Description The 2nd level following my recent release of "Claustrophia". This download includes that as well in the KDR.ZIP file if you would rather do that first rather than the original E1M1 map. This map is IMMENSELY larger than Claustrophobia and not nearly as dark.

The reason I call it Dilemma is that you will come to a place where you must choose between two keys - Red and Yellow. How the map plays out from there and even the place you find the exit are all determined by that choice. Hence the Dilemma. :-)

Personally, I recommend playing through it both ways. You won't be disappointed.

Additional Credits to : Blue Paladin (my old and trusted friend) and Fonze (aka Vinny) for playtesting.

As you can see, I took these screenshots using Risen3d. I highly recommend this port! The map will work with any port as far I know. It's been tested also with Zdoom and a couple of others.

DIlemma is my followup to Claustrophobia, which was my first map in like 10 years. The download above contains a file called KDR.WAD and another called Dilemma.wad. KDR has both Claustrophobia and Dilemma in it as I really set up Dilemma to start from where Claustrophobia leaves off. The gameplay may be less difficult if you start from Doom's E1M1 but the option to load it separately is there.


The REason I called it Dilemma is because you will be confronted with a choice when you get to the yellow and red keys. The gameplay and even the exit are completely different depending on your choice, so you may want to play it twice.


I hope you enjoy the map. It's designed for Ultraviolence but has easier difficulty settings set up. The aren't tested, however.
