As previously discussed, Venus Patrol and MOCAtv's "alternative E3 event" HORIZON was pretty interesting both conceptually and in how it was executed. But what about the games?!

An ambitious fan of Minecraft and Star Wars has decided to mash together his two favorite things and recreate the first five minutes of the movie with blocks. He's hoping to recreate the entire film this way, but I'm guessing it will be awhile before he finishes it. Live long and prosper!
