Doom's Got Some Really Sweet Ragdoll Physics. Wait, What?

One sec, gonna reinstall Doom.

Quote-unquote ragdoll physics are one of the new features of the upcoming v20 update for Brutal Doom. The mod, which is now in its fourth year of development, will also be getting an updated particle system and better, sharper-looking blood decals in the new version. Here's what the simulated ragdoll effects look like:

Creator SGtMarkIV hasn't set a release date for v20 just yet, so if you're interested, keep an eye on the mod's Facebook page for updates. The current version can be grabbed here.
