(so Hehxen would have to be an infinite ammo slaughter megawad with some new monsters in...would probably work if there was some new weapons and textures too)

Nothing good can come of this IMO. Even with leileilol's sterling advice.

Do you remember the Nazi-Werewolf dream sequence from "An American Werewolf In London".

Something akin to that style of Dreams-Within-Dreams might be humorous.

The peer pressure to add in the unfunny, or some unfunny loving guy would come in and spoil the broth.

I made something like this, but it would only move toward you when there was level geometry blocking your line of sight with it. I wanted to have it move around whenever it wasn't in your field of view.

Shrink player down till the key is as big as him, then have him lug it around :lol:

Or... you're shrunk down till the key IS the level. The grooves on the surface of the key become towering walls, those three yellow dots become demon-spitting towers...

Okay now that is just really, really hilariously creepy.


EDIT to avoid spamming up the thread: BoF was the first map I tried the barrels with this on.

I don't want to sound too cynical here, but I don't think jokewads are worth anyone's time to make anymore. It seems that even the concept of jokewads itself has been played out. I think it's better to focus on high quality projects that contain humorous gameplay/setting, trying to squeeze humor out of the specific lack of quality is pretty much anti-funniness.

I don't think that's what the point of this is at all.

From what I can tell, this is more about making jokes that don't suck than bad quality levels. Sorry about that. It's just that for me all that comes to mind when I think of jokewads is stuff like Mock 2 and I can never get that image out of my head.

Yeeeaaah that's specifically what I'm trying to avoid.

A Jokewad that actually tries to be funny, or hell just plain tries. Jokewads aren't a bad concept, it's just that nobody bothers to actually try to make a good one.
