Technical information[edit]

Inspiration and development[edit]

The entire map is a parody/tribute to Garth Marenghi's Darkplace, a 2004 British TV comedy that lampoons low-budget 1980s TV drama, horror, sci-fi, and egotistical "visionary" authors. Many of the plot-points are based directly on the first three episodes of Darkplace, and several of the music tracks are MIDI covers of portions of Andrew Hewitt's score for the series.
