Minecraft was originally released in 2011 and has been a huge video game success. The ability to build and construct whole worlds and items is a clear comparison to LEGO products. In fact, they’re so obvious that the game’s Danish developer, Mojang, even collaborated with the LEGO Group to create official LEGO Minecraft sets.
Now GamerantReports that an enterprising modder is using the user name of AlexTestria has managed to create a resource pack for the game that changes the look of Minecraft’s blocks to LEGO pieces. Brickcraft is a resource pack that makes Minecraft look more LEGO-like. It adds LEGO pieces to the blocks and adds studs to their tops. A TikTok video of the pack was recently uploaded to the Minecraft Subreddit, showing off the game’s new look.
Resource packs allow you to change the appearance of Minecraft. They are available in-game from Mojang and third-party developers. Although Brickcraft is an unofficial LEGO product and the LEGO logo doesn’t actually appear in the pack, the references are strikingly obvious.
Interestingly, the first episode of Bits N’ Bricks, the official LEGO podcast, mentioned that a game also called Brickcraft was in development a few years ago, but never got off the ground. It was to be a collaboration between Mojang, the LEGO Group. Although a prototype of the game was built, it never saw the daylight of day. It is unclear if Brickcraft’s resource pack name is just a coincidence.
Minecraft can be downloaded on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S and Nintendo Switch, Android, iOS, and other systems.
