Over on Offworld, our Brandon's spotted a stellar Team Fortress-themed mobile:
One of Valve's most renowned character design theories, evident in all recent multiplayer games from Team Fortress to Left 4 Dead, is in creating each figure as a shape so distinct that they're instantly recognizable from nearly any distance, in any light.
