Unreal tournament 3’s arsenal grows slightly more colorful and vastly more annoying with the addition of the popular rainbow-defecating pastry mutant, Nyan Cat.
Thanks to modder Scott Coxhead (and friends), you can now add insult to grievous injury by replacing Unreal Tournament 3’s most powerful, weapon, the Redeemer, with the rainbow-secreting feline of internet meme fame. Once unleashed, Nyan cat be guided around the battlefield, filling the arena with its appallingly catchy theme tune, and leaving a distinctive rainbow trail in its wake. When it reaches its target, or if it gets shot down – the trailer reminds us that Nyan Cat survival is not guaranteed – it erupts in a fiery multicolor “nyansplosion” killing everything nearby. Essentially, these modders have managed to replace the mild annoyance I feel upon hearing that goddamn song with genuine fear. Wonderful.
The mod also includes custom suicide and death messages for those poor souls claimed by the Nyansplosion, as well as a special rainbow-themed UI for the player guiding the terrible creature towards its target. It can be downloaded here.
