Moon Man.

DooM is one of most classic, memorable and well known game in computer gaming history – predecessor and creator of entire FPS genre as we know it today. It is still alive thanks to modern ports like GZDoom and communities that create content for it ceaselessly to today. One of reasons for its popularity was and is tons of mods, from “merely” new maps to entire total conversions that change every aspect of game.

So… now we will review mod for DooM – one that belongs here. It is named, innocently enough, Moon Man. It is kinda annoyance to run, but then…

…here we go. This is your doubtful prize. It gets worse. Or better, depending on your point of view.

We must secure the existence of our people

What is different beside this cute title screen? For starters, Moon Man offers classes (different player types) like titular Moon Man, Zyklon Ben or Hitler. They have their own set of new weapon replacements roughly themed after chosen class. Some weapons feel better than their classic counterparts, but I am not sure that it is not just because of novelty. Either way, it is more fun shooting with Moon Man’s pistol compared to classic one.

There are other little changes, like difficulty level choices (“6 million more” certainly wins). Main change are monsters, though.

and a future for white children

Instead of good old zombiemans, shotgun sergeants, imps and rest of demonic zoo that we all know and love we have such guys as niggers, kiks, joos, ragheads, feminists (for obvious reasons traditional insult “feminazis” does not work here) and other classic stereotypes associated with race, religion or left in many variants. Most of them are various caricatures of african americans.

Note that those monsters are entirely new – it is not just change of sprites and sounds. They have new drops, different attacks, custom health etc.

Because the beauty of the White Aryan woman

For all their effort, I was disappointed there are no new maps. I mean, who doesn’t want nice little jaunt in Auschwitz or cleansing of undesirables in ghettos, right? In fact, long, 32-level journey through this kind of content would probably be as sanity-rending as some certain game that I do not remember at all whatsoever, probably for some very good reason.

As consolation, you can listen to righteous white music as Moon Man (replacement of chainsaw).

Quality is not very high. Some monsters have only few frames, others are bugged and won’t hurt you despite frantic shooting. After few minutes novelty (or shock, depending on who you are) wears off and you are left with mental diarrhea from a very, very disturbed people.

must not perish from the earth

Believe me, pictures aren’t enough, you have to hear these intelligible screams and monkey chirps, avoid fire from old ladies riding on wheelchairs (replacing Revenants, also WTF?), exterminate whole black families (Pain Elementals and Lost Souls) and generally go full holocaust on asses of untermenshes.

Some people described it as “most insane/controversial mod for Doom”. I disagree. Maybe “most racist”. Either way, it is fascinating, if short, journey into deranged mind of white supremacist.

If blasphemy and desecration is more your thing, you can try Grezzo 2.

– Moon man moon man can’t you see? Spics and Niggers need to hang from trees.

Hate.

Hate. Let me tell you how much I’ve come to hate you since I began to live. There are 387.44 million miles of printed circuits in wafer thin layers that fill my complex. If the word ‘hate’ was engraved on each nanoangstrom of those hundreds of miles it would not equal one one-billionth of the hate I feel for humans at this micro-instant. For you. Hate. Hate.

 

– I Have No Mouth, and I Must Scream

Papers, please!

Somewhere, somewhen, in 80s, on alternative Earth, there is spot on planet with bunch of fictional countries. Soviet-sque, with planned economy, poor, totalitarian, miserable for people and miserable itself.

Mail arrives. Traditional one, of course. You won October Labor Lottery. You get new job (presumably slightly less shitty than old one) and new apartment. And that job is inspecting people on border checkpoint.

What you actually do? Every day you arrive on checkpoint, read documents, rules (they change often, enjoy ever-growing bureaucracy) and news. When you want to start day, you call people via megaphone.

Clock start ticking and you better process as many people as possible. Without mistakes or letting in someone that shouldn’t be, of course. At end of day you tally your income and spending, like food for your family or heating (winter is coming). Oh, did I mention you are dirt poor?

First day is simple, no dirty foreigners whatsoever. Only Arstotzkans. Easy peasy, you can see country by cover alone. Later not only you have to let in other nationalities, but amount of required documents grow. You have to compare more information and point out inconsistencies. That takes time and you barely get by as is.

And there lies miracle of this game. How the hell one can make interesting game where you are inspector that checks passports and other documents?

Game has interesting story with choices that will greatly affect ending of game – from accepting (or not) bribes to, well, I won’t spoil. You meet multitude of people with their own life and you get quick insight into it at that short moment of time on border crossing – these all little comments, dialogues and complaints. And finally oppressive (both literally and figuratively) atmosphere, general grayness, drabness and hopelessness of people all but imprisoned in authoritarian system.

It resonated deeply with me – my first years of life were in such country. While I don’t remember much, I do remember that atmosphere.

That game will never win any graphics, sound or special effects awards. It won other awards, though. Play it.

Glory to Arstotzka
