Reverie is a new megawad designed to be completely compatible with vanilla Doom2.exe. It will feature 32 new levels in style of the 90's classics (Memento Mori 1 & 2, Requiem, Icarus: Alien Vanguard). It will hopefully avoid HOM, visplane overflows and savegame buffers, and will hopefully provide a good challenge, too.

Originally a 3-level WAD, I've decided to pursue a full 32 level episode after much inspiration followed. This was originally started in August 2010 when I decided to take a break from Doom Core. I enjoyed working on this and appreciate everyone for all the help in getting this completed!

Holy shit! I love seeing all these great projects crop up. Godspeed, Doomer. I'd offer to playtest but I've never playtested before and the idea of playtesting a megawad on top of my inexperience feels daunting.

Well, even the smallest of comments toward what needs fixing would be helpful. :)
Heheh, I think I know that pier you used in the titlepic. Somewhere in socal? Haven't gone by it for a while. The pics look nice and classic. I'm basically off school now, so I could playtest. Keep at it, you're getting pretty close to done.
Thank you guys for the support, I'd send the WAD for testing but I'm just busy fixing up some things. Recently, I seem to have come across a savegame buffer on MAP08, which is strange because it saved just fine earlier. I've been struggling to figure out what I did - I even deleted all the things on the map leaving just one player start just to see if it would still crash - and it did. Does anyone know of any other things that might cause a savegame buffer besides the things?
Just finished MAP27, just making some fixes here and there thanks to the playtesters. :) I'll round out a bit on MAP27 before I release it for the playtesters to play around with (screenshots found above).
To be honest with you, I've only played co-op once in my life. Not because I didn't enjoy it, I've just not really gotten around to playing Doom online (though it is a pretty cool experience). Maybe if the testers have some experience with co-op they could make suggestions as to what could be added/changed to help make the megawad more co-op friendly. So yeah, I have almost no experience in the category. :P

The most basic requirement is to make sure that players can reopen areas they already went through, otherwise they may die and not be able to progress anymore when they respawn. For example, if bars lower or a floor rises from a first area to a second one, make sure they can be raised or lowered again from the first area.

Yeah, I kinda figured stuff like that; like the opening puzzle in MAP04 can be navigated a second time when taken back to the start. Actually, I try to make each level have a means for navigation. On MAP06 once you've made your way to the end there's a portal that opens up giving access to several past areas for quicker and easier navigation. But yeah, thanks for the advice. :)
