Intentional Hall of Mirrors

Recommended Posts

Ah, the Hall of Mirrors effect. That strange visual artifact. The vast majority of the time, if it is present, it's a mistake. But I was wondering, how many WADs have intentional HOM in them. I know that some use it to create the illusion of "deep water" (I know that at least The Plutonia Experiment uses this technique), but what are other examples.

 

NOTE: Yes, I know of Wow's infamous "illusion pit". You think I don't know this site's Top 10 Most Infamous WADs list?

I read the title as "International Hall of Mirrors", and now I'm disappointed.

Has anyone used the HOM effect on purpose to make an actual "hall of mirrors" like at fairs/carnivals?

Seen it a few times in Maximum Doom, usually in the 'bathrooms' of 'house' levels.  Most recently saw it in map 2 of REOLWOLF.WAD, where there are four 'prison cells' with this effect in it.

I was thinking exactly about that. REoLWOLF.wad was the first pwad I ever played, loved the puzzles and it got me into map designing. Some of my maps in twzone.wad were inspired by it.
