At its peak Seinfeld was a television phenomenon, with the final episode of the show attracting an audience of around 76 million viewers.
Almost 20 years on from that last ever episode and the show’s influence in pop culture is still clear to see, though that probably still fails to explain the actions of one Doug Keener.
Evidently a massive fan of Jerry, Elaine, Kramer, George and even Newman, Doug has done the obvious thing: he’s recreated Jerry’s apartment on the popular 3D shooter Doom 2.
No, loaded has no idea either.
The result of well over 100 hours of work, this is a fully-working version of the game, except set inside the Seinfeld apartment.
All of the familiar faces are present and correct and complete with their very own audio clips and, er…death…animations…
Not to worry though, because Doug has an explanation as to why you are able to shoot all of the characters dead in the new Doom/Seinfeld crossover.
“The only reason they are killable is because I wanted to keep it in traditional Doom fashion, because what is doom without violence and death?” he asks.
“This is in no way a ‘hate video’ towards Seinfeld or the cast. It is a tribute and an homage to one of the greatest television shows of all-time, as well as one of the greatest video games of all-time.”
Available to download via YouTube, the concept may be a little nutty but you can’t argue with the execution and, given the amount of work done by Doug, it would be rude not to at least download it and give it a try.
What’s next? Quake fused with Tim Allen’s Home Improvement? You could keep the nail guns in the game…
