AstroCreep has given us another classic game to run in ECWolf; this time Wolfendoom, by one of the creators of Spear Resurrection and Spear: End of Destiny.
Wolfendoom came out in 2000, and remains one of the more popular Wolf3D mods to rely heavily on DOOM’s source material without straying far from the Wolfenstein formula of gameplay. AReyeP’s mod gives us 60 levels, with sounds and graphics from DOOM to create a very different atmosphere.
This release of course means that thanks to AstroCreep you can now play it on ECWolf, which along with the Wolf4SDL port gives you two ways to play on modern systems!
Edit: The ports have been updated with a small bug fix. Current downloads have been updated.
AstroCreep brings us another classic collection of mods ported to ECWolf, this time the first three Mutantstein games by John Bucksnort and Harry Mass Sr!
The Mutantstein games were released throughout 2000-2001, and were memorable titles in the community’s history. John Bucksnort was renowned in the community for his challenging mods, and his history as a WWII veteran, and status as one of the eldest modders of the community (He started when he was 80!)
The games were originally made in DOS, but have since been ported to both Wolf4SDL and now ECWolf, allowing modern players to experience them without emulators!
Samuel Villarreal, one of the people behind the recent Blood remaster ‘Fresh Supply’, posted a tweet where he confirms to be working on a new source port for ‘Rise of the Triad: Dark War’. Also that he is a nerd.
With very few modern ports available for ROTT, it will be nice to have a new and polished way to play the most advanced game developed on the Wolf3D engine!
In the meantime, there are still source ports available to play the game on modern Windows; check out WinRottAPI for one!
Note: On some operating systems, there may be an error with the music (Which is created by Orka himself!). If that’s the case, AstroCreep has created a music patch to fix the problem. Download this and load it alongside the game, and the problem should go away. Also, the music is pretty good.
