Many many months ago, I had sort-of stumbled upon an article on KnowYourMeme about some kid's fan-fic of Doom. A game that is one of the first games I ever played growing up, so I hold it close and dear to my heart...when the Literature Portal launches, I'll elaborate...but this kid, "Peter Chimaera's" little fan-fic was so laughably bad, it was awesome.

Perusing through some of the derivatives that came through his all-around malformed story, I thought I could have a spot of fun by recording my own dramatic reading of it. So, in a matter of hours, I had recorded lines in different voices, threw in some sound effects I had lying around, and even arranged a soundtrack off my library. The sound file complete, it laid dormant in my hard-drive until I found the time to get around to it for an unpredictable amount of time.

Fast forward to Fall Semester 2010 at Collin County Community College; I'm taking Advanced 2D Flash Animation, and the professor told us to pretty much go nuts. Do whatever, anything at all. Hogabeast and I were STILL working on our Starfox parody at the time, but it contained some...not so school friendly material. Though in hindsight, the professor probably wouldn't have cared, I decided to delay the Starfox thing for the umpteenth time (sorry Adam) and storyboarded the .wav of my dramatic reading to Doom:RoE.

So, in the span of the entire semester, plus a couple of days (I presented the final with lip-syncs unfinished, Lost Souls disappearing in transitions, and the ending chunk still in storyboard form, and the class still seemed to dig it) I made this little gem to both entertain a Newgrounds audience and whomever stumbled across the same KnowYourMeme article like I did.

I had a LOT of fun working on this. For the anal reviewers, keep in mind I did it with the spirit of creative license, but please share your thoughts in the review section completely and thoroughly...one or few word reviews are pointless unless it's conveying WHY you did or did not like it.

I hope you enjoy it! Now I'm off to keep pumping out some animation and art! I'm ambitiously hoping to have a significantly higher output for animations in 2011...but I said that last year too, huh? lol

The music is 99.9% Audio Portal (There's one swelling note from the original soundtrack left in there from when Stalvern's Dad informs him he will be KILL BY DEMONS) and I gotta say, there's some real talent out there. YOU DON'T NEED COPYRIGHT PROTECTED MUSIC, TANK PEOPLE. Seek & Deploy! :D

Ha ha ha

I love all the little visual references to the text. I also like that you used lots of different art styles throughout.

I would just like to note that many of the people below me don't seem to have read Doom: Repercussions of Evil which is a shame because it is a CLASSIC.

Thanks! I really tried to experiment around with this. Were there any particular art-styles you favored in particular?

I appreciate the review! And yeah, people...y'all are missing out. I had no idea until I started browsing around on that KnowYourMeme dot com site. :P

WELL JOBBED

Excellent pacing through-out, I especially enjoyed the little details that make it worth watching again (the notes written to the "cernal", etc.)

I did feel the section immediately after the flashback was a little weak compared to the rest of the animation though. Still very impressed!

Subtitles may have been a good option to emphasize the awesome spelling and grammar that Mr. Chimaera is (in)famous for.

Phobotech responds:

Yeahhh, I admittedly got pretty sloppy around the flashback. It was one of those situations, not unlike when working on Zone of the Awesome or Dick Neck, where I had been working on it for so long, that I was steadily becoming more and more sick of it. In those areas, it was definitely rushed. (As well as the Zombie scene and to an extent, the credits.)

Ahh, yeah, and I forgot to learn how to make subtitles! I'll have to work on that in the future :P

Thanks a whole bunch, James! Sorry I couldn't implement the Dad whacking Lil' Stalvern with his eyes like a billy club like we talked about in class. lol

Good parody.

I haven't played the Doom games, but I do know what it is and this flash pratically made the film version like a pile of donkey poop.

The narration (monologue) was well written and had its moments. The dialogue from the characters was not overly done. The twist came out of nowhere, but it made me laugh out loud completely.

The animation was done beautifully. No smudges or either any crappy lines were seen. If there were any, you did a spectacular job hiding them from us. I also love your color choices. It gave the flash a dark undertone. Another thing I liked was the facial expressions you gave the characters. They put a smile on my face. The characters were just awesome as well. You did a great job making them look believable, expecially that huge monster with the bull's horns.

I don't know what else to say. What I can say is that this was a great flash and I hope you get 1st place for the daily feature and a frontpage because you deserve it.

Keep up the good work.

I'm thankful I haven't seen the Doom movie yet. I hear I'm not missing much...

The narration, word-for-word, was memorized and read off of Peter Chimaera's "Doom: Repercussions of Evil" story unabridged, and I'm happy you thought I did a good job reading it :D

I'm also happy you dug the animation! Thank you! I make those goofy expressions to extract smiles from an audience, so I'm pleased they did it's job.

Thanks very much for the great review! Will-do :)
