Minecraft Fan Recreates Launcher Wallpaper In-Game – GameRant

The Minecraft launcher has been seen by millions of gamers to such an extent that it’s become quite iconic, and one fan recreates it in-game.
Let it never be said that a game's opening screen can't be just as integral as the story contained within it. There are some iconic video game start screens that have come about over the decades, such as the one from Super Mario 64 or Skyrim, to use a more contemporary example. That first image that gives the option to launch a game or go into the options can help give some insight into what's in store for players. Minecraft is no exception to this, and one person has recreated the game's current launcher screen.
Reddit user RealGeeBao has decided to take the very first thing that fans see when they boot up Mojang's open-world sandbox title and see if they can make it in the game itself. The result is pretty impressive, and while it's not really a complicated structure to recreate, a screenshot from their game shows that it does resemble that first screen. In fact, they've even uploaded an image of the official Minecraft launcher so people can compare the two. They've also shared a screenshot of the game that tries to depict the correct time of day used on the launcher in an attempt to get the lighting right.

People in the comments have been leaving compliments for the user, and there have even been some suggestions on how to make it look more authentic, such as increasing the game's FOV. RealGeeBao has even gone so far as to upload a second image showing a crown-wearing pig near the cave. This is a reference to the YouTuber Technoblade who sadly passed away last month. Mojang decided to honor him by inserting the aforementioned pig into the launcher because a pig wearing a crown was the content creator's well-known avatar.

In general, fans love to create all sorts of things in the blocky world, such as one player who built an incredibly detailed Minecraft desert home, or the duo that has managed to build some aspects from Breath of the Wild, such as the Sheikah tower. There's pretty much a never-ending list of things that people can do in the game.
The fact that Minecraft is one of the biggest video games in terms of map size affords players the opportunity to really let their imaginations run wild. It's for this reason, and the fact that it transcends age groups, that Minecraft is still as popular today as it was when it first made an appearance in 2009, and it doesn't look as though things will be slowing down any time soon.
Minecraft is available now for Mobile, PC, PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
