Sunlust is a 32-map megawad for Boom-compatible source ports, created by Zachary Stephens (Ribbiks) and Daniel Jakobsson (dannebubinga). It is notorious for its high level of difficulty.[1]

Development started in March 2013, and the first public beta was released on June 13, 2015. The final version was released to the idgames archive on August 9, 2015, and it won a Cacoward that year.



MAP30 earns its reputation as a difficult slaughter map.

Three speedrunners have completed the very difficult D2all UV max of this mapset. Daerik did it first in 2020 with a time of 4 hours and 23 minutes. Then Nevanos took the record the following year in 4 hours flat. In 2023, KineticBeverage set a new record of 2 hours and 57 minutes.
