, and more about just having a lot of content with an occasional difficulty spike to keep things interesting. They’re great to play with a group, in ways you wouldn’t necessarily expect. I’m sort of fascinated by them.

Anyway, this game is definitely in that genre, and most of the levels are pretty simple. The way the zipline script works is that you hop on one end, and you’re zipped along to the end, with no further input needed. Honestly, I wouldn’t have thought there was much you could do with that, from a level design standpoint, but this game really surprised me! Cool game, with a lot of cool ideas, especially as you get further in.
