Can't escape the original Doom, even as an April Fools joke. Got to be honest, I wish game demos are just a couple MBs...or whole games really :)

Knight Cloud, it was just a joke.

Personally, I can't believe anyone fell for this. First clue was the 'LvL exclusive'. No insults intended but come on! LvL getting it first? I don't think it would work that way. The second clue was the 2.71 MB file size. You can rarely find a test or demo smaller than 40 MB nowadays.

Kudos to Tigger-On and LvL for pulling a successful prank!

well, i actually didn't know that it was april f00ls, i live in spain, and our f00ls day is on Dec 28, so i spend 5 minutes downloading "doom 3"

I was installing doom, and i refused to believe it wasn't doom3, good one tigger :)

after a good laugh I settled into a state of amazement over how strongly the original mood came back. even with such blocky graphics and limited movements it was a creepy game. the music, even though it sounds like empty elevator muzak, works! makes me wonder about the possibility of overkill with the new graphics engine.

This has got to be the greatest game yet. And it can play as a Q3 level or stand alone. When not being used as a game, it also slices and dices vegetables. This is definately the wave of the future. I really like the high-tech Pong interface. Download this now!!!!!!!

Funny, yeah I am, really....

That was about the cruelest dam thing I have ever seen. Being that I had totally forgot that it was April 1st, I d/l it with dreams of sugar plums dancing in my head....gee, what a bummer. Anyway, good joke, just was really anxious to check it out.

Hook...Line...Sinker. Thank God I checked this comment section before the d/l finished.

I think after last year's you'd only get new people faling for it but wth who cares? Hehe. Maybe, you could do it the day AFTER April 1st so everyone might actually fall for it.........of course, as soon as I saw my mailout I was like......."Yeah right, I wish" but I still came here half hoping! ;)

nunuk...did you just wake up or were you not here last year? Love your maps btw, of course I do, nice to see them in a sort of "official" pack. Brings honor to the space map genre. Ok, before I get edited for length I'd better post this.

I'm a little disappointed compared to last year's, though. That jump pad level was actually pretty cool...
