Dark 7 (sometimes styled Dark7) is a ZDoom mod created by Bryant Robinson (Gunrock). As part of their 10 Years of Doom feature, Doomworld named it one of the ten best WADs of 2002, jointly with its sequel.
In Dark 7, the protagonist carries out a stealth mission in an arctic base, in the style of contemporary 3D titles such as 007: Tomorrow Never Dies or Syphon Filter. Monster combat largely retains the vanilla mechanics, but ZDoom's scripting is used to restrict the player's possible routes and tally the mission objectives.
The WAD's idgames release fell victim to a technical glitch wherein it was dropped from the local mirrors. Reuploading a few months later seemed to restore the download links, according to the author, but the issue was still being reported as late as 2011.
