Doom II: Annie level design – secrets

During last stream, I have been working on the final area in the first map of Doom II: Annie – Episode 2. It’s actually a secret area that will require a both the red and yellow key to unlock. Those keys will be placed in different locations in the map so it will require some exploring but the reward will be well worth it.

The secret entrance

It was also the first time I actually tried my hands at the “brutalist” architecture. This actually came to be because when I started the stream, I really didn’t have any idea how to progress so one of my viewers sent me a cool reference picture and I just went with that.

There’s also room for Easter eggs of course. Zanieon, one of my viewers and also an excellent Doom mapper, wanted to implement some kind of Easter egg. Since he has been doing some texture work in this map, I’ll pass the map one last time to him so he can implement something neat. I’m looking forward to the result because to be honest, I have absolutely no idea what it is going to be.

If you would like to have a look at the creation of the secret area, you can watch the video below. It will be available for approximately 2 weeks. After this period, the video will be automatically removed.
