A disclaimer from the creator: I am a massive fan of Seinfeld. The characters were put into the replica as a bonus to add to the tribute. 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? 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. Thank you.
If you put aside the fact that the most iconic sitcom cast of all time is winding up on the business end of this 8-bit shotgun, this is brilliant. I never played “Doom” per se, but I wasted hours of my life in front of a direct ripoff of it, “Spear of Destiny,” in which the object was to kill Nazis who were guarding the spear that pierced Jesus’ side on the cross and had the power to make their army invincible. When you shot one of them, they’d yell out “Mein leiben!” as they died. This “Seinfeld” version is right on the money, right down to the perfect use of the signature catchphrases every time one of them is sent to the great coffee shop in the sky. Sure, it’s kind of dark and disturbing. But as a pop culture mashup? Genius.
