Donkey Kong fans, here is something for you today. Igor F has created an unofficial fan Donkey Kong Country game in Unreal Engine. This fan game, called A Tribute To Donkey Kong, is a tribute to the classic SNES platformer, and is available right now for download.
A Tribute To Donkey Kong features 12 levels, 200+ 3D models, 20+ characters with 120+ animations, 1000+ new game assets, 400+ textures, 30+ particles effects and over 3000 lines of code.
This fan project is far from perfect. As its creator acknowledged, there are still a few bugs here and there, the controls are a bit floaty and some animations need some work. Furthermore, the physics could also be improved. Unfortunately, though, Igor F does not plan to bring this project to Unreal Engine 4 or work any further on it.
Still, we believe this is a great opportunity to play a new Donkey Kong game on the PC, even though it’s an unofficial one.
Those interested can download it from here.
