The popular browser fan game for AoT
Attack on Titan Tribute Game is a free action video game that lets you experience taking down the monstrous Titans. Developed by Feng Lee, this is a 3D browser fan game based on the popular Attack on Titan series. However, you can’t play the original version anymore since the servers are gone. You can now only play its active mods and the final Beta version released since the developer is creating Attack on Titan Tribute Game 2.
The fight for humanity’s survival
Attack on Titan—also known as “Shingeki no Kyojin”— is a 2009 Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Hajime Isayama. It follows the story of Eren Yeager, who becomes a member of the Scout Regiment of his nation to destroy all Titans—gigantic humanoid creatures that eat humans—after his mother is devoured by one. The popularity of the series helped spawn a successful anime adaptation in 2013 and the succeeding years. Additionally, several video games were based on it.
However, there wasn’t a lot of them during the first few years of the anime’s success. Thus, when Attack on Titan Tribute Game came out and can be freely played on web browsers, it became an instant hit with the fans. Its main glaring issue was the quality of the graphics and cheap-looking 3D models. For the fans who were still waiting for an official AoT game, though, that was hardly a real problem that could deter their enjoyment.
The fan game’s main selling point was its gameplay with the use of the iconic 3D maneuver gear. With it, your character could jump to incredible heights, zip around in mid-air, perform amazing flying stunts and somersaults, and get close enough to Titans to easily take them out. The gameplay’s entire vibe was similar to that of the high-octane action portrayed in the anime adaptation so that added to the game’s popularity.
Is Attack on Titan Tribute Game free?
That’s not the only selling point for this fan game. Another is that it’s completely free and can be played on browsers. However, after several years of no active development, its old servers have finally shut down. Plus, the Unity Web Browser plugin could no longer be downloaded. Only a few selected browsers can still support the game. The most stable version you can play is the Beta version that was the final release for AOTTG.
This is technically an unfinished version of Attack on Titan Tribute Game as the developer started working on the sequel, Attack on Titan Tribute Game 2 or AOTTG2. Still, the Beta version can be played and had even included some features from the more popular and approved AOTTG mods like the RC Mod. It offers an in-game map editor, two new difficulty levels called Dummy and Easy, and some in-game Titan characters like the Female Titan.
A great inspiration
Attack on Titan Tribute Game has left a great legacy for the series’ fans. While it’s not the best in terms of visuals and even proper controls, the gameplay it offered provided fans the fun they were looking for in the early years of Attack on Titan’s fame. You can still play it but don’t expect any more major updates coming. Luckily, there are other games similar to this, like Attack on Quest for VR.
