I'm having severe trouble writing this right now, because I'm sweating after laughing so hard. Why? Well, Doom of course! Its mods are plentiful; ranging from the sublime to... well... this mod that replaces every single element in OG Doom with Buzz Lightyear himself, the legendary Tim Allen.
And, man, when I say every single element, I bloody well mean it! The HUD, the weapons, the ammo, the stages, the demons, everything has been replaced with this here promo shot of Allen, himself.
But it doesn't end there. The sound... even the mod's sounds have been changed to, what else but, Allen's famous grunt. The music is varying pitches of the grunt, sounds of the weapons, sounds of the demons. Everything. This mod is a true devilish delight!
Check it out in action below:
And advance apologies, you won't be able to unsee what you witness below.

The DIY build you saw in the above vid will take a bit of work to throw together yourself if you fancy it, you sadist. According to the info in the mod's YouTube description, you'll have to:
- Get the Doom E2M1 map
- Install the GZDoom port
- Skip over here to get the grunt soundfile
- Get the Tim Allen texture pack
- Nab this here sound replacer WAD
- And wrap your head around this Texture library
But before jumping in and getting dirty with The Toolman, there's a catch:
To use the texture replacer library you simply have to set an environment variable SANNIE with the path to the texture (make sure it's a png, duh), then use LD_PRELOAD to preload the library. As simple as that, really.
Yeah, that last message totally went over my head. But I'm sure this mod will be well worth setting environment variable SANNIES for. Don't you think?
I mean, Reddit were as pleased as punch when they found the mod:
What do you think?
AEUHHH!!!!! Or just aeuhhh?
