Thinking about that Doom mod where you help people and do things to make them happy, again.
To clarify: this doesn't exist yet, it's an idea I've had simmering for a long time now. You're a Guardian Demon and your job is to find unhappy / hurting monsters in each level and help them by doing little quests. Everyone has a name and an identity.
Interesting experience target is emerging with this: a chill activity that leaves you with a good feeling after a hard day of work, bruising current events, etc. Something gentle and kind in a Hell that is off the clock and no longer cares to be threatening.
Most games help you unplug but leaving people with a better feeling than when they sat down is a challenge.
all of which is to say, lest I molyneux, "craft smoothies for monsters".
Been doing a bunch of writing for this lately, once that's all in the whole thing will be alpha-ish and I'll start sharing it more widely. Happy that this idea is finally real, I think some folks will enjoy it.
@jplebreton this genuinely sounds extremely my thing, I'll probably give it a whirl later today!
