Splatoon-Inspired Mod Created in Team Fortress 2
Of course TF2 would get a Splatoon mod.
It was only a matter of time before fans would make Nintendo's Wii U shooter, Splatoon, appear on other systems via mods. Now, a user-created Team Fortress 2 mod has brought the Splatoon's paint-shooting action to the PC.
The Splat Fortress mod, created by YouTube user DrLilRobot and a small team of coders and artists, features pretty much everything you'd want in a Splatoon port. Players even have the ability to transform into a squid and swim through the paint they've put down on the ground.
Of course, there mod is rough around the edges. There seems to be only one usable weapon at the moment, and paint spreads in large squares rather than in organic splotches like in the real game. Also, the players all look like Demoman--although, to be fair, there is a sweet squid hat.
Considering this is a user mod created by a small group of fans, though, Splat Fortress is impressive. It's not available to the public yet, but it looks well on its way. And, if you don't own a Wii U, it'll probably be the only way for the foreseeable future that you can try out something resembling Splatoon.
