Doom Fortress - Team Fortress clone for the Doom engine
This is a mod for Doom or, more specifically, for [Skulltag]; The intention was to replicate the gameplay of [TF2] on the Doom engine while still keeping the original Doom look and feel.
Initially, when this mod was just an idea on my head, I was intending to make it as an “boot leg demake”, something like [Gang Garrison], but in an 8-bit 3D like in [8bit Killer], but I soon realized that this would mean that every texture and sprite in the game would have to be custom made from scratch, meaning that its development could take a long time. Having that in mind, I decided to start with something simpler: make an TF clone mod for Doom while still keeping some of the classic Doom feel, meaning that there would be already a richness of existing resources to base it upon, therefore cutting down its development time and maybe, just maybe, paving the way for a true TF2 mod later on.
This mod actually reached a quite playable state: all 9 character classes are fully implemented, and can be very fun to play if you can gather enough players. Eventually, though, I quit working on it, partially due to lack of time, but mostly because I felt that everything that would be challenging to implement on this mod, I had already implemented.
Anyway, here’s the mod as it is. It’s an alpha, but it’s fully playable.
