Yes. Your very own Jade Raymond. Amazing but true. And it's all possible thanks to 3D Dot Game Heroes. The game's website features a simple-but-fun character creation tool that lets you create whatever you fancy using lovely tiny 3D cubes.
I thought I'd make Jade Raymond. This is what it turned out like:
I based my design on this picture of Jade. Admittedly it's pretty old, but there haven't been any new ones for a while:
I know it's not an exact copy, but I couldn't very well spend hours creating a pixel perfect Jade. At least not during work hours. I was going to make Peter Molyneux as well, but the whole Activision Bungie thing happened and I just didn't get round to it. Maybe tomorrow.
Anyway, if you've got bugger all to do, there are worst ways to spend your time on the internet. You don't have to make Jade Raymond. Go and have a play. You can even save and download your creation as an animated gif.
If you want to see what miracles can be achieved with the actual in-game character editor from the PS3 exclusive, have a look here to see Mario, Companion Cube and more.
