Madness has arrived…

Total Chaos is a total conversion mod for Doom 2 that runs on the GZDoom source port. The mod is a survival horror set on a remote island known as Fort Oasis. The island was once run by a community of coal miners which one day suddenly disappeared, leaving behind the abandoned concrete jungle to waste away.

Something, clearly, has gone very wrong with this place. Upon your arrival at Fort Oasis, you receive a strange radio transmission. Someone wants to he found. Survive in 6 chapters, against over 8 horrifying fiends with a large assortment of weapons. The mod with the assistance of the source ports introduces many new graphical features, including 3D models and high resolution textures.

Something, clearly, has gone very wrong with this place. Upon your arrival at Fort Oasis, you receive a strange radio transmission. Someone wants to he found. The further you travel into the concrete jungle, the more the situation ends up unraveling, and where you were heading is no longer clear. Find letters scattered around the world and uncover the mystery of what happened.


Survive in 6 chapters

Explore the island of Fort Oasis in 6 chapters. In these chapters you will fight through apartments, utility tunnels, shopping centers, before reaching the city center and the mines that await you.

Fight against horrifying fiends

In every chapter, you will encounter new and even more horrifying creations. Each one processing their own unique attack patterns. Learning these is vital to surviving the oncoming onslaught.

Dispatch of them with a large assortment of weapons

Use anything you can find on the island to fight against the forces of evil. There are guns, but ammo for them is incredibly hard to come by. You will mostly be relying on tireirons, pickaxes, shivs and garden tools. Most of these can be crafted and some can be upgraded to wield more powerful blows.

  1. Hey – would u fancy bringing this to our Revival event. We just announced that John Romero is attending. I’m assuming your in the UK 😀

  2. Looks really cool 😀

    Why does this really need Doom 2 tho? Still needing some of the assets from it for some reason? Stand-alone games with that engine have long been possible without any issues (legal or otherwise), especially with the modified versions of the engine like the one you use (GZDoom).

    • The first couple of betas will require doom2.wad at this stage, however the final stand-alone version will run without it, all you’ll need is either Zandronum or GZDoom 🙂

  6. I really want to do something like this when I get good enough at messing with the doom engine.
    You’re a role model.

    Also a question that is really bugging me, how did you create 3D “things” with the doom engine?
    Like did you have to make a ton of frames for every angle?

    • Hey thanks for the feedback!

      The 3D things are actual 3D models rendered in the engine, so there was no need to render frames for every angle.

      This was a feature added in the GZDoom/Zandronum engines a few years back. You can download mods now that render the Doom monsters and weapons with this 😀

  7. Whoa this just looks sooooo AWESOME! Lol, when this mod is finished and it’s just a stand alone game, you should try to see if you can get it on Steam! I really think this can be really big. It looks very appealing to me and i think it needs to be more popular. This just looks crazy and I hope it works out for you guys! Also how do you guys animate/create characters in you’re mod? I’m a freshman at a high school but I’m getting into animation classes and getting kinda good with a program called Maya. Anyways, I’m gonna stay posted with this blog and see how it turns out. GOOD LUCK!

    • Hey James thanks for the feedback!

      The characters are sculpted and textured by the artist in ZBrush. We then import the mesh into Blender for texture baking, rigging and animation.

      Most of the lighting and shader effects have to be baked into the texture data (ambient occlusion, lighting, etc), since Doom doesn’t have a real lighting engine for models.

      Maya is a great program to get into, especially since its what everyone in the industry is using these days. It is personal preference that I use Blender. That and its free 😀

    • Should be pretty easy, all you need is Doom 2 and a source port like GZDoom, which can be downloaded for free. When the mods out all you need to do is download it and drag and drop it onto GZDoom to run it. No crazy setup required 🙂

  8. I don’t suppose you would let a humble YouTuber record and upload some beta footage in a Let’s Play? I love the Doom 2 engine, and this is really astounding.

  9. I can’t wait… Are you making progress? I *REALLY* hope this is going to come out soon. Could you offer an alpha/beta version before it actually comes out? I have seen some really impressive wads such as, Stronghold, Phocas Island 2, etc ,etc But never anything like this :O

  10. Hey man i have a little issue with the game. When i finish the chapter 1, crossing the exit door, (when the LOADING screens appears) the game crash. Plese answer me with a possible solution because the game is so awesome
