It is almost 30 years since DOOM redefined gaming. On December 10th, 2023, the game’s designer John Romero is releasing a new episode. SIGIL II will feature nine standard levels and two deathmatch levels, and come in digital and physical editions.

SIGIL II will be available as for just $6.66 (what else) if you just want the digital only version. This gives you:

  • Full nine-level SIGIL II WAD + 2 Deathmatch levels
  • Custom music soundtrack by Thorr
  • Custom MIDI soundtrack by James Paddock
  • Readme.txt

Currently, only the USB physical edition can also be bought (the 3.5- and 5.25-inch floppies have sold out). This “shotgun shell” SIGIL II USB edition is signed and features:

  • Custom SIGIL II Big Box
  • SIGIL II cover poster (A3)
  • Romero Games full-size cinch bag
  • Sticker sheet with five stickers
  • Shotgun glitter sticker

    • Making of SIGIL II story by David L Craddock
    • SIGIL II original soundtrack by Thorr

    • Readme.txt

Both items are available to pre-order now direct from John Romero’s website. And you can watch him working on the game (and doing other stuff) on Romero’s Twitch channel.

Update: SIGIL II now available

You can now grab the download-only WAD files for SIGIL II from John Romero’s website for free.

The free SIGIL II Megawad doesn’t include the new soundtrack or other features, but is a compact 2MB downlaod that you can play in DOOM or GZDOOM.
