|Start up screen for Refracted Reality|
Refracted Reality is a megawad for Doom II using the GZDoom source port, led by killerkouhai. It consists of 15 surreal, otherworldly maps set in highly colorful environments, utilizing many custom graphics and ample GZDoom features and visual effects, but otherwise keeping the same weapons and enemies as vanilla, with the only exception being a new monster serving as the final boss, the Arbiter.
Development for the project started in 2018, and RC1 was first released on April 19, 2020. Cycling interest and disinterest resulted in a series of delays until RC2 was eventually released on May 9, 2021, followed by a final release on May 15th. It was uploaded to the /idgames archive on June 12, 2021.
