Mr. Hoppington's Shape Search: A Children's Doom mod

Recommended Posts

For my final project in my Intro to Digital Media class at San Jose State University, I'm trying to make a GZDoom Doom mod that basically changes Doom from an ultra-violent blood bath into a kid-friendly (age group is around age 6 and under) exploring game.

Here are some old screenshots:





I'm going to get a video of it later this week.

The objective of this mod is to collect three shapes: a red square, blue circle and yellow triangle. Once you collect them, you can press the middle switch to lower a platform, allowing you to collect the special prize to win the game.

The mod only has one level to it. I probably won't do much with this mod anymore. I'm going to use most of the textures for my Exterminator mod as a part of a texture pack for it. Anyways, go check it out here.

Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww, it's so CUTE!!!

You know this could make a hilarious and fully fledged kids game. There should be funny little animals running about and stuff :D

I can actually see the potential for a real puzzle-driven mod that even doomers could enjoy

EDIT: Mr hoppington is actually a bit scary, he should have pupils in my opinion

Although this project is due Friday, I suppose I can continue it after finals are over.

I only have two other levels thought up for it. One is a tropical island type level and the other is a snow level. I'd need to make some new textures and other resources for it, but I think it should be doable if I work on this over the summer.

You understand that when you release this, someone will probably turn this into an ultra violent bloodbath? ... someone like me ...

I know, haha. I figured someone would. I'm going to use most of the textures for my Exterminator mod as a separate texture pack.

You should make the entire beginning cute and soccer mom approved, then everything suddenly gets extemely gory and lewd toward the end. Leave stacks of copies with a FREE sign near local preschools with cute pictures on the cover and a rating of 'G'. Put a small, barely visible asterick next to the G and, in fine print on the bottom, mention that the G stands for 'Gory and sexually explicit' instead of the conventional rating system.

The shapes are the keys (most likely graphics replacements for the cards) that are used to activate the 3-key switch. The "special prize" for all I know could be a graphics replacement for the megasphere. That is all without playing it.

Why not put a Chex-Quest secret level in where you can interact with Chex-Man or something like that?

Oh yeah, with gggmork's idea the kids would be asking their mommies "Why is doomguy hurting that imp?"

Play through the whole thing in 2 minutes out of curiosity. The new textures(I loled at the colorful Panbook texture) and sprites are very...how should I put this...cheerful.

It looks cool. I don't think that those buttons would be intuitive to a little kid, though. You should make it look more like a cartoon button or a lever.
