I had a weird dream not that long ago where I was playing some kind of bizarre precursor of Doom. Somehow I knew that it had come out before Doom itself, but it was a complete game not an alpha. Picking up the chaingun gave very fast firing dual pistols (even though it had the normal chaingun sprite on the ground). Despite being out before Doom or Doom 2 it had chaingunners, and they had the exact same sprite as they did in Strain (Doomguy helmet and gray uniform).

There was some weird system with various types of first aid that you could look at them on the ground and see their names, which were kind of like medication names you see advertised on tv. Even the berserk was like this. There was an inventory to store them too. I think maybe you were supposed to make the right combinations with some of the healing items in order to use them, and I'm pretty sure you were supposed to figure out the combinations based on their medical names.

Maybe weirdest of all, there was some kind of obsession with triangular shapes in the map. It was like id became overzealous with "Look! Angles!" after being confined to squares in Wolfenstein, to the point of the level feeling amateurish because there were triangles everywhere.

Anyway, after picking up the dual pistol "machine gun" I shot a bunch of Strain chaingunners, walked over a berserk I decided to stick in my inventory for later, and eventually caught sight of a flamethrower marine way up on a cliff (looked the same as the Strain chaingunners, except with a brown-orange uniform). I remember thinking that they probably put him up there so people could see how he attacks before facing one directly, but that it was so stupid putting one there anyway because there was no way he would ever damage anyone up there.

This was all pretty funny when I woke up.

I just had the best doom dream i've ever seen. Before it was always something scary, hiding from hellknights in doomish-looking places etc, but this one was related to mapping.

So, apparently i was participating in a group project where we'd do levels part by part - as in, i got the wad in progress with a level done up to a point and i was supposed to continue/finish it. It was a brown brick-textured catacomb level or something to that effect, maybe partly some type of cathedral.

Anyways, i run it, and quickly find out that last night i added an area to it without remembering doing that at all (even though i never drink i justified this with something booze-related). But the best part is what the area looked like. It was a room, textured with those same brown bricks, but it looked like an office complex, a biggish room with cubicles and stuff. Of course, the thin borders between cubicles were also made of brick. There were tables with very cool-looking computers (that stood out among the bricks horrendously), but also, last but not least, i apparently coded certain decorative sprites... They looked like sideways mushrooms, being very... penile in shape (apparently as a joke), and they were moving left and right, like bobbing hexen items but horizontally. So it was a brick-textured office complex with modern computers and giant mushroom dicks sliding from under the tables back and forth.

Apparently i concluded that this was entirely acceptable for the project and rushed onto the forums to share how cool a room i made without remembering it.
I don't even want to know how this could be interpreted.

Doom just generally impacted me a lot as a kid, it was very scary and difficult (partly due to me playing the snes port originally, which was harder in some ways). So i remember having a lot of "nightmares" ranging from just playing a hellish level with enemies around every corner and barely any health/ammo (and of course like it often is in dreams, it was really me in the game, feeling pain etc), to hiding from doom3-like monsters in a doom3-like environment, ducking under tables and windows and such. When actual doom 3 came out it hit way too close to some of those dreams, too :I

Posted another dream about an abused title.

@Antroid: That dream seems interesting. What brick texture was it? Also, those mushrooms sound pretty odd. sideways-bobbing? Someone needs to make something that does that!

@Obsidian: The fake 3D mid-texture bridges or 3D floors?

@joe_ilya: Sounds gross, but reminds me of how in ZDoom, you can "puke" scripts, but I know you mean literal puking on enemies.

The other dream, more recent, had me kill several archviles with a BFG, only to see their dead bodies being somehow blown close to me: I knelt over to touch one of them: it looked like a mummy covered in dirty, yellowish pus-encrusted bandages, and to the touch their skulls and body felt just like a human body, but with a squishy feeling and crushed bones. It almost made me feel sorry for them.

