Finding love is not always easy especially when your just a cube living in a big cube world. “Lovecraft: A Minecraft Love Story” is a co-op adventure/love story that takes place in the cube world of Minecraft, created by video game artist and Art Nerd For Hire Jonny Rice for the gaming channel Machinima. “This is the pilot episode of a web-series that I wrote and directed while working at Machinima,” says Jonny. “The entire project took less than a month from start to finish. I was responsible for capturing video using 3 computers at once as well as creating the story boards, poster art, and editing the sound effects. In addition, I also voiced the antagonist Magmas.”
The pilot episode introduces couple Coal and Rose who find their love tested when a jealous wizard Magmas forces Coal into an epic quest to save his sweetheart.
Ohio based Kalli Cakes
built their own Minecraft
world from blocks made of fondant and cake for this real world wedding of Carol and Kyle. The Minecraft
cake is made from dark chocolate cake, buttercream filling and icing with each hand cut fondant square applied individually to recreate the pixelated look of the game. Also creating cupcake blocks to represent Cake, Squid, Creeper, Redstone Ore with Torch, Brick, Gold Ore and Diamond blocks for the wedding.
After getting engaged at MineCon with the help of the game’s creators; gaming couple Asia and Matt have been inseparable ever since, both in the game and in real life. So of course they would have a Minecraft-themed wedding which included a Minecraft “diamond” necklace for the bride, low-res Minecraft pattern ties for the groom and groomsmen and some Minecraft sculptures which were lent to Matt and Asia from artist Greg Aronowitz. There were also a number of hand-made pieces for their ceremony made by the couple’s friends, such as Minecraft trees and other elements from game’s world.
The wedding and reception was held at Beatnik Studios in Downtown Sacramento Lisa and Geoff the husband and wife photography team behind The Goodness was on hand to capture every pixel perfect moment. JunkBoy, the Art Developer on Minecraft who designed the “marry me” graphic for Matt to use to pop the question can be seen on the blue Jones soda bottles. Jones Soda provided the bottles featuring different elements from the game on the labels for the reception.
