A downloadable mod

-This mod was originally announced in 2019 and is still being developed-

Explore giant colorful worlds while completing quests to obtain Golden Souls! You can fully explore the maps at your own pace, and even experience completed missions again!

Doomguy's got a plethora of new abilities to overcome any kind of dangerous situation and travel through unusual lands:
He can climb ledges, wall jump and even long jump now!
With all these abilities combined, you can easily dash through levels like a pro!


Experience Golden Souls 3 with tons of different settings and difficulties!

Easy mode - 20% less enemy damage, Regenerating health, Falling into a pit makes you lose 10 coins.

Normal mode - Standard difficulty, Falling into a pit makes you lose 20 HP and 10 coins.

Hard mode - 20% more enemy damage, Legacy deathpits: Falling into a pit equals to instant death.

Yes, that's right, unless you play on Hard, there'll be no instant death pits!

Many checkpoints are scattered across the map, walking into a checkpoint flag will automatically save the game, and also act as a respawn point if you fall into a pit (Unless you are playing on Hard, where pits are instantly lethal)

You can also disable the autosave in the options of the mod.

This mod is NOT standalone, DOOM2.wad and Gzdoom are required to play!

Probably the game, hell, the software project I am most excited about. Good Luck and Have fun as they say!

This is exactly what DOOM 3 should have been. Shame on iD from 2004.

I absolutely adored Golden Souls 2, and while I'm really looking forward to this one, I don't want to spoil my full experience later on by playing the demo now.

But, you know, I wanted to give some words of encouragement. :P
