|This mod received one of the 2005 Cacowards on Doomworld in the What the Hell!? category!|
Happy Time Circus is a map by Rachel Schmitz (Negatronica), released in 2005. It received a special award at that year's Cacowards, under the category What the Hell!? as "the strangest level released this year".
shitbag credited the concept to his brother, who mentioned "a circus level that would scare little kids". The mod features numerous custom enemies, garish set design with strobing light effects, and an evil clown inspired by the film IT.
Other points of interest
- When you reach the rocket launcher platform, head right, then jump to the pole that has the box of shotgun shells. (sector 245)
- At the east end of the flashy area at the east end of the map, you can find a damaged wall in the middle. Open it to get a BFG9000 and energy cell packs. (sector 871)
- When you enter the flashy area at the east end of the map, make your way to the northeast part, then head southwest, so that you reach an area that is slightly out of the way and has a wall that does not have colored stripes, but looks damaged. Open this damaged wall to find a computer area map, backpacks, boxes of ammo, and boxes of shotgun shells. (sector 898)
- If the three missile-firing clown heads are killed in too rapid a succession, the escape route (script #20 in the SCRIPTS lump) might not open fully, preventing completion of the level.
