    My pals at the Russian Doom Community have just released Ascension, an ambitious RPG mod based on GZDoom - a source port of the original Doom.

    The game features 19 levels, including a large city, sprawling dungeons and forests, dozens of NPCs, numerous quests, a few cranky puzzles and many other features you'd expect from an average RPG, but not a Doom mod ;)

    By the way, I translated the whole thing into English (with some bits by another translator), and damn, its huge!

    More info and downloads:
    English:
    ZDoom • View topic - Ascension (Release, v 1.3) - by Big Memka and Shadowman

    Russian:
    Ascension (Release) v1.1 - Russian Doom Community

    Note, that the game is not standalone and requires both GZDoom and doom2.WAD data. The latter can be obtained from any version of PC Doom 2 (which can be bought at gog.com or Steam), while GZDoom is freely available here: ZDoom - Downloads

    The latest 64-bit build is recommended (v4.3.3). The mod may not run and/or crash with any other version of the source port.

    Enjoy!

    P.S. Screenies:

    The [Z]Doom community has always been alive and well. I hope I will have enough time to re-visit their forums again on a regular basis someday.
