Starcrafts: A cute and loving animated take on the Heart of the Swarm opening cinematic. Zerg aren’t all that bad, guys!
If there’s one thing that Blizzard would have you believe in their phenomenal Starcraft series it’s that the Zerg are bad! Hungry, ravenous, tooth and clawed alien freaks, hell bent on nothing but destruction and the consumption of all things. For the Swarm and all that jazz
Well, one creative force out there is trying to eradicate that underlying belief that has gripped so many in to hating our gooey alien counter parts, by taking an artistic approach that will (hopefully) change your views forever.
Some of you may be familiar with CarBot Animations, creator of the much loved series of Starcraft 2 animated shorts, Starcrafts.
Earlier this week during the European Heart of the Swarm release party, those at the event and watching the stream were treated to a world exclusive of the latest Starcrafts episode that redepicted the Heart of the Swarm opening cinematic in hand drawn, animated form. By god, it’s cute!
Zerg just want to be loved =[
Sure, it isn’t one of Blizzards world class cinematic, but put your pitchforks down and give these little guys a chance! If it doesn’t get a laugh out of you or change your view on the Zerg swarm forever, then you sir/madam, have no heart! These cute little derp-faced zerglings don’t want to kill you, they just want to lick you…a lot…which could lead to death…but that’s not the point! Then those cute little Ultralisks, they just want to hug and love you. Sure, they’re fifty times bigger than an average human being and could crush you in a heart beat..but hugs guys! hugs!
Oh and not to mention, did you ever wonder why that Battlecruiser was falling out of the sky in the original trailer? Well, we now have somewhat of an answer! Hoorah!
So joking aside, be sure to check out the video above for a few giggles and if that takes your fancy, head on over to CarBots YouTube page for some more Starcrafts hilarity!
