The world of Minecraft is an opportunity to unleash unlimited creativity, and sometimes players use the game to show love for popular streamers.
Minecraft has been out for so long now that there are some gamers who practically grew up on it. As a video game that eats up hundreds of hours, the possibilities of what to create are near endless, with many players continuing to showcase incredible builds and unique creations. For some, there are even things that can be done in the game that the actual developer may not have thought possible, as one fan recently demonstrated.
Uploading a short clip to the Minecraft subreddit, user TheRigbyB has shown that it’s possible to create an animated gif in the blocky world. Using a complex series of functions and numerous differently textured blocks, they were able to create an animation of none other than popular Twitch streamer xQc, specifically the “despair” gif in which he quickly goes from a jovial smile into a moody sulk, with the background changing black.
The fact that TheRigbyB was able to make an entire gif in Minecraft is pretty spectacular. The clip even shows them moving closer to it to get a better look at the blocks changing smoothly and in unison. The image of xQc who recently broke the Twitch viewership record is very lifelike, not to mention enormous as well, and is pretty much a perfect replication of the original animation. In a response to one comment, the creator even said that they actually wanted to make a music video that was even bigger, but the game simply couldn’t handle it.
There are a slew of talented teams and individuals in the community that create many incredible and detailed builds within Minecraft, some of which are recreations of real-world buildings and structures. What TheRigbyB has done shows not only that there is an almost infinite number of ways that players can use the powerful tools and sprawling landscape that the game provides, but also that projects can be as complex as players want them to be.
Minecraft is one of the highest grossing video games of all time, and it’s not hard to see why. At more than ten years old, it would be understandable for some to think that the appeal of building in a low-resolution game would eventually wither. However, that doesn’t appear to be the case, as the popularity of Mojang’s IP seems to be as strong as ever, especially with all the unique projects players are creating.
Minecraft is available on Mobile, PC, PS4, Switch, and Xbox One.
