    It could be similiar to garrys mod except not nearly as in depth. I know it would have to be a very big download, but I am willing to give up 500+ mb of space for something like this. Anyone else think this would be great to have?

    I want to know if this is actually possible. It seems as though it could be on 3gs and ipod touch 3g because of the openGL. Can a developer say if this is possible? It would be cool to be a 3d rendered world.

    Obviously, it wouldn't be the Source Engine - which plays a big part in Gmod.

    A fully 3D world is entirely possible. Look at the various FPS games on iPhone OS right now. They all use game engines, and all render fully 3D worlds.

    There's no reason that a Gmod type game COULDN'T be developed, but we're talking about a lot of time from a team of people. Then, it comes down to function. Gmod uses a lot of keys, shortcuts, and commands to work. Even then, it's fairly clunky.

    tl;dr = It's possible, but would be a huge undertaking and may not be easy to play.

    I know it wouldnt be as full functional or have all those shortcuts. But what about this, put it on the cydia store and then use bluetooth keyboard for shortcuts and other stuff. It would have random characters obviously on a much weaker engine of course. Maybe even adding support for a bluetooth mouse. I really just want to know if anyone is willing to try and develop it.
