    Has anyone thought to do this? It would be an excellent theme, since the art direction is so similar between its and TF2's. Anyone interested in perhaps working on one?

    The art direction is very dissimilar from TF2. Nightmare Before Christmas isn't just Halloween town, it's comprised of Christmas Town and the real world as well. All of which are very different from one another.

    I'm going to assume you meant using the Halloween Towns abstract, warped and twisted, horror art style. I've had this idea many times, but I can't really wrap my head around a fun game mode that would compliment it as I'd want it asymmetrical to fit as much awesome into the map as I could. Attack/Defend for example.

    It's a neat idea and I'm sure the assets needed to make it look nice would be fun to work on, but through it all I don't think it would end up being a very fun map to play on. That and blow ass at modeling.

    So in short, aesthetically pleasing? Yes. If we got a good modeler.
    Fun to play on? Most likely not. Unless you were really clever on how you placed everything.
