Mega Man Meets His Doom

An unofficial Mega Man Doom mod is in the works, and based off of the few available screenshots, it's going to be utterly awesome:



"Megaman 8-bit Deathmatch is a new multiplayer mod that aims to puts Doom and Megaman into a blender and spew out a fun new way to blast your buddies online."

"Megaman 8-bit Deathmatch will play as if Megaman suddenly turned 3D. Everything will play as if it was being played back in 1987. Levels will use purely 8-bit textures and sprites. Megaman will jump high and take damage recoil. Weapons will behave exactly as they did back then, only from a 3d perspective. The plan is to eventually have all the levels and weapons from Megaman 1-6 (and maybe 9). Obviously some weapons will have minor changes because there are a lot of clones throughout the series."
An alpha build of the mod was publicly released by creator Cutmanmike not too long ago, and is still available to download via the game's official website. It's in the early stages, so everything you see is likely subject to change. The final game won't be available till 2010.

  6. While it certainly isn't the Megaman FPS I'm hoping for, this is definately an awesome start.

  7. Looks really good, but the 8bit background graphics can likely get a bit confusing to navigate through.
