Another thing they have in common was the fact that both were nominated for 'Best Fan Creation' at the 2016 Game Awards, but those nominations - selected after a fan vote - have been revoked. The category now only shows two titles: Brutal Doom 64 and Enderal: The Shards of Order.
The reason for the removal of the nominations has not been confirmed, but given that Nintendo is involved in the awards in a advisory role, it's easy to speculate.
We'll update this story if any official statement is forthcoming.
Thanks to everyone who sent this in.
