I see your point there, and I agree that as jokes, it may sometimes get overused.

However, when I re-read my own post, the main standing point in it were the intentionally non-horror stories, maybe even ones targeted towards children.

Just think, say someone makes a story where you fall into Ponyville. You run around in the cheerful environment, and tell them you're from the human world, and want to leave. The ponies decide to help, but before that you have to run a couple errands for them, or fix some things in the form of puzzles. All the while there are no monsters, just simple puzzle solving, and maybe a bit of backstory as to what has happened in Ponyville. After finishing all the errands, the ponies are able to construct a portal to send you home. Happily ever after.

It's a random, and cheerful adventure puzzle game, and anyone who didn't know better who just walked in on someone playing it would never ever guess that it was a mod made from the engine of the most terrifying game ever made. The game would acknowledge what it was, and not mix the lines, at least not too much.

Though not yet completely devoid of horror, an example I would say is the Small Horse series. It knows its not a full-out horror game, and it knows well not to treat itself as one. That's one of its biggest winning points.
