Curious as to what the opening scenes of
The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening would look like if they were
painstakingly recreated as a stop-motion animation in Minecraft? Probably a
little something like this...
The final result is an impressive feat to
say the least – so much so it has Minecraft creator Markus 'Notch' Persson
questioning its authenticity. Critiquing the video on Reddit, he compared it to
other stop motion projects he deemed to be fake, saying, “This
stop motion video feels exactly the same to me. It's too perfect, it would be
much easier to automate, and it spends a lot of effort trying to convince me
Members of MinecraftA2Z's attempted to convince Notch no corners were cut in the creation of their animation, and directed him to their documentary video as proof. Regardless, Notch remained wary, adding, “A timelapse video of people building it would convince me. The 1,167 screens won't, as I could extract them myself from that [YouTube] video. I do not doubt the level exists. If you DID do this all legitimately, then I apologize, and I hope you find some pride in having fooled me so bad I openly accuse you of cheating. ;D.”
