Fortnite Was Inspired by Minecraft
Remember that Fortnite trailer? I was like, “Wow, this is like Minecraft.” You gather resources and build buildings with them during the day, and at night you defend your building from monsters and zombies and stuff. Yep.
Epic, to their credit, isn’t hiding the Minecraft connection. Design lead Lee Perry took to Twitter to make that comparison.
#Minecraft was an inspiration for sure.
Minecraft lets you build ANYTHING, we are focusing on constructing ‘buildings’ specifically.
I see lots of questions asking if #fortnite is freeform construction. It is. It’s not scripted or just boarding up existing structures.
Sounds good, guys. Sounds like a party.
