Death Wish Released!

It has arrived at last!

Caleb will need to muster all his strength to take down the mighty Tchernobog,
who has managed to free himself from the grip of death.

ModDB Page

  1. Over 30 levels spread out across 3 episodes, which includes secret levels and transition levels for flowing smoothly back into the main campaign.
  2. 6 new cut scenes, appearing at the beginning and end of each episode explaining the story and its developments throughout the course of the game.
  3. New story, taking place after the events of the original Blood and its add-ons while staying within the same mythology.
  4. The Tome message system, giving the player hints and story tidbits during play to further deepen the story and reveal hints or secrets.
  5. All the levels have been adapted to be playable in Co-Op mode, so you and up to 7 other friends can tackle Death Wish together.
  6. All levels include modified enemy and item placement depending on difficulty settings for added replay value. Even long-time Blood pros will find a challenge in Death Wish's brutal Extra Crispy setting.
  7. A very detailed plain-text Walkthrough is included. It is split into 2 sections: One with the basic player path discussed and the other revealing all available secrets.
  8. A Commentary text file is included, revealing the creator and lead QA tester's thoughts on Death Wish and its content.
  9. A detailed README file is included, ensuring that everyone can get things working properly even on varying file system configurations.
  10. Simple drag-and-drop installation — no confusing or malfunctioning installers.

Released Tomorrow!

Excited yet? The countdown is on!

Today I'll be creating the final piece of Death Wish, the README file, which will go over installation as simply as possible. Well, there's almost nothing to it:

  1. Drop everything into the Blood directory
  2. Follow README instructions to make sure cut scenes will play

All files have the prefix "dw" making them easy to locate in your Blood folder.

Challeges Set

All maps have been updated for varying difficulty levels. The majority of variation occurs between the Medium (Pink on the Inside), Hard (Well Done), and Very Hard (Extra Crispy) settings.

It is noted in the Walkthrough that the guide was built for Medium difficulty, and variations occur in enemy and item placement when not playing on that particular difficulty setting.

Now to tie up some loose ends as the release date draws near!
