I don't want to sound discouraging from the start (: but you might want
to give some extra thought to decompression speed.  While LZMA compresses
well, it takes longer than gzip (deflate) to decompress, and speed is
pretty important for games.  Even if most of the decompression takes
place while switching maps, that's still time you're making the player
wait, and I've already seen complaints that Aquaria takes too long to
load data.

Just some food for thought. (:
