I wouldn't normally post work that wasn't mine or by someone I didn't know, but I came across these cool images rendered as sprites for a pirate village area of a German RPG game called "Sacred: Underworld" (never heard of it or seen it). The artist's attention to detail is phenomenal.

A sample:




Scroll down to see all the images (larger than the sample):

Not really tiki, but very pirate-y and there's even some bamboo railings on the buildings.

Ok boppers, here is some tiki in the Warriors!

An Exotic drink is sold here.


A large tiki inside the funhouse where you fight the HiHats


Another in the funhouse




I went to get the costume, it wasn't a tiki.

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

Big Kahuna Reef! I love this game! totally addicting! Get over to Shockwave and play it. NOW! Don't expect to get anything else done while you go through each of the 150 levels.

Saw a review on a new online game at there.com. The starting point has Tiki huts where you can change your online look. http://www.herroflomjapan.com/ has a short movie and a podcast if anyone has a videopod. I haven't joined it yet cause i'm on my dial up at work but I'll check it out when I get home. Could be cool place for us to all meet.

Cheeky Half Jr. spends too much time playing 'World of Warcraft', or 'WoW' as the kids call it. Mr. Cheeky casually (and sarcastically) throws him the comment "I don't suppose there are any Tikis in that game of yours, Son?"

"Why certainly, Father" comes the polite reply. "Kindly allow me to demonstrate".

After watching his character hitch a ride on some flying beastie, battle innocent chickens and skin them, and then swim across an ocean to an island he proudly shows off "The Tikis of WoW".......



So there is indeed some educational value in these darn kids playing their stupid video games.

The second area in City of Villains has a mission where you have to fight a bunch of snake guys in a tiki theme Casino. Wish I wouldn't have canceled my account, otherwise I would get a few screen grabs.

In the new Sam & Max game (from telltale games) there are a bunch of tikis in the tattoo shop. Plus the game is great if you like old school point & click adventures with twisted humor.

I think there may have been some in the original Sam & Max game by Lucas Arts, but I can't find my copy (doh!)

Here's a screen-shot were you can just barely see half of one...


For 9 bucks, its worth playing.

The game Tradewinds 2 has a superweapon called a "Tiki Bomb". It is supposed to inflict heavy damage on enemy ships. One wonders if it is a flaming drink from the Bahooka, which is strong enough to inflict major damage on the unsuspecting.

If you're on a Mac, Wacky Mini Golf has a tiki course and a volcano course with lots of tiki action.
Don't know if they have a PC version:

Islands golf has some tropical slightly tiki stuff too, but Wacky Golf is a much better game.

I do see a mention to World of Warcraft. What is intersting is that the character posted is one of the horde Undead. If you want to look at a more tiki/island character, that would be the trolls and many of their villages. I will have to post screenshots later.

Anyone ever heard of The New Zealand Story (AKA Kiwi Kraze)?

wiki: The New Zealand Story

Game Play: The New Zealand Story

In this game you actually fight (what I assume to be) tiki-men with sunglasses on balloons. Hey the game was made for kids. There are also platform blocks in the game that look to be tiki sticking their tongues out (or could be Maori sticking their tongues out it is kinda hard to tell). The video link above shows the game and the blocks mentioned (round 2). Anyways you can find the game out for the PS2 called Taito Legends.

A game called "No More Heroes" for the Wii had a grouping of moai in a park. I couldn't find any images of it.
