flOw recreated using the StarCraft II map editor

Modders never cease to amaze me. Maybe it's a simple thing to use StarCraft II's map editor to make a recreation of thatgamecompany's brilliant game, flOw. I wouldn't know because the very idea of trying to figure out how one would do such a thing intimidates the hell out of me.

Thank goodness that there are people out there to take care of those things for me. The above video shows exactly that: flOw with Zerg. I challenge you to find me a universe in which that is not an awesome thing. You can't because, even in a reality with infinite possibility, this would be irrefutably badass no matter where you were.

The gloves are coming off when it comes to StarCraft II mods. I'm hoping we'll see a lot more interesting stuff like this come out and less tower defense games. What do you think could make a good candidate?
