Sigil is a free megawad for the original 1993 DOOM® created by John Romero. It contains nine single-player and nine deathmatch levels. The free megawad was released on June, 1st, 2019 (the sixth month) and requires players own the original 1993 registered version of DOOM® in order to play.

Plot

Sigil takes place after E4M8 and Doom II. After killing the Spiderdemon, Doomguy's next stop is Earth. However, Baphomet glitched the final teleporter with his hidden sigil, which brings Doomguy to even darker shores of Hell. The Doomguy has to fight through this stygian pocket of evil to confront the ultimate harbingers of Satan, then finally return to become Earth's savior.

Baphomet was only doing Satan's bidding by brining you back to Hell. Somehow they didn't understand that you're the reason they faile din the first place.
After mopping up the place with your arsenal, you're ready to face the more advanced demons that were sent to Earth.
Lock and load. Rip and tear.
