Lemmings Get Crocheted!

I know we give Mario, Pac-Man, Space Invaders and Sonic plenty of geek craft love around here, but do you guys remember a little video game called Lemmings? I think I must have spent a million and one hours playing this game, despite the fact the concept really was just a 2-dimensional escort mission on steroids. Maybe that’s why I hate escort missions now.

So it’s good to see those iconic retro gaming mammals getting their due in amigurumi form. Handcrafted by June Gilbank, these little lemmings look just like their videogame counterparts, complete with fuzzy green hair, bulbous blue bodies, and tiny tools that get them out of (and occasionally into) trouble. June has lovingly recreated five of the games’ nine character types, including Walker, Floater, Blocker, Builder and Miner. Sorry, fans of Digger, Climber, Basher and Bomber will have to look elsewhere.

Want to make your own Lemmings? Head on over to Planet June for patterns and details on how to do it. Me? I think I’ll leave it to the sewing professionals. In the mean time, enjoy this fun DHTML version of Lemmings.
