Traffic Experience Xeno Monster EX
Make public transit more efficient by clearing the cars out of the way with a giant monster!
How to Play
Use the WSAD keys to move. Use the Q, E, and Space buttons to do different attacks.
You can also run by hitting a move key twice in the same direction.
The game is fairly straight forward. Move down the streets and crush cars and buses as you see fit.
No Install! Just play online!
You will be prompted to install "Google O3D" if you don't already have it.

Plays "Soul Calibur 4" more than "Street Fighter 4". Suspect he plays "Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe" the most.

This may be the first game created in Google O3D!
Neil didn't have time to upgrade his export pipeline to support Max's biped rig,
so they couldn't use their fancy mocap animations.
While the stiff monster is somewhat loveable, that wasn't really the plan.
Isn't it amazing what google technology can be coaxed into doing? I personally love to see things made to do things they weren't designed to do.
TEXMEX features classic comic book style graphics and simple gameplay mechanics. I'd love to see some helicopters, tanks and other monsters thrown into the mix in the future!
The sense of humour that prevades this game is fantastic.
I love the idea (monster clears traffic for transit), and it's a great excuse to destroy a city.
The isometric perspective, with Google Maps as the ground, works really well.
Alas, TexMex is currently more of a tech demo than a game (which the team fully admits).
