I honestly haven’t had time to pick up Minecraft and play with it yet, but after seeing this video of yet another creative use for the game, I think I might have to find the time.
Minecraft modder copyboy managed to figure out a way to recreate the walking-through-walls experience of Portal inside the game’s retro-style graphics engine. All you need to do to create a portal is to pick either an orange or blue texture, then destroy that wall to make it into one.
Here’s another video of a Minecraft Portal server with a couple of players blasting through walls and pushing around some weighted companion cubes.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=omABb3sfevI
Sure, it doesn’t look as pretty as the real version, but that’s part of the charm of Minecraft, right? Read more about Minecraft Portal over on the Minecraft forums.
