In context: Sloclap’s rogue-like Sifu is a good kung fu sport—top-of-the-line I’ve performed because the 2005 Xbox title Jade Empire. Despite the brutal studying curve, the sport’s fluid and principally correct kung fu types make it nearly as enjoyable to observe as it’s to play. What might make it higher?
How about a little bit Matrix aptitude? A modder who goes by Halfmillz on Nexus Mods has created a collection of Sifu modifications that give the sport an actual Matrix look. I say “look” as a result of the sport remains to be Sifu and lacks a Matrix storyline, however the aesthetic is kind of effectively finished (video beneath).
In whole, there are 4 mods that reskin the sport into one thing that matches completely into the Wachowskis’ sci-fi universe. The first replaces the unnamed protagonist with Shiny Entertainment’s Keanu Reeves mannequin from its 2005 sport The Matrix: Path of Neo. It consists of “real looking Physics Cloth” to simulate the stream of Neo’s trenchcoat.
The second mod swaps enemies with an Agent Smith mannequin, additionally from Path of Neo. There are 4 variations of this mod. One swaps out all enemies aside from bosses. Another replaces bosses with Agent Smith. A 3rd permits the participant to play as Smith, and the final modifications solely male enemies. Users can combine and match these mods aside from the male enemies one.
Halfmillz’s third mod makes use of ReShade the provides the sport a greenish tint throughout combat scenes after the enemies remodel into Agent Smith. The fourth makes use of a number of sound results from the films to recreate a extra Matrix-like soundscape.
You can use all of the mods collectively for a really spectacular total impact. Halfmillz additionally recommends utilizing Matrix UI, created by one other modder, to spherical out the expertise. All are free to obtain from Nexus Mods however have some dependencies, so examine the necessities earlier than making an attempt them out.
