A downloadable mod

A cozy Doom mod that radically repurposes any Doom level into an Animal Crossing-like nonviolent social space where each monster has a name and something to say. You play Mr. Friendly, a Guardian Demon tasked with helping improve the lives of Hell's minions as they recover from the latest space marine rampage. Level exits work normally; the point is to chill out, do quests, interact with stuff, and explore.

Requires GZDoom 3.3 or later. Works with any Doom IWAD (Ultimate Doom, Doom 2, Final Doom) and a majority of user-created vanilla Doom levels.

This mod is mostly finished but there's still a few odd things to do before calling it done, such as proper title screen art, hence why this is labeled a beta build. There are plenty of ways I could expand it in the future though - see the project's Trello progress log here.

Controls:

  • Spacebar: Talk to monsters + interact with normal Doom stuff like switches and doors
  • 1: Equip the grabber, allowing you to pick up and hold objects from the world. Also comes with a "zapper" that can trigger the rare shootable switch.
  • 2: Equip the texture sampler, which can grab the texture from any surface you point it at.
  • 3: Equip the fishing rod, which you can use to fish in any pool of liquid.
  • 4: Equip Guardian Vision, aka "golden eyes", which allows you to see certain otherwise undetectable objects.
  • 5: Equip the Warp Gem, which teleports you back to your starting point in a level.
  • 6: Equip the Whispering Tome, which helps you locate secret areas.
  • Left mouse button: Use the currently selected tool. With the grabber equipped, clicking or holding it again drops or throws the currently held item.
  • Right mouse button: When the grabber is equipped, stash the currently held item. (Note: in the alpha build you may have to bind this, as "alt-fire")
  • Q: Bring up the quest screen, showing all quests you've discovered on this level.
  • E: Bring up the inventory/crafting screen, showing all the objects you've stashed, and allowing you to craft special items out of ordinary ones.
  • F: Toggle flight off and on, in case you'd rather walk. Might help motion sickness-sensitive players.
  • Tab: Bring up the map screen.
