Doom Wiki
This mod received one of the 13th Annual Cacowards on Doomworld!

Phobia was first released as a single level PWAD by Kristian "Kristus" Käll for Doom Legacy in 2001 as a reaction to Marc "Fanatic" Pullen's music album "Limits". Phobia received wide acclaim from the community and was included in Doomworld's Top 100 WADs of All Time article.

Kristus later expanded the project and re-released it as a full episode with eight levels in 2006 as Phobia - The Age. The episode in turn won a Cacoward in 2006.

Detailed history[]

Phobia was initially supposed to have at least one single level sequel. Eventually Kristus canceled the project and moved on to work on levels for other games.

In the summer of 2004 Kristus released all the resources of Phobia for anyone to use. A few months later he started working on a sequel again. The original Phobia level was picked up for the project, but was cut in three parts and brushed off. As work progressed, Kristus also created completely new levels, the final version of Phobia - The Age having eight maps. These include two maps serving as an intro and an outro for the episode.

To help with the episode version, Kristus contacted his friends Marc Pullen to write the music and Mike "Manc" Lightner to record the voice acting needed for the project.
