Mourn is a single-level Boom-compatible wad that was born as an attempt to make my first serious large-scale slaughtermap. Making use of the ever-impressive OTEX, the map takes place in a vocalnic mountain area with a handful of abstract tech structures built in parts of it.

While slaughter gameplay was largely the plan for Mourn, it's still far from constant enemy spam. The combat encounters offer small amounts of variety, and some also provide some extra spice by way of gameplay gimmicks. Designing the fights for Mourn was a lot of fun and a learning experience in more ways than one. The adventure is accompanied by a 10-minute prog-inspired MIDI epic, composed by none other than myself.
