THE MONASTERY OF DARKNESS - 20th anniversary edition

Now it's almost 20 years ago since I bought the full version of Duke Nukem v1.3d. Soon after I thought it would be nice to build something with the editor, say a monastery with church and all... but soon I realized the restrictions of 2.5D and started to concentrate on gameplay. I never actually finished the "Monastery of Darkness" back then. Yet it worked as a complete map and I finally released it as it was in 1999. A few months ago I stumbled over it and checked it with Mapster32. I couldn't get my hands off and ended with a polish that hardly left a single linedef untouched. I tried to preserve the original atmosphere and gameplay though. Now the map has a building history over a span of nearly twenty years. Some people seemed to like the old version so I decided to release this update as well. Hope you have fun with it.

(*) Please read the compatibility notes in the accompanying text file.
(*) The gameplay is non-linear and there is a lot to discover in the map outside of what is necessary to finish it. There are three secrets, all of them are moody places with more aliens and items you won't find anywhere else. The probably most hard to find secret's got a brandnew huge extension which leads to a hidden flying saucer you can enter. There are several hints to where it can be found so watch out for signs and sounds. If you still can't find it check YouTube for a walkthrough filmed with the old version.

Cheers

Thanks for pointing me on it and thanks for the kind words written about the map. I might come up with something new in... ten years or so. ;)

I never tested the 20th anniversary edition in coop myself but someone posted a utoob vid of it which made me change one or two little things mainly about locked doors. This makes a difference only in multiplayer, single player is the same as before. The update is uploaded to Steam and here:
