Serenity is a full replacement of DOOM I's third episode. This WAD contains new graphics and new music.

The set of 8 levels have been made with the word quality in mind. It's Mind here, not Muscles! Many days and weeks have gone into testing, designing and fine-tuning. Although this isn't a hack&kill kind of level, you will get your share of bloody action (especially when playing on "Ultraviolent").
Some of the levels may be a breeze, others may be a real pain in the *ss. But one thing can be said for all levels: YOU DON'T HAVE TO USE THE CHEATS!! There are a few very though places, but they can be done. When it seems you can't get around them without using the cheats, you may be doing it the wrong way and/or you may have missed one or more (valuable!) hidden rooms (which contain power-ups, weapons and/or ammo). Hidden rooms which, by the way, can ALWAYS be recognized in some way (different texture, different light-level, etc.).

Let's see what players have mailed us after they had undergone the Serenity experience:

"I don't post here [on the Doom newsgroups] often, mainly just come to read what is new. But I just had to let those know who have not tried it yet that SERENITY.WAD is the best I have seen. Great for single player doom. The wad is very well done. Check it out."
"I have just finished playing the best .wad I have seen yet... serenity.wad.
If you don't have it yet, go to
[http://www.hermans.org/doom/index.html] and get it. It replaces the entire 3rd episode (with the exception of E3M9) and includes a couple new graphics and new music. Well thought out and well built, this wad has quality equal to of surpassing many of the original DOOM wads."
"..ITS THE MONA LISA OF HOME-MADE WADS.

"One of, if not the, best single player WADs I've seen. Too many WADs seem to be designed for DOOM-Gods-Only, but this one seems to be running at tough-but-doable all the way through. I'd put this right up there with Alien Doom as a top-of-the-line player WAD.
IT'S A KICK!
"
"Thanks for the brilliant Serenity. Definitely the best wad we've seen. Better than the original doom wad."
"I had to stop and oogle at the stained glass windows for a while."
"I think they are the best Doom wad files yet. I haven't finished all the levels, but the part I like most about Serenity is the cathedral stained glass, which look even better than those in Heretic!"
"I Recently purchased registered Doom (Ultimate Doom by the way) and I decided to try Serenity and Eternity, because I heard so much good things about them. I'd just like to tell you that they are awesome, especially the movie theatre level."
"Truly a tour de force of design, artistry, and programming. It's been a privilege to enjoy this experience. It's a pity that computer art is not recognized to be as great as painting or the other so called fine arts. Surely you would be considered masters."
"Serenity kicks major ass!!! That is the best wad I have ever played.
I espesially like the 8th level. Awsome windows and the whole level is awsome. PLEASE make some more of those. They kick ass.
Did I mention they kick ass???
Well they do.
"

So, if you haven't downloaded SERENITY, then do it today! (you won't regret it... 8^)
