Doom the Way id Did: The Lost Episodes is a 2012 megawad for The Ultimate Doom containing six new episodes totalling fifty-five levels created with maps submitted to Doom the Way id Did which did not make the final cut. Episodes 5 and 6 require either a ZDoom-based port or Eternity Engine in order to be playable. Alternatively, episode 5, except for the bonus map E5M0: Starport, is also available as a vanilla-compatible episode in a separate file, DTWID-E5.wad. As a mere curiosity, there is a third PWAD, DTWID-LX.wad, meant to be loaded after the main compilation, DTWID-LE.wad, which contains the potentially unpolished and unfinished original versions of certain maps.

In 2016 it received the Mordeth Award of the 23rd Annual Cacowards and was uploaded to idgames archive.
