Gamers love recreating objects and locations—especially fictional ones—within games. In Minecraft, for example, there are whole servers dedicated to projects like constructing, block for block, a fully to-scale version of the world of Game of Thrones. The only thing it lacks is the incest (that we know of).
Trouble with Minecraft is, once you build a huge castle or the U.S.S. Enterprise, you can look at it and go inside it, but you can’t shoot people with laser guns in it. That’s (presumably) why Imgur user Bearskopff builds stuff in the Halo map editor, “Forge”: at the end, you get to grab a shotgun and blast your pals.
Bearskopff’s latest Forge creation is possibly the goofiest place to have a Halo fight ever: Princess Peach’s castle from Super Mario 64. Yup, a pleasant place to invite your favorite plumber for cake, and then get kidnapped by a turtle dragon, is now a battleground for SPARTAN supersoldiers. The map is huge, and very nearly taxed Halo 5: Guardians’ Forge mode to the limit—the game lets you place 1,024 individual objects on a given Forge map. Bearskopff used 1,023, on his third attempt. His first two were woefully over the limit.
Check out more images on Bearskopff’s Imgur post, which also points to where Halo players can download the map to use in-game.
