Minecraft – The Retro Look

After years of internal debate I finally decided to buy Minecraft, I’ve no idea why it took so long but the final thought that won the argument was… “Sure, why not”.

I’ve been playing the single player game, which pretty much goes thus; mining, crafting, building stuff, moving on, mining, crafting, building stuff, moving on, accidentally destroying village and local population, moving on, mining, crafting… you get the picture.

However, in addition to this I’ve also been inspired to build some stuff in creative mode (thanks to Helen on twitter). So feel free take a look at the fruits of my desk based labours below, the internet is alive with good reference material so a little research went into each character before hand. I found it an absorbing, fun and relaxing way to pass the time and a great way to recreate some awesome retro gaming icons.

Excuse me, are you going to eat those?

Tetris, seemed a good blocky place to start

Perhaps more to follow soon.

Thanks for looking and take care 🙂
