Fans Have Created a Splatoon Mod for Team Fortress 2


Sound the copyright ninjas! Some fans have made a Splatoon mod for Team Fortress 2, and it looks quite glorious, even in its early state.

Featured above, you can view the reveal trailer for Dr. LilRobot and crew’s Splatoon mod, which introduces the painting mechanic seen in the Wii U game, as well as the ability to physically transform into a squid, enabling you to swim through your ink-coated environment.

The modders have made a point in saying this is video is indicative of an alpha version of their mod. They reportedly have lots of things planned, and are making it different enough from Splatoon itself so they can encourage regular Team Fortress 2 players to give it a whirl.

The most hilarious thing, however, is their disclaimer regarding the use of copyrighted material: “Any and all Splatoon assets used in this mod/video are ©Nintendo and is used without permission,” Dr. LilRobot and crew said in their video.

    Saw this a few days back and couldn’t stop laughing from it. It was just great with how they did everything.

    of course TF2 had to get a splatoon mode sooner or later
    but as usual with all the splatoon copies the ink mechanics are nowhere near as good as the real deal

    Admittedly Splatoon is a derivative of Color Wars. But everything is derivative really.

    Personally, i’d be more impressed if a Splatoon demake was done in the DECORATE programming language for ZDOOM and its derivatives.
