Madness & Thing-Thing Mar. 12th, 2013 @ 02:24 AM Reply

Just a thought. I've played ALL the Madness games. I've played ALL the Thing-Thing games. Why don't the creators or those 2 game series come together and work together? They are both awesome game series and I'm sure they'd make one HELL of a game! I want to know what other people think, see whether they agree with me or not... but either way I give both game series props

A Madness-theme game with Thing-Thing physics and weapon selection? That would be amazing! :D

It could actually turn out pretty good.

I always assumed Thing-Thing was somehow based on Madness, I guess I may have been wrong, would be nice to see your idea come true though, OP.

I played Thing-Thing a few times and it was alright.

Madness is still overrated though.

So I suppose it would be an interesting combination if they can make it work.

I never did play any of the Madness games. The Thing-Thing Arena games were the shit though, so much fun.

Cool idea op

I know right? They both have grand physics and weapon selection but to combine them would make for a terrific game

If that's what you think about the Madness/Thing-Thing idea, then that is your opinion and it'll be respected

There's really not much of a difference between the two games, so combining them together probably won't be too different from playing them individually.

Madness is so generic it makes COD seem original.

I remember liking both a really long time ago. Now I don't like either.

Madness project nexus was alright, but it didn't make me like the franchise any more.

Dont get me wrong they are stick figures lol which brings the excitement down a bit but looking beyond the game and seeing its potential is one of my specialties... the games themselves have flaws yes... BUT the concept of the game could inspire something bigger and greater.

Somebody said Thing-Thing was a bad name. True, it was a webcomic made by some kids before it was even a game series. It was tacky and childish, but by the time it had become popular it was a little too much too late so far as changing the title to the series. And it's become popular and well known under the name. Thing Thing was NOT based on madness. Madness isn't the first series with armless, legless characters lacking detail and it certainly wont be the last. The whole lack of detail and no legs and arms was just out of laziness. To start off with Krinkels was a poor animator and the characters with no arms are very easy to animate and draw compared to characters with limbs.

Finally, the Thing Thing series has ended indefinitely, no more games of about or relating to Thing Thing will ever be created. Weasel, the creator of Thing Thing, said this himself multiple times on his forum over at DiseasedProductions.net Though he still makes other games and such. I sincerely doubt you would need a team up to make such a game, because both teams contain that make Thing Thing and Madness official games have a person who does each job. Assuming they actually did team up, they could each do what they individually do best. But that's already happened during the creation of each game, people from both teams did what they did best for each.

I would love to see how it turned out, don't get me wrong. But the chances are slim and hypothetically assuming they did team up you would end up with a very strong team. But whatever they made, would probably not be too much better than project Nexus. It's really as good as games get. Maybe they could make something longer with more cut scenes and such and perhaps an awesome new storyline. But when it comes down to it, it'll be like a CoD to CoD2 conversion. I.E. Not much different.


If in doubt then set it on fire because fire is A if not THE answer and solution to absolutely everything.
