Some of Cyb's earlier WADs are of a lesser quality than his later ones. These include:
In between 2004 and 2006 he was working on a Void sequel as well as a ZDoom megawad, Doom Jr. 2 (which was not supposed to mimic the extremely poor quality of the first one). Neither of these projects have been finished and Cyb has not worked on them since 2006.
