This free Doom 2 mod is the horror FPS you’ve been waiting for
Solace Dreams is a Doom 2 mod currently listed on ModDB. Regardless, this is not just a mod. Solace Dreams is a full, standalone experience that’s completely free.
The game is visually inspired by Silent Hill. You take control of a schoolgirl who awakens to find all of her classmates missing. They’ve all been sent to their own version of hell and now you have to go find them.
The game uses voxel graphics to achieve a pretty unique look. Everything looks like a sprite, morphed out into 3D. It’s a little disorienting, but that seems to be the point here. Here’s how the developer describes the game:
“Solace dreams stands out as one of the biggest mods ever released for doom. With all new textures, monsters and just about everything in the game stands out as original within the community. The primary focus of this mod is mood and scenery cramming as much detail into each level as possible, just about everything in the game is made entirely of voxels. Taking inspiration from games like silent hill and Dark souls players will face a large variety of bosses and monsters in many unique locations. ”
Yes, Dark Souls. This game is pretty difficult. If you want to check it out in action without download, check out the developer’s playthrough.
