One thing that I remember well from this game was that when God mode was activated (either from a pickup or by cheating) the character was floating above ground, was invincible, could throw balls of holy light with effect comparable to BFG and, funnily, was yawning all the time from boredom.
Some enemies would pretend to give up and then try to shoot you in the back, there were jumping platforms… this game was epic.
Yes! This game has a lot of stuff like that. Some say it has “personality” 🙂
I believe the yawning in god mode was because of something John Romero did while playing deathmatch, or testing god mode on Doom or something (Romero wasn’t involved in Rise of the Triad but Tom Hall who is very close to Romero was).
Oh I love this game. it’s full of whacky stuff.
I remember in online play you could send eachother taunting messages: “where are you?” … ” over here!”
I read somewhere that the yawning was something John Romero used to do not when playing deathmatch or testing god mode, but when testing the no clipping mode in doom.
Making a ‘woooo I am a ghost!’ sort of sound when walking through walls. 🙂
