The Dark Mod
“My own game”
If you’ve ever wondered what a turn-based fighting game would look like, there’s good news: Toribash answered this question fifteen years ago, and in a rather unusual way. Here, players control their characters with anatomically correct musculature. To set the dummy fighter in motion, you need to tighten or relax certain muscle groups – in Toribash, it is not the speed of reaction that is important, but spatial thinking and the ability to calculate your actions several moves ahead. Based on this interesting mechanic, the community has created hundreds of game modes: from judo, aikido and wushu to obstacle courses where you can practice parkour. Understanding Toribash is not easy, but the gameplay captures for a long time – it’s not in vain that the game has been around for so many years.
