Technical information[edit]

Inspiration and development[edit]

  • The level shares the same map name and start room of E1M5 in Dawn of the Dead which is an episode replacement made by Jan Van der Veken in 1997. Jan never completed the level so he left a placeholder room in DOAD's beta 2 build that eventually became the final version on the idgames archive.
  • To create the lost replacement of "Outpost 666," Jan created most of the new layout. Anthony Soto added the rooms after the yellow key doors and refined the map's overall gameplay.
  • The level was originally released as a standalone WAD titled Doom Classic 6: Dawn of the Dead revisited - Outpost 666. It was uploaded by Anthony to the idgames archive in September 2000.
  • The Classic Episode's modified version makes several changes to classic6.wad:
