Intrigued by Nintendo’s competitive online multiplayer painting game but don’t own a Wii U? Thanks to the magic of custom maps, anyone with a PC and a copy of Minecraft can enjoy a fairly accurate Splatoon experience.
Minecraft artist Sethbling (via Polygon’s Owen Good) doesn’t have access to a Wii U himself, so he tagged in some friends to help him recreate Splatoon’s competitive painting in Minecraft, and the results are pretty spectacular. Two teams of up to four players take their pick of three different weapons and paint the town their assigned color. While shooting, they are kids. When the ammo runs low, they can become squids. One moment kids, the next—squids.
Check out the video below to see the game in action. It looks like amazing fun.
