Not quite the same experience.
It’s all fun and games until Fortnite is banned at school, at least until you discover Fortnite on Scratch.
Scratch is an online coding community where kids can create and share their own games and animations, but students are now using it to play knockoff versions of Fortnite when it’s banned from school. Among the hundreds of Fortnite related creations, the fan game simply titled “Fortnite” by 5j-essex, is by far the most popular with over 500,000 views since it was uploaded in January of this year.
Although the fan creation bears little resemblance to the original Fortnite, it does show what a little imagination can do for creative minds. Sometimes you can’t pick up items that randomly appear and motionless enemies almost always have perfect aim, but that’s not the point. Kids who play Fortnite passionately are using that devotion to create something on their own.
A more recent version also named “Fortnite” by huntedskelly shows how far this trend has progressed. In this version, players have access to the lobby where they can pick custom skins and emotes, and the actual gameplay is now a side-scroller where each level takes place in a different named location.
Even the Infinity Gauntlet is being teased for a release on June 10.
Over 1,000 comments have been left on huntedskelly’s project. Chanda-Panda chimes in saying, “This is the best game on scratch and one of the best game I have ever played. The graphics (art and animations) are amazing (apart from the lag). I am in awe!”
Not everything is perfect, of course. Another user by the name of DraculaSoul explained, “im so mad! i had 650 v bucks, the battle pass, take the L, the thanos back bling, and the legendary loading screen. Is there any way to get my progress back?”
Scratch has proven to be a great outlet for kids willing to learn how to code. Amid all the Fortnite projects are a number of cool unique and original creations.
Recently, Fortnite’s logo and an update file were spotted on the Nintendo Switch eShop. Use our Week 5 challenges page for tips on finding the Greasy Grove treasure map and using the disco ball at Loot Lake.
