PHANTASM BEYOND GAME - A Must See!

Phantasm Community user BLADEGHOST (game designer John Ivan) has recently completed an extensive multi-level mod for Doom 3 called PHANTASM BEYOND. By utilizing characters, situations and locations from the Phantasm films, Bladeghost has allowed players to enter into their favorite Phantasm scenes and battle all manner of undead enemy (including dwarves, spheres, finger bugs and the Tall Man himself!). As evidenced in the thirty-plus photos included in this post, Bladeghost has magnificently captured both the likeness and atmosphere of locales such as Perigord Mausoleum, the Pearson home and good old Morningside itself. He's also hidden a handful of surprises in the game, some of which are hiding in the photos below.

The mod can be downloaded for free by anyone and can be played on both PC's and MAC's so long as you have a copy of DOOM 3 with the most recent patch installed. It's all quite easy to setup, but if you need help, feel free to turn to this thread on the Phantasm Community forum for help. Continue reading to see more than thirty screen captures from the game and several video previews.
