Quake 3 menus on the iPod Touch

Hey everyone, here's a new video. This time we've got Scott showing us navigating through the Quake 3 menus. We're excited that it performs so well since Space Trader game play relies on a lot of menus. Let me know what you think!

More Info...

Hi, for those of you who viewed our youtube of Scott and some iPods here's a bit more info on the video.

First off we (HermitWorks) are an independent video game developer and we use the Quake 3 engine. We wanted to see Quake 3 run on the iPod Touch as a first step to getting our game Space Trader running on the iPod.

So here's some facts:

1. yes, it's real. :)

2. we're not happy with the controls yet, but I'm amazed how quickly people adapt. and the controls *will* be awesome.

3. and yes, the iPod is going to be an awesome gaming device so start saving your money.

If you're curious about some of the technical details of our video, HermitWorks in general, or if you work at Apple send me a line!

If you have a PC or Mac and you're bored check out our demo of Space Trader at . :)
