Ok, here's the scoop on this in-development Doom 3 mod..
Based in the same Time frame as Doom 3, you play as the son of the space marine you play in Doom 3. You will in Long Beach, California with your mom. As a 18 year old, you have come to see your dad who works for the UAC to be sent on a mission to mars. Without your dad, things can get pretty basic and boring. One day, over the news, you hear of the discovery of the first archeological sight found on mars, and soon these artifacts will be sent to earth for further research. You think to yourself "I wonder what my dad is doing up there on mars?". As the next morning starts you get ready to go to the skate park to meet your friend jeff, until you hear over the radio of UAC recruiters explaining the possiblity of a draft. Whatever for, you continue to go straight to the skatepark. The invasion is immenent. How will you survive it?
