Doom is everywhere right now – even on farming equipment – but the Doom game engine is also being kept alive in other ways, and that includes fan-made mods which create something entirely fresh and new.

One such example is Castlevania: Simon's Destiny, a non-profit GZDOOM-based game that attempts to reimagine the first NES Castlevania in first-person 3D. Needless to say, it's a title that Castlevania fans will definitely want to check out.

According to the developer Andrea Gori (AKA: Batandy), "all the levels from the classic NES era game have been reimagined like never before; experience the tale of Simon's fight against Dracula and his army of the night!"

The game launched a few years back but has been in continual development since, with buffs and rebalancing tweaks coming alongside exciting new features. You can download it here, and all you need is GZDOOM installed to run it.
