Requiem was an add-on (“megawad”) released in 1997 for the immensly popular first person shooter game Doom2 by id Software. It contained 32 new levels, uploaded to the idgames archive on July 4, 1997. Several of its designers previously worked on Memento Mori and Memento Mori II. It is famous for popularizing architectural tricks that are used even today, including the faked 3D bridges originally introduced by Dystopia 3. It is also one of the few PWADs that are allowed to be used in Compet-n speed-runs.
The custom soundtrack was composed by Mark Klem, David “Tolwyn” Shaw, and Jeremy Doyle. Now, just over 20 years later, the same musicians want to bring you a fresh take on that soundtrack and we hope you enjoy it.
