- Minecraft offers creative freedom for players to build elaborate structures and pixel art installations.
- A player recreated the doctor’s clinic from Stardew Valley in pixel art form and received praise from other gamers.
- Minecraft’s block-based visual style and building system make it a perfect game for creating pixel art pieces.
A player of the popular sandbox title Minecraft created an impressive pixel art installation based on a structure found in another game, namely, the doctor’s clinic from Stardew Valley. The player shared their work online, where it received plenty of compliments from other gamers.
Minecraft has acted as a limitless virtual canvas ever since it was fully released by Swedish developer Mojang Studios all the way back in late 2011. Some players have built massive, elaborate structures and even terraformed entire worlds using the creative freedom the title provides, while others use the game for other projects like pixel art installations.
Two Minecraft Players Set Strange Record Involving Staircases
Minecraft players set another record with a unique staircase build, marking the game’s impressive ongoing evolution.
One Minecraft player, a Reddit user who goes by the name xxvirgilxx, recently earned the praise of their peers after they perfectly recreated the clinic from the cozy farm life simulator Stardew Valley in pixel art form. Photos of the towering work that were shared on the Stardew Valley subreddit showed an essentially flawless copy of the health facility that acts as the home and office of Harvey, Pelican Town’s sole physician. Harvey is among Stardew Valley‘s many marriage candidates, and he is considered to be one of the game’s best bachelors.
Community members praised the Minecraft pixel art piece, with one commenter claiming that it was so impressive that they thought the shared photos of the work were reference materials. For their part, xxvirgilxx said they were proud of the art installation, which took several hours to make and resulted in the player suffering from back pains. “I’ve never tried to do pixel works like this before,” they wrote in their post.
Minecraft‘s block-based visual style and building system make it the perfect game for creating pixel art pieces, so it is no surprise that many play the game precisely for that reason. An incredibly talented player utilized the creative freedom the sandbox title provided to build a Minecraft pixel art installation of the legendary Pokemon Rayquaza from the series’ third generation of games, while another created a portrait of the Final Fantasy franchise’s Red Mage character. One extremely resourceful Minecraft player even went a step further and made pixel art using the game’s bookshelves.
Aside from Minecraft, there are a lot of other games that are great for people who love pixel art. Among them is, of course, Stardew Valley, the beloved farm sim that was inspired by the Harvest Moon RPG series that is now known as Story of Seasons. There is also Terraria, another go-to title for pixel game lovers that is just as creatively stimulating as Minecraft.
