Monkeys of Doom, Quake 3 Arena toon-shaded mod
This is a game which has been around for a while but I've never had the chance to mention it in the blog. Monkeys Of Doom is a mod created using the Quake 3 Arena source code. Unlike many of the other mods around for Quake (or indeed other first-person-shooters), this is rendered entirely in a toon-shaded format.
In many ways this is reminiscent of Ubisoft's XIII (anybody remembers that one?), only this one is perhaps even more extreme in stylization. The excellent website of Monkeys Of Doom (found here), features a background in the development of the project using the id Tech 3 engine, concept art development and an assortment of mod packs and levels created with the unique cartoon rendering style. There's even a shop to purchase your Monkeys Of Doom T-shirts from!
However the most interesting part is the fact that the game has been ported on a Nokia N95 (including accelerometer use for interaction). I wonder how long it will take for an iPhone version to appear?
