Default Unique Approach: Far Cry meets Shakespeare: The SturmMOD!

Projekt A.R.I.E.L. (ARTificial Research in Electronical Life) proudly presents the Far Cry "Sturm - MOD"! The mod is part of a theatre / media arts production done in summer 2008 as a project of students of the scenical arts at the university of Hildesheim, Germany. It provides an environment in which the places and actions described by William Shakespeare in his play "The Tempest" (German translation: "Der Sturm") can be visited, explored, experienced and reflected by the player. The mod was performed live in the production "Projekt A.R.I.E.L." as can be seen here: PICS . More content can be found on the MODDB - SITE as well as on the HOMEPAGE of "Projekt A.R.I.E.L." .
Please read the INFO.txt after downloading to learn how to set up the mod! If you are not familiar with the background of the play, it is recommended that you read the STORY.txt file provided in the mod folder.

Looking forward to your feedback and comments!

That's quite interesting. Is it simply the environment, or are there any interactive elements in the project?

The mod features both the places from the play (like Prospero's Cell - which is actually Prospero's Tent in the mod ) and interactive elements as the goal was to let the player experience situations from "The Tempest" from the first person perspective (like "taking over the role" of one of the characters). Furthermore the player can find many references to both our performance (in which the mod was played live in front of an audience) and media theories, e.g. from Marshall McLuhan.
If you have more questions, don't hesitate to ask, Adrir. For now, thanks for your interest!
