I stumbled across this today:

http://www.tikigames.com

Although it looks to me like there is absolutely *nothing* tiki about it except for a partially-visible Shag-napped character.

This one is pretty funny, like a lot of the web based matching games, but with an underwater and tiki theme:

The Warriors video game, by Rockstar, comes out in October. Here's a screenshot of what is almost tiki:

Dude, Scott Baio was in Charge! You're mixing up your man-bitches.




(the above statement should not be seen as sexist, it's just that it's fun to say "man-bitch")

Just Bought "WE love Katamari"(amazing game btw). In one of the later levels you can roll up all the Moai on Easter Island and of course eventually roll up all of easter Island itself.

Also Im embarrassed to say I play it but well..... Neopets.com has a section in it called Mystery island which has some cool tikis in it. Neopets itself is a preteen kind of trading card type online game thang. I dunno, something about it has hooked my obsessive compulsive behavior. Im obsessed now with leveling up my neopet. And no, Im not buying any of the cards.......yet.

Hot damn! I had a Neopet when the site was new, about five years ago (!). Funny how we found it -- my company was doing a pet care information content database, and to keep consistent with our other dbs, neopets.com was the first domain name we tried. We thought it was bizarre that someone else would want that domain name; quickly the whole project team became obsessed with Neopets. This was long before the trading cards, magazines... I can't even imagine what you can do with your neopets today, back then about all you could do was buy and trade clothes & food, and take your neopet to the soup kitchen when you were poor. It must be pretty mind blowing today. I wonder if my Neopets are still alive?

Tiki Pac-Man would be cool. Think of a moai gobbling up mai tais, being chased by Jimmy Buffet fans.

Or, there is always:

Tiki game
portal.
and
Tiki Invaders

Kurswa: thanks for the memory of World Heroes Perfect, got in trouble for the Secret Garden sex move there!

An older project I works on, I dont recall if it had any tikis was Calibre .50 from Romstar. War plan crashes in the jungle, its time to find your way out of the POW camp. Didnt do the artwork, but its beautiful, a jungle any self respecting Tiki god would be proud to live . Check it out on MAME sometime.

Space Kadet and myself of WAITIKI have spotted tikis and tiki themes in a couple of oldskool nintendo and super nintendo games, namely StarTropics 1 & 2 (NES) - polynesian/islandy theme; Adventures of Joe & Mac 1 & 2 (SNES). i'll try and get some screenshots up.

I'm surprised this thread got so far without mention of There.com. It's got a virtual island chain in it, pretty much crawling with tikis. It even has a few tiki bars.

There offers free trials... the site is
http://www.there.com/

The former art lead put up some pages describing There's design philosophy here... http://home.comcast.net/%7Edccreative/ArtOfThere/intro.htm

And his full site, with some additional tiki work, is at http://doncarsoncreative.com/

And if you visit There... please add "Baron" to your buddy list. I'll happily give tours.

I think this one is really an African mask sighting, but perhaps some of the designs cross the line into honorary tiki? It's a comic book thing.

City of Heroes (www.cityofheroes.com) has a villain group called "The Banished Pantheon."

Here's a giant combat totem:

There are some masks flying around, too, though they look pretty African...
