Train2Game news: Your Minecraft creation could feature in the official Minecon trailer

Train2Game students who’ve made custom Minecraft skins could see them feature in an official trailer at Minecon, the Minecraft convention taking place in Las Vegas next month.

Indie sensation Minecraft is popular on the Train2Game forum, so there’ll no doubt be some Train2Game students who want to get involved in the contest.

To celebrate Minecon, Minecraft trailer producers, The Hat Films, are giving fans the opportunity to see their custom skins feature in the official trailer.

“We will randomly be selecting subscribers from our Youtube channel and messaging the winners for their Minecraft user names, so that we may tear the skin from your virtual blocky bodies and thrust them upon NPCs in game.” said a Walrus representing The Hat Films in their video announcement, which Train2Game students can see below.

Train2Game students could therefore potentially see their custom Minecraft skin seen at the convention which will coincide with the ‘full’ release of Mojang’s title.

Despite still being in beta, Minecraft has been purchased over three million times. For more information on the full release of Minecraft, see this post on the Train2Game blog.

The popularity of Minecraft saw developers Mojang walk away with the ‘Downloadable Game of the Year’ at the Golden Joysticks.  The success of Minecraft provides inspiration for many Train2Game students.

So Train2Game, have you produced Minecraft skins? Will you enter the contest?
