You know what may happen one of these Wednesday’s in the far future? You may see scenes from your favorite Atari 2600 games recreated in Minecraft. That’s right! Images from beloved 8-bit video games captured in homage in a beloved modern day game that acts like an 8-bit video game. Want a preview?
Here’s the classic game Fishing Derby.
And here is my Minecraft world.
And let me just note that I am using survival mode. No freebies here. I need to mine my own resources and battle all the nasties out there while recreating a childhood image. I will be adding colored carpeting in order to provide the appropriate coloring for the image. Right now I just need more yellow sheep. Oh, and I plan to surround the image with glass and then filling it with water for authenticity. I’ve already tested it to ensure that you can see through the glass and water in order to see the image.
Honestly, it may take years to finish, but it’s so much fun to map it out and then put it into pixelated reality.
