: oh, so this is on the aleph one engine? I have high hopes that this is better
: than Knee-Deep-Into-ZDooom

Personally, I think Redux is more the Marathon Counterpart to Brutal Doom Extermination Day, the latter of which remakes the first two games with better architecture than either vanilla Doom or even Aleph One following elements of the Doom Bible, though with Tei Tenga or Phobos and/or Deimos replaced with Mars. To stick within Bungie games, it could also be the Marathon version of Halo SPV3 which I did a Tour of Duty on last year (I did SPV3.2, the videos below are of the recent update). I plan to cover the differences in SPV3.1 & SPV3.3 at some point as a followup to that.

Beware of spoilers in the second video:

The main differences from Redux to the Halo & Doom mods are that it isn't compatible with the Brutal Marathon plugin (yet, at least), Redux predates said plugin and some things it was going to do haven't been implemented yet, like including the bomb we're meant to defuse, some maps are mostly unchanged apart from one or two things, some new architecture later is unfinished and I think the plan was to have different planks depending on whether you managed to save the bobs or not, though I don't know how the story would differ on the other planks.

That said, Redux is still awesome alpha or not and I look forward to what new builds may bring. I need to replay it on Total Carnage as my "Spoiler Guide" playthrough was Major Damage.
