CarBot Animations, the animator behind the adorable and hilarious StarCrafts series, has launched a new series based on World of Warcraft.
On March 28, Blizzard Entertainment and CarBot Animations announced a new series of animations based on World of Warcraft. CarBot Animations released the first episode of WoWcraft on Friday, and new episodes will be released every other Thursday. The first episode, titled 'The Creation', explores the common frustrations of character creation in World of WarCraft. CarBot Animations is best known for StarCrafts, a series of animated shorts about StarCraft II. Two seasons of the series are complete, and a third is currently being produced. The comedic animated shorts feature adorable, dog-like zerglings, the ever-frustrated Protoss zealot, and ineffectual Terran marines.
CarBot Animations has produced videos on nearly every Blizzard property. On March 24, CarBot Animations released an animated take on the Diablo II: Reaper of Souls cinematic. They also released a tribute to Heroes of the Storm, Blizzard's upcoming MOBA, which is currently in technical alpha. Last year, CarBot Animations produced a trailer for the StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm expansion. StarCraft II patch 2.1 even added CarBot-themed portraits for each race.
CarBot Animations is the work of Jonathan Burton. Carbot Animations began in October 2012, with StarCrafts. Burton is now on his third season of StarCrafts, with new episodes published each Saturday. Official StarCrafts merchandise is available directly from Blizzard. Carbot Animations is also supported through Patreon, which allows fans to contribute by pledging a tip for each episode created.
