1. All sprites! Cherno did the Ogre, the others came from OSJC's Heretic mod with permission.
2. As of the time of this writing, there are two bosses implemented, one of which is new. I have plans for a few more new bosses as well. Also, how would you do a Quake boss? Cthon was a thing you killed with mechanisms in the terrain and Shub Niggurath was a static object to telefrag... Quake had no other boss monsters aside from those two.

You sure about that claim? :wink:

I haven't been super active on the forums as of late, but I wanted to pop in and add that I'm a minor member of the dev team and to definitely expect some exciting RETROTASTIC screenshots of a map I'm working on in the future.

Kudos for your awesome progress and such, team. The sequels gonna be super fun and yet fair, finally. But yeah, even more enemies and bosses to interact with would be nice.

Also, are there any new maps in Reelism 2?

Yes, every map is new! Even maps like Gutrot Island, which Kinsie is remaking from scratch.

About the closest thing to an "old map" in Reelism 2 so far is Flesh Palace, which is the same base geometry with a couple of tweaks and adjustments and a massive reskin to resemble Doom Eternal if you kinda-sorta squint a little bit.


Every other returning map so far has been completely rebuilt from the ground-up, since we know a lot more about building stuff for the engine now than we did back then and the tools have improved beyond what we could have imagined.

Totally neat to see something new about Flesh Palace. It having rather plenty of safe spaces and the tight size were not of a big hitter like what... Brr, Abridged did. Hope it can be more challenging and hazardous.

Also am i seeing the Eye of Sauron? :O

We haven't reimplemented jackpots yet. Since slots no longer have numbers assigned to them, the old way of getting them is no longer relevant. There's gonna be another way... but that's a story for another time.

The 9-9-9 jackpot effect will, of course, return.

are the bosses gonna be stronger? in reelism 1 most of the bosses kinda had this problem where they were basically just a stronger regular enemy, and also they were pretty cheesable

So exactly how much interface fuckery can we expect from this mod? Ouch_M set the standard pretty nicely.

I can't believe that Reelism's getting a refined sequel! I like the concept of totally redoing the game but keeping the same spirit. I think Grease is the Word should leave, or alternatively come with a slight boon (enhanced fire damage?)

I have some ideas for new Reels to add:

* A Reel full of Cacodemon variants (who whimper like dogs when burn)
* A Reel devoted to female enemies from FPS, like the Female Warriors from Shadow Warrior.
