Daniel Gimmer (also known as Tormentor667) is a German level designer, best known for his ZDoom-based projects, and also being the founder and maintainer of Realm 667, a popular resource site.

His personal project The Ultimate Torment & Torture won one of the 2007 Cacowards. Gimmer was also the project leader of various high profile ZDoom-based community projects such as Knee-Deep in ZDoom, Stronghold: On the Edge of Chaos, and the ZDoom Community Map Project: Take II, all of which won both a main award and the Mordeth award at the Cacowards in the years 2007, 2010, and 2013 respectively. Since 2016, he is also well-known for Wolfenstein: Blade of Agony, a standalone game for GZDoom inspired by the Wolfenstein universe and the WolfenDOOM series, of which the first episode received one of the 2016 Cacowards.

Gimmer's style is special effects driven, making liberal use of ZDoom advanced features such as slopes and custom monsters, and often features dramatic and cinematic environment design. His style is controversial; nevertheless, he is one of the most influential mappers of the 2000s and early 2010s, particularly in the ZDoom community.[1]

On February 25 2021, he announced his retirement from the Doom community.[2]
