    Default The Oddest Non-FPS Title Powered By ioquake3

    Phoronix: The Oddest Non-FPS Title Powered By ioquake3

    When it comes to ioquake3, the open-source id Tech 3 game engine, it's almost always being used for powering a first-person shooter. However, released on Friday was a major update to an open-source multi-platform game running on ioquake3 but is not yet-another-FPS title. However, it's also arguably the oddest game to be powered by this engine that was originally designed for Quake III...

    Unhappy Disgrace

    The quality of the graphics in the attached video reminds me more of Quake1 rather than Q3. It's awful!
    Yet, any opensource game has full dignity to live on, as long as people download and use it!

    What??? Quake 1 has amazing game art, excellent dark and twisted atmosphere and wonderful gameplay. It didn't became a cornerstone of FPS games by being awful :P

    Now, back to this TMNT game. Is it just me or the supposed "tails" actually look like dicks? Very weird game indeed

    That video is of an old version of Turtle Arena (0.5, june 2011). 0.6 improved texture quality.

    So its not an FPS but a Third Person Shooter? What gives?

    I would be surprised if someone creates a game without killing things using ioquake3.
