I was playing Tower Unite and I had just used the elevator to the condos when I started thinking back on Elevator: Source.
I’m thinking it would be great if instead of a teleport to the condos, you have to wait in there like an actual elevator. Also, elevator music would appeal to a lot of people because of Elevator: Source and in general, it’s a well received concept.
Some might say “Why extend the time it takes just for elevator music and a reference?”. The reason is because it adds to the whole experience. When you walk somewhere or use the monorail (when it comes out), you don’t teleport. It takes time, like it does in real life.
Not only that, but it gives an opportunity for a few laughs. I play with my friends and I know we’d joke around a lot if we all took an elevator together. It would get crazy. And I don’t mean making a minute long ride, maybe just 10-30 seconds. It’s a small addition and it would be a great one to a lot of players, in my opinion.
I’d like to know everyone’s opinion, if perhaps I’m just caught in nostalgia or if anyone agrees with me.
EDIT: Thanks to the feedback, I’m able to make a suggestion that would please everyone. One elevator would be dedicated to a long-ish ride with elevator music and perhaps even the strange floors. It could be differentiated by a crooked door and broken lights that fix themselves once you enter or something of the sorts. Perhaps even include some strange floors like in Elevator: Source. This way, it’s an option for everyone to discover and enjoy, while still being able to take the quick way up by using a different elevator.
