Portal’s ‘Still Alive’ composed using Minecraft note blocks

Minecraft + Portal Train2Game blog image

Minecraft has a huge following on the Train2Game forum, so given the subject of a new video that has appeared,  it’s a no brainer to post this!

Train2Game Minecraft players have probably already seen the Note Block that was released during the latest update. Some have probably even made their own little tunes.

However, they probably won’t have put as much effort as Tritex989 has into using the Note Blocks to compose the ending theme from Portal and all round internet favourite ‘Still Alive’ Apparently the project only took around 6 hours to complete which is rather staggering given the effort involved.

Train2Game students can watch Minecraft being used to play Still Alive in the video below.

It’s impressive, isn’t it? And you can download the map here. Also impressive is the fact that Minecraft has now been sold over 1 million times. Not bad at all for a game by an indie developer which only recently entered its Beta stage. Developer Notch says Minecraft will get a full release before the end of the year. For more information about the indie sensation that is Minecraft, on the Thoughts of Train2Game blog.

Train2Game blog readers will know that there’s a lot of love for Portal on the internet, with one example being this recreation of the game made using LittleBigPlanet 2.

Portal 2 itself is due for release on April 22nd this year, having originally been scheduled for February. You can check out a trailer here which features Stephen Merchant as robotic companion Wheatley. You can also see how the new additions of Faith Plates and Repulsion Gel work in these mini trailers.

So Train2Game, what are your thoughts on the Minecraft recreation of Still Alive? Will you download the level? And what songs would you like to make using Note Blocks?

As usual, you can leave your thoughts here on the Train2Game blog, or on the Train2Game forum.
