Back to Saturn X is a Vanilla-compatible multi-part ultra-wad™. The map set will consists of three separate episodes, each varying in theme and difficulty. The project is being spearheaded by esselfortium and has numerous, hand-picked contributors from all across the Doom community. The project uses an entirely brand-new texture set created almost entirely by esselfortium; it is not using any stock vanilla texture resources of any kind. There are Doom 64, Quake, Alien Vendetta, and Plutonia influences both in the new texture set and in the style of maps being created. In addition to new maps and new textures, there are also numerous new graphics and new music coming from many skilled members of the community.
Episode 3: Instructions to the Rusty Time Machine, is the third episode in the BtsX project. Is it the final episode? I don’t know man, don’t ask me…but maybe not . Anywho, E3 is yet to be released to the public in any form. I don’t have a date as to when it will release, but my sources have told me that it will release in eleventy-billion years from now.
So far I have contributed 2 maps to Episode 3 – Miles Under the Skin and a secret map entitled Gold Star for Robot Boy. The map slots are not finalized yet, that I know. But Gold Star for Robot Boy will almost certainly be one of the secret maps. I may get a chance to do a 3rd map and/or possibly co-author another map later on.
I’m not going to discuss my submissions as of yet. You’ll just have to wait until the project is released!
