The Infamous Climax of ‘Infinity War’ Gets Retold as a 16-bit Video Game
The brutal final moments of Avengers: Infinity War have been remade as a 16-bit video game by Stratmasterj, and as usual his pixelated animations worked flawlessly to bring this iconic MCU moment to life as if it were a 1993 video game release.
SPOILERS IF YOU’VE SOMEHOW AVOIDED THEM THIS LONG FOR A MOVIE THAT CAME OUT SIX MONTHS AGO!
The remake starts just as Thanos arrives on Earth to beat the piss out of the Avengers, and it runs through the film’s ending on Thanos’ farm, so it captures the emotional gut punch of the film’s final moments. I think what really stood out in this remake though is its sound design, which both pays homage to old school video game chip tune sounds, as well as providing a chip tune remake of the somber music that played during Thanos’ snap.
This is easily one of the most comprehensive movies-as-retro-games project to-date, so head on up above to check it out. After it ends you can watch a split-screen comparison of the retro remake contrasted with the actual movie footage.
