Skywind, part of the Elder Scrolls Renewal project, aims to recreate Morrowind in Skyrim’s engine. It has been in development since 2012 and probably won’t be ready for a while. To help cope with that fact, I look at the team’s progress videos as mere instances of 3D Morrowind fan art. So let’s look at some fan art!
Can’t afford, or don’t have time for an actual cruise? Spend a couple minutes exploring this 1:1 scale recreation of a cruise ship. In Minecraft, of course.
While you may or may not agree on whether it’s the series’ best, Duke Nukem 3D was still a very important milestone in first-person shooter history.
Who needs a vacation to the Carribeans when you can just boot up this lovely Assassin’s Creed Havana map in Minecraft? The majority of people, probably. But hey, it’s still a pretty cool build.
Morrowind, the third Elder Scrolls RPG, has a rich and somewhat complicated story. Luckily, now we have a Facebook timeline to simplify it all. Humorously.
This being the creator’s first attempt at serious animation, there’s lots of rough... animation, in the clip. And there’s also spoilers for Undertale’s Pacifist route, so if you haven’t beaten the game yet, beware. Otherwise, you’re in for a good time.
It’s one thing to draw or paint a character you like, and another to model them in high definition—as Nimlot26's version of Éomer (his version of the Karl Urban version of Éomer) shows.
Admittedly it looks and moves more like a worm (it’s even partly made of slime blocks), but hey, it’s underwater and it keeps you dry. A bit proof of concept-y, but it’s a Minecraft submarine.
Nothing like a burning church inside a giant truck.
This must be an alternate Sonic whose MO is to make enemies keel over from his cuteness. He was doodled by kawacy, who otherwise specializes in anime-style art—his gallery is right here, if you want to check him out, and below’s a timelapse video depicting the painting process.
Mini nukes sure look a lot more high-tech on the inside.
New in First 4 Figures’ world of pricy collectible toys is this Mega Man X Zero statue. At 17 inches high, it comes in the usual flavors of Standard (two weapons) and Exclusive (two weapons plus LEDs embedded in the base and Zero), priced at $260 and $300. The statue can be pre-ordered here and here.
Chrono Trigger started out with a boy and a girl running into each other at a fair. Only, the fair I remember was way less 3D.
The comic-slash-game, called Hoverboard, was created to celebrate the release of XKCD creator Randall Munroe’s latest book, Thing Explainer. It’s a lot deeper than it looks at first glance.
Very serene, up until the point when the spider mech starts shooting boxes of TNT at another mech. But that’s just what Minecraft mechs do.
The above gif progresses as follows: Minecraft 3D art as it’s meant to be viewed, as a 2D-ish render; Minecraft 3D art in-game; Minecraft 3D art in-game, but closer. It’s quite the transformation.
Trevor, Franklin, Lamarr and Michael are here, as the Teletubbies, ready to make your morning gloriously stupid.
The castle hub from Mario 64 got a rather faithful recreation in the form of a Minecraft map.
Debuting in Fallout 3, the Shishkebab is, at its most basic level, a sword made of junk that’s on fire. In honor of the blade’s return in Fallout 4, a fan decided to make a real one. It went terrifyingly well.
