Ni'mRoD - IXNAY on the HOMBRE


Ni'mRoD - IXNAY on the HOMBRE (also simply known as Nimrod) is a Doom II cyberpunk total conversion for Doom Legacy made by Unholy Software with development lead by Kristian Käll (Kristus). Its subtitle in Pig Latin and Spanish is a reference to the fourth studio album by American punk band The Offspring. It contains new sprites for replacement enemies and weapons, along with 10 large single player levels. The environments include Doom Legacy 3D floors, voice-acting for incoming radio calls, and make extensive use of FraggleScript. The first map opens with a game of cards, similar to Tom Hall's Doom Bible introduction.

The project took four years to develop and its initial release was on July 23, 2002.[1] An updated version to support running the WAD in GZDoom was uploaded to the idgames archive on September 11, 2005.[2]

Nimrod was followed by multiplayer sequel Ni'mRoD - Project Doom in December 2005.



New enemies[edit]

Ni'mRoD features a selection of artificial humans known as DOOMs, who fill the roles of former humans and their variants.

Security Guard
The first batch of DOOMs created, they wear grey pants and a tank top. Their head and arm have been replaced with cybernetics. There are three types, one with 20 hit points that fires once, one with 30 hit points that fire repeatedly, and one 45 hit points that also fires repeatedly.
The end goal of Project DOOM, they wear grey pants and a yellow shirt. Their right arm has been replaced with a panzer bullet chaingun. They usually come in detachments of 3-8 soldiers and have 70 hit points.
A further revision of the original DOOM, sargs are dressed in green pants with matching tank top. They pack a mayhem gun and are quick on the draw. They have 170 hit points. A version of the sarg known as the "access sarg" drops an eyeball on death and has 100 hit points.

Alongside DOOMs, the armies of Hell have seen some enhancements.

Mutant Imp
A sickly green imp with white eyes whose hands glow yellow when attacking. They have 50 hit points (10 less than normal), but are slightly faster.
Mauler Demon
A large shadowy gray demon with red eyes. It can do a charge attack that crosses great distances. They have 150 hit points.
A paler Hell noble that behaves very similarly to an arch-vile, though with a faster attack, no resurrection capability, and slower speed. They have 700 hit points.
