Any Doom-related dreams?

Recommended Posts

The first time I ever had a Doom-related dream, I believe it was the other night;

 

I had made a big map (it was involved with a huge mod – maybe even a TC – but I forgot which it was), and it had quite a few cool gimmicks, like this area where there was a Cyberdemon (but it was an open area), and around it was a big fall, probably into water (similar to the Bluff Eversmoking in Unreal, but I don't think it was a moutain, or at least it was carved into a room). You had to grab some weapons to defeat the Cyberdemon, and use its then free platform to reach another part of the map.

 

Then I woke up... late for school. '-'

 

If only I remembered which gimmicks they were... I'd love to do them in actual GZDB! TTcTT

I recently had a dream as if on the Doomworld forum I received 4 warning points for my profile, and was worried about it.

Had a dream where I played a much more elaborate and creepy version of Deus Vult II's "You Shall Not Pass". If you played that map you remember that it involves escaping from a crowd of murderous Balrogs. Well that's what the map in my dream was about, except you had to flee down corridors while the Balrogs, a lot faster and more aggressive, were coming after you. At one point you ended up in a city and you had to flee to a hotel, elbow your way past the crowd of demons imitating a line of customers, and rush into an elevator before it closes. The elevator promptly takes you to Hell. The kicker is that alongside you, there's a regular guy and his little daughter in the elevator, just normal hotel guests who have nothing to do with all this, and once you get taken to Hell you're forced to leave them there in Hell's antechambers as you keep fleeing. You end up escaping through a hellish version of the hotel, including running down spiralling stairs across several floors and running down a long carpeted hallway. In the end I gave up and noclipped outside the map to get away from the Balrogs. At the end it is revealed what happened to the guy and his daughter: the girl was transformed into a twitching, mutant-headed monstrosity, and her dad was found dead and headless near her. I remember going on a TVTropes page for the mapset and seeing people complaining about how unnecessarily cruel that plot point was.

 

For a bit of trivia, in the city you had to fight a demonic Eric Cartman at one point, and at another point you needed to get through a dark Castlevania-themed building which recreated the platforming sequences from the original Castlevania.

I dream about Doom from time to time, but mostly what I encounter is a tendency to fall into strange spaces that have Doom motifs embedded within them, in the process of entering REM sleep. Frequently, I've experienced quasi-consciousness in that hypnagogic transitory state right before nodding off, and a lot of times they contain environments and entities that are fundamental to my personality. Interestingly, there is sometimes a highly organic or even sexual aspect to these environments, probably owing to two subjects that are on the mind a lot. The last few were very Doom 64-infused, with one of them containing a room with a massive fleshy creature that looked like a more ethereal version of the Quake 1 endboss.

I think this is going to be the weirdest thing I'll say:

A few months ago I dreamed that I played doom, but I rescue girls who the demons captured, and the girls had few clothes ..............

 

and when I woke up literally I said: Wtf?

 

I do not know about you but from that day every time I see a similar map I remember that dream

All my doom dreams always revolve around me and Im always thrown into slaughter maps, I always wake up with anxiety. I should get into map making because I faintly remember how these maps were designed

This recent dream though was different involved a beta level of tricks and traps where I think there was an extra door with pillars that had revenants teleporting to each pillar with some mancubus on each side. The revenants teleporting just gave me anxiety

Theres another one were there was black mechanical cacodemon with bull like horns, I still remember to this day, I should sketch hit out someday

I had one last night: I loaded up some wad, not sure what it was, but it had the Doom E1 Sky as the floor but with large square tiles evenly distributed. The sky had been extended with original features (smaller mountains, like small, steep hills had been added) and as I looked closer at the extended sky I realized I had made it awhile ago but had completely forgotten about it and was now rediscovering it in this wad I had loaded (but don't know what wad it was). I was quite blown away by how great the sky looked. The extended E1 sky was so seemlessly done, it looked better than the original and it lent the wad a most wondrous atmosphere and sense of place. The sky is actually burned pretty well into my mind's eye makes me think I should probably try to replicate it.

 

Probable sources of the dream: I've been playing old DM maps that I made back in the early 00s but never released and some of them play really well and I have no recollection of making them or playing them and they seem totally new to me (hah, kinda cool). The other source is probably the various vietnam/thailand and chinese foggy mountain image searches I did looking for images to make new e1 skies from. 

 

Otherwise most of my doom related dreams involve the terrifying stomp of the cyberdemon.

A few months ago, I had a dream that Dobu had made a map (I don't know why especially Dobu, maybe because he's streaming some mapping session).

 

This new map was amazing, but however low-detailled. It was a big city, using the doom2 textures stock, a bit like Hellbound, but the real goody here, It was the Olympic stadium, that Dobu made as large as "The Given" map. I haven't met monsters so far. But I was afraid because all was silent, and there is no music I think.

I had noticed on a corner a group of monsters (imps, revenants, chaingunners, shotgunners, hell knights, but especially a cyberdemon). At a some point, they turn slowly, in shifts, coming my direction. But there is a invisible wall in front of them, and they don’t see me. I remember that I activated a switch near of the group. And each monster spawned on the running track, It was funny because I saw that monsters ran with a fluid new animation in their legs. Imagine a imp running on a olympic race :P However, I was starting to worry, because more and more monsters spawned, and I had no weapon, It's like a countdown, I finally saw the cyberdemon running his race. I leave the stadium to find a shotgun or something, but I mostly wanted to run away.

I had a sound from a Terry trap wake me up last night. I've been watching too much Aquarius199.

Doom and Quake have informed my dreams since around puberty.  The darkness, claustrophobia, and disorientation that most maps had, in addition to the concept that any wall could potentially be a monster closet, had a profound impact on my growing mind.  I'm sure that if you put a microphone next to my ear as I sleep, you'll hear shotgun blasts and demons growling.  

I also had nightmares about the Predator

my favourite dream was when I was on top of a Cacodemon, flying over a destroyed city, burning down... while smiling

two bottles cough syrup (700mg dxm) but I'm big so probably only touching the third plateau and I've not engaged since

 

I had been playing a lot of doom that day, now lying in bed flittering between reality and somewhere otherworldly it was as if episode 1 had been imprinted on the room around me, flickering in a strange light, more like psx doom, sometimes  glimpsing furthur into the base where my walls should have been. I'm glad I didn't sense any monsters.

 

Before you think sweet, let's chug what mum has in the cubboard, this was a brief moment from grueling hours waiting for it to end lol

Had a dream about a Doom level which was just a linear series of rooms, but some time (a few minutes or so) after starting the level, a huge horde of monsters would be released near the start and begin slowly closing down on you, room by room (kind of like "You Shall Not Pass" from Deus Vult II).

I had a dream of an absolutely MASSIVE and insane looking map that seemed really awesome, but I know there's no way I have the skill right now to recreate it. Maybe in a couple years. It was a nightime scene, in a huge outdoor courtyard of a mansion, with a bunch of long, wooden dinner tables, as if it was for a party. Then there was an underground cavern with more tables with multiple entrances to it. Then, the map went outside into this magnificent floating island area with green walls and grass, and it was daytime in this area. It's hard to explain, but if I can ever recreate it, it would be awesome
