Obituary

Obituary is a 1995 Doom II megawad by The Innocent Crew. It contains 17 new single player levels, three new monsters via a DeHackEd patch, some new graphics, and an optional weapon patch which replaces four weapons. Two new deathmatch maps are included as well.

LevelsEdit

New monstersEdit

There are three new monsters in Obituary. The "Harder Imp" looks identical to the standard Imp, but moves faster and shoots green fireballs. The "Bazooka Man" (named "Rocket Zombie" on Realm 667) is a former human wielding a powerful rocket launcher. While the damage he deals is high, his health is comparable to the shotgun guy's. He often happens to kill himself in cramped spaces with the splash damage of his own rockets. The third new enemy is described as the "hightech guy" in the manual ("Stealth Fighter" on Realm 667). He moves very fast, fires dual-wielded machineguns and wears full body armor with an integrated cloaking device that can render him semi-invisible. Lastly, the Commander Keen sprites have been replaced by a mutilated player but its behavior remains unchanged.

Weapon patchEdit

The optional weapon patch replaces the players fist with a kick attack, implementing new graphics for the Doom marines boots. Instead of the pistol, the player starts with dual wielded pistols with a higher rate of fire. The plasma gun is replaced by a flamethrower with very high damage in close combat, but limited range. It uses the standard energy cells as ammunition. The ultimate weapon is the Sonic P300 Booster, a powerful sonic weapon replacing the BFG9000.

InstallationEdit

Installing Obituary requires the use of TiC's tool, NWT. However, this is not a straightforward task. The DSDA has a pre-built version included in their copy of the package, found in the "fixed" folder.

TriviaEdit

Obituary can be found in the Maximum Doom compilation included with id Software's original release of the Master Levels for Doom II, albeit without the intended DeHackEd patches.
