You can use Minecraft to build homages to the most advanced modern games - but what if you tried it the other way around?
The incredibly adaptive - and incredibly successful - indie hit Minecraft may be best known for its nigh-limitless creative potential. We've seen Minecraft architects replicate tons of wonderfully geeky sites in-game, from BioShock Infinite's flying city of Columbia to Star Trek's Starship Enterprise, and even a full-scale working computer.
Now, what if you did that in reverse? While not quite as insanely customizable as Minecraft, Left 4 Dead 2 has spawned many a clever custom map. It seemed only natural, then, for modder Michael Louisseize to make a Left 4 Dead 2 campaign in the style of Minecraft.
This claustrophobic and mazelike zone is merely the first part of the campaign Louisseize calls "Mines of the Living Dead." According to the creator, the finished campaign will feature four sections, open-world areas and puzzles, and a finale that takes place on a rapidly moving mine cart.
More games need to have mine cart levels these days, I think.
