With the first title of the series being released in 1993, Doom is inarguably one of the most modded games in history, right next to Skyrim. And if Doom’s hyperrealistic mode Hideous Destructor wasn’t enough for you, Mexican games developer Calavera Studio just announced MiniDoom 2, the sequel of the 2D Sidescroller released back in 2016.
What the Hell is MiniDoom 2?
Though many things can be said about Doom, ‘mini’ isn’t the right word to describe it. Since the concept was first marketed, the game had three sequels, an expansion pack, and who knows how many fan-made mods.
And now, Calavera Studio, a Mexico-based games developer, has just announced that MiniDoom, the 2D sidescrolling parody released back in 2016, will have a sequel with more levels, bigger guns, and tons of foes to slay.
Similar to its predecessor, MiniDoom 2 will also feature the same 2D interface, but with improved graphics, sprites, and Doom-inspired sound effects.
According to the studios, the new MiniDoom will have four game modes, five difficulty levels, 14 weapons, some of them not even feature in the original series, 17 levels, and two bosses.
And if that isn’t enough to pique your interest, Calavera’s version of Doom also has a nightmare mode which makes the gameplay similar to Cuphead. Of course, no Doom-based game can ever be complete without including some of the enemies that gave us so many nightmares such as the Revenant, Mancubus, the flying heads, or the Hell Knights.
What’s even cooler is that the game is free of charge and can be downloaded directly from websites such as GameJolt. However, do keep in mind that this game was developed by volunteers, so be sure to leave a donation on Calavera Studio’s official page.
Happy hunting, guys!