Odd. I never even thought of Arch-viles that way, but now I can imagine how Arch-viles, despite their small sprites, might've been intended to look like that!

I've had plenty of Doom dreams, but mostly they only inspire architectural concepts that are straightforward and standard for my fair. The big metallic overhang in UR Map04 is an example this. Sort of came to me when I was falling asleep and was still fresh on my mind when I woke up.

For the most part, though, the dreams are great but would make for awful gameplay as a layout, heh.

Agreed, sorta. Look at that one ZDoom dream I posted and you'd see that right away. Ideas you get while awake are a bit better off. It's annoying when you know you can remake something from your dream you had but it'd take a long time, so, if it's a Doom level, you'd probably forget it beore you get all the way though it.

@Xane123
I think it was some strange lighter version of BIGBRIK1. Something like a cross between that and BRICK6-9.
And yeah, those mushrooms were sliding back and forth along the floor. Maybe as a crude suggestive joke considering their shape. My subconscious has the sense of humor of a 11yo apparently. I dunno how possible it would be to make such a thing though. I would try but it seems like an incredible waste of time. :D

I've posted two in other thread and forgot completely about it.

Scypek2 said:

One evening, I was in some weird, half-dream state. Before I could think about anything, I had to give every thoughtdef "D1 start thinking" action. Strange.
Next time, at the morning, I was half-dreaming again. I heard awfully loud barking of my dog, so... I opened XWE in my mind and starded searching for barking texture(!) to replace it with something more quiet. And now I know how barking looks like!

When I was younger I frequently saw dreams where I was playing fps, often Doom. The catch was that when the dream was ending the controller or keyboard depending what platform I was using turner slowly into a pillow. When the transformation was still in progress controlling the game went from easy to hellish. woke up holding pillow with both hands and pressing its corners as if they were firing buttons or something like that.

Last night my radio came on playing 'Walk Like an Egyptian' and I immediately began dreaming about myself, walking like an Egyptian, leading some female pharoh through these odd boxy rooms in Doom. I'd do my dance and come to a wall which would glow a bright rectangle, which would turn into a door, which we would walk through. So when I woke up I realized I had to post about it in this thread. :)

That sounds pretty odd but unique. My normal dreams tend to ade out or I start to feel less in contact with the world. (Like the ZDoom dream I like SO much, where it faded out)

I said last night:

Which is hilarious because I dreamed of being the Doomguy in some sort of Doom 3: Hell on Earth (probably Doom 4) after that

Dreamt once about a Doom level with slopes of riverwater under a very pretty terrace area somehow built up. I remember putting some prefabs of columns gratey at the top of them in. Yeah, that was impressive since I've only obtained Doom Builder weeks before (that time I was willing to get my checked spiralbook sketches realised as true maps).

Hehe, I still remember the instances of Scypek2 there which made me laugh out loud and my parents look at me like I was completely idiot.

Never had one, surprisingly because around 2010 I played a lot of Doom. All my dreams are real life related, heh.

One dream I had was that there were slot machines in Doom E1M1. I pulled the lever, and it came out with 3 black Xs. And because of that, a Cyberdemon teleported into the room. Not exactly an ideal situation.

And as a kid, I was outright terrified of the Cyberdemon from Doom 64. The thumping absolutely scared the crap out of me and I would not fight it unless I was invincible. Well, a Doom 64 Cyberdemon was walking around in my house. I was inside my parent's room hiding under their blankets. I could hear the thumping of the Cyberdemon get louder and louder, and then I quickly realized it was in my parent's room. The Cyberdemon decided to fire at that lump under the blankets. You know what happens next.

Kaboom.

Ihaven't recently. Should I open a thread in Everything Else asking or non-Doom dreams so that way, I can tell people here about what dreams I can remember that aren't Doom-related? I hope I hve another Doom-related dream, though. I seriously cannot forget that awesome ZDoom dream!

EDIT: New dream added about an interesting encounter with my own Doom level!
