The Legacy is a Doom II episode WAD released in March 2001 and designed by Yashar Garibzadeh (GeminI), with one guest map by Kim Roar Foldøy Hauge (Zokum). Four of the maps are deathmatch-only, the others are single player levels.

Three of the levels (MAP01, 02 and 08) require The Darkening Episode 2 to be loaded as a texture pack. MAP09 is a modification of MAP03, of which MAP06 is the somewhat trimmed deathmatch variant, while MAP07 is the DM variant of MAP02.

Development history[edit]

MAP04 was originally designed by Kim Roar Foldøy Hauge (Zokum) and not by Zokum and Reep as stated in the text file. The origin of the author confusion is most likely the WAD file's name, zokreep.wad. The name references the demo1 players, Zokum and Reep (his cousin). Yashar never asked for permission to re-texture and release this map, but mentioned it to Kim in 2016 in a Facebook conversation. Kim was unaware of this release although Yashar thought he had been given permission. Since Kim was credited, the matter was settled amicably.

Yashar had been sent the map in the late 90s or early 2000s. The map was originally a tekgreen style map featuring scrolling credits in the north-west corner but these were replaced with SP_FACE1 in Yashar's version. The original version has never been released.
