So, Someone Made Game Of Thrones In Minecraft
Here’s a little something to make you feel very inadequate on this day. Over on Imgur, a Minecraft player calling him or herself Fortunatemend is documenting their attempt to recreate the sprawling world of George R. R. Martin’s Song of Ice and Fire universe, AKA A Game of Thrones, using Minecraft. The work is ongoing, but they’ve made significant, and extremely impressive progress. For instance, drop your jaws at these examples:
Here’s (I think) King’s Landing:
And here’s The Wall, home of the Night’s Watch.
As you can see, Fortunatemend’s work is based on the HBO series’ take on Westeros, as the books contain precious little by way of visual material. I can’t wait to see how far this goes. See the entire gallery here.
