We all love Minecraft and its goofy, blocky graphics, but what if the game featured a bit more detail and realism to them? Animator and YouTube user Flashcode has started his own series which uses Blender to re-imagine the world of Minecraft if it was more than just elemental blocks piled on top of one another.
Granted, this isn’t exactly Skyrim we are looking at here, but the grass, trees, and enemy skeleton all have wonderful charm to them, a fine mix between realism and cartoonish imagination. I especially love how this revamped Steve moves his arms and legs as he creeps around the window or leaps up ledges. It gives this makeover a very Mirror’s Edge kind of feeling to it.
Shame we’ll never actually get to see Minecraft look like this, unless Microsoft says otherwise, but be sure to check out Flashcode’s other animations just to get a better glimpse as “What if…”
