Från Mars-baser till djungeln i Viet... Doom.

Vi har skrivit om Brutal Doom ett antal gånger, en mod som inte bara gör spelet slafsigare men som också har en trevlig egenkomponerad kampanj du kan panga dig igenom. Nu när betan denna "total conversion" (Google it, kids!) är klar har skaparen börjat snegla på andra projekt och närmast till hands ligger ytterligare en skapelse i Doom-motorn.

Den första videon på VietDoom dök nyss upp på Youtube med ett löfte om att en alpha-version ska släppas redan i år med runt tio banor. Fullversionen ska ha en kampanj som trots att den grundar sig i verklighetens konflikt kommer att få övernaturliga inslag.

It takes place during late war, 1968 and onwards. All the cool toys are accessible, the North has a lot of tanks and heavy ordinance, and there are huge battles happening everywhere.
The first campaign is some kind of test campaign, made to balance combat and test assets. They are loosely inspired on NAM`s maps, taking place in no particularly realistic locations, with random missions such as searching and destroying supplies, ambushing convoys, and rescuing missing pilots and POWs. This one won`t take long to come out.

The actual campaign (this one may take some years) will have a supernatural twist (because this is Doom, and anything related to Doom needs to have some demons) and is pretty much an adventure re-imagining Apocalypse Now`s story (if you ever played or heard of Heart of Evil (Moddb.com), you may have an idea of what I am talking about).
Yes, ridiculous plot, but not as ridiculous as NAM`s idea of making a super mutant american soldier that changes history and wins the war single-handedly. It`s no spoiler that the US loses the war.
