Gloom is a Quake II modification that blends fast paced action and strategy to create a unique gameplay expierience that will take many years to master. Featuring 16 classes, each with their own unique abilities and tactics, over 300 custom-made Gloom maps and rock solid servers, it's no wonder Gloom is one of the most popular Quake II mods still played today.
Aliens and Humans. Each side has it's own set of classes and it's own playing style. The aliens are mostly short ranged, melee attacks. Most are very quick and have enhanced jumping and movement abilities. The humans are the masters of technology, and have a wide array of weapons and explosives at their disposal. They specialize in long range attacks and are vulnerable up close against aliens.
The goal of each game is to exterminate the other team. To do this, you must eliminate all the opposing players and all of their spawn spots, so they cannot respawn. When a side is totally eliminated, the other team wins. For humans, they spawn from teleporters. Aliens spawn from eggs, which regrow after an alien emerges. Each side has one class which can build new spawns, create defenses and possibly repair friendly units. This class is the engineer for the humans and the Breeder for the aliens.
