Samsara is a class-based gameplay mod for ZDoom and Zandronum by TerminusEst13. It features characters from many classic FPS games, with each having own weapons and abilities. Version 0.3, the current version, received one of the Multiplayer Awards during the 2013 Cacowards.
Samsara features eight characters from different FPS games from the 90's. Since it is a multiplayer-focused mod, all characters have specific strengths and weaknesses. For example, Duke Nukem excels at crowd control, but has the worst defenses.
|Chex Warrior||Chex Quest||Defense|
|B.J. Blazkowicz||Wolfenstein 3D||Marksman|
|Duke Nukem||Duke Nukem 3D||Crowd control|
|Prisoner 849 *||Unreal||N / A|
* The character has not been implemented yet.
Samsara includes different client variables for gameplay options. For instance, in the upcoming version 0.31, there is togglable gore.
- The mod's creator, TerminusEst13, has stated on multiple occasions that he will not add Strifeguy from Strife and Caleb from Blood to the roster, despite frequent requests. He will not add Strifeguy for balance reasons and Caleb because the character's attacks are too similar to those of others.
