Each map following a specific theme, all while aiming for a cohesive megawad split into 6 chapters and being constrained within a grid of max 3072 by 3072 units per map. That was the idea behind Theme-gawad and it did produce a cohesive while fairly varied set of maps. We have the latter 3 chapters left to play and sure enough, that's what we're going to do. See you there!

Theme-gawad is, as the name might suggest, a megawad in which the mappers strived to produce a coherent set of maps centered around a few specific themes, against the odds of such a feat in a community project with many authors. Did they succeed? Let's present the first half of the maps today so that you can judge for yourself!

More scythe series inspired goodness coming our way this week. Just like in Scythe and Scythe 2 the difficulty and slaughteriness ramps up in the last episode but nothing we couldn't handle. Importantly, as I'm sure you've hoped for, after their brief introduction in MAP31 you have far more encounters with the plasmad̶i̶c̶k̶s̶ friends to look forward to!

Machete is a megawad inspired by the Scythe series as well as Doom 2 itself. Now, you know something Scythe-inspired is going to be good and to add to that, the influence of the Scythe series can be felt not only in the map design and gameplay but also... well, perhaps that should remain a surprise until we reach the secret maps :)

Remember 2022? We've got a bit of unfinished business with it in the form of this one-person megawad created in the span of just one month. Similar to the last week, most of the maps in the second half of the wad are not particularly difficult so we can have a fairly chill start of this year of TNS. Also, whoever manages to find the exit area in MAP30 without looking in the editor gets a flying puppy from Salty!
