What is this?
This is a Mod for DooM Made for the Zandronum and GZDoom Sourceports
DooM? Mod? what?!
Yup this isn't a game per se, but one that you can add to your game to play.
Okaaayy? what are the requirements then?
For more info about it, consult this video here, pretty much covers all the bases you need, It has even links for stuff like sourceports and mod loader which you shall need them for a very breezy experience.
Okay can you tell me about this mod?
Sure, this mod allows you to play as Pico it features Many thing such as:
- A Unique arsenal of 9 weapons.
Technically 8 but still, Use your rifle to plow through enemies, Your pencil as a melee weapon of choice, The uzis to make em eat lead, Your medical herb for when you are in a pinch, and more!
- A unique mechanic tied to Pico himself "Marking!"
Pico ain't no space marine so he doesn't have the pockets for a lot of ammunition, but what he can do is procure it himself via marking his enemies by pressing altfire! (Remember to bind the keys in the controll options along with reload button), when marked enemies tend to take more damage and if you kill them when being affected by it you get ammunition out of it, you might get even more if you melee them!
- Cheat codes!
Fun for the whole family, well somewhat but still!
- Compatibility with monster mods.
Every doom gameplay mod are all known to run on mapsets that do not use custom weapons and what not, some also replace monsters to make them more functional to the gameplay, but this one doesn't! you can load upmonster replacement mods like Combined_Arms Malefactors, Doom Rougelike arsenal Monsters, Iron Snail monster (for those who like Metal slug, they will love this mod also!), Babel Monsters (for those who want less primitive demons!), Ranpancy (for those who like to kill robots than demons!) to list a few!
it also supports Gore mods like Nashgore
What isn't supported Is brutal doom or any gameplay mod stuff would clash, if you want the monsters there is a mod for that on moddb
For those who are just finished with doom(sequel and expansions) and want more, here are some Good mapset to try the mod with (though i'd recommend playing vanilla first.)
KamaSutra (it has nothing that you think it has, unless you count playing doom as sex.)
Back to Saturn X episode 1 (Might give Techbase fatigue but it gives you a challange if you want one!)
Doomer board Project 33: Rainy days in casablanca (Hella creative theemed maps about proibition era, with Red to add to it, shame pico doesn't abide to the rules!)
MayHem Orange Edition! (Totally not picking it because i made a map for it, nono)
MayHem Purple Edition! (Totally picking it because i like red, yes!)
this is to list a few, i'd recommend checking out the cacowards for more mapsets and stuff, who knows.
WHEN IT'S PICODAY!
