Surge DM is a 32 level deathmatch megawad released on Christmas Day 1998. It contains small maps designed for 1v1 duels, many being completely symmetrical layouts containing only a single room. It was organized by Nick Baker (NiGHTMARE) as a tribute to Overload Deathmatches released four months earlier in August 1998. Surge uses a custom texture set by Nick Baker for a winter castle theme. Most of the new textures are modifications of original artwork by Ola Björling found in Overload and The Darkening.

A sequel megawad Surge DM II for Boom compatible source ports followed in August 2000.
