Sonic Adventure Minecraft

The goal of Sonic Adventure Minecraft is to recreate the entire game of Sonic Adventure in Minecraft as well as include brand new areas you can explore.
Massively expanding upon the city of Station Square and turning it into a real city with locations from other well known Sonic games thrown in as well.
There are hundreds of unique pedestrians in the game you can interact with as well as Chao populating the Chao Gardens and badnik/enemies populating the action stages.

You can download Beta V3 of the project from here:…
You will need to be using Minecraft 1.6.4 to run the map properly. Everything you need will be provided for with the download file though please be aware it may be a lengthy and complicated process if you haven't already adapted to Minecraft 1.6.4.

Visit the archive section of my journal if you want to download any previous versions of the project.

You can see plenty of videos of the project in action on my youtube channel here:…

Shenmue Minecraft

The goal of Shenmue Minecraft, like Sonic Adventure Minecraft is to recreate the entire game of both Shenmue 1 and 2 in Minecraft, complete with my own unique areas and locations to create a huge expansive world out of an old game.
The map of Yokosuka in this project is going to be huge and will cover many unique districts that will be new to Shenmue fans such as Aida Park, Lamistar Shopping District, Takome Village, etc.

In the final version, you'll be able to travel from Yokosuka to Hong Kong through Amnihama Station which will take you to Wan Chai, Kowloon, Guilin, Shanghai, Tokyo and Guiyang, the city featured in my Shenmue 3 fan-fiction novel.… (Guiyang being heavily inspired by the map from Sleeping Dogs)

I also plan to populate the city with thousands of unique NPC's, both familiar and original. (Though in the current betas you'll only be able to interact with Shenmue exclusive characters)

Minecraft World

As well as both Shenmue and Sonic Adventure, I've also started working on another major project where I plan to recreate real life towns and cities across the UK using Minecraft and Google Maps. Each town and city is going to be it's own project but the overall project is going to simply be called Minecraft World.
So far I'm just going to be focusing on each town's shopping center and working my way out into the suburban and industrial areas later on. My focus right now is Cheltenham Spa and Exminster Village but I'll soon be spreading out into Birmingham, Gloucester, Exeter, Exmouth, Paignton, Goodrington, Torquay, Bristol, London, Dawlish, Teignmouth, Newton Abbot, Stroud, Brixham, Sidmouth, and Seoul (South Korea).

I have plenty of other towns and cities planned afterwards if I feel it's worth the effort, but these 17 areas will be my main focus for the time being.
None of this should really interfere with both Sonic Adventure and Shenmue Minecraft, it's really more of a side project to go alongside them.
I'll keep updating on the progress as I go so for now, watch this space.

Other Projects

Animal Crossing Minecraft

This is a side project I'm working on in an attempt to bring the world of Animal Crossing to Minecraft. The finished version is going to be a huge world of over 20 unique villages all connected by a railway system, a large city and small town to explore, a tropical resort island and even chao gardens. Every single existing Animal Crossing NPC will be part of the project as well as over 50 human residents that you can interact with.
No word on when the project will be finished but as it's much smaller than my other projects, I'd much rather release the finished version for download instead of releasing updated beta versions every year.

You can see an early sneak preview of the project here:

SegaSonic ArcadeCraft

The goal of this project is to recreate the 1992 arcade cabinet game, SegaSonic Arcade in Minecraft, letting you play with either Sonic, Ray or Mighty as you have to traverse each of the 7 stages of Eggman's Island and survive the deadly traps and obstacles along the way.
This is only a short project so I plan to release the full game for download when it's ready, rather than releasing earlier builds for download every year.
You can see an early sneak preview of the project down below.

Sonic 1 Minecraft

Sonic 1 Minecraft is going to be a recreation of the 1991 classic Sonic the Hedgehog on Megadrive in full 3D. The stages are going to be completely redesigned from the ground up and I'm going to be making the game using the original sprites for each level as well as populating the game with Badnik enemies, animals and new challenging boss fights.
I have future plans to give Sonic 2, 3, Knuckles and CD the same treatment.

Wreck it Ralph Minecraft

This is a project I don't intend to even start for a long time but it's something I've been passionate about doing for a long while now.
I intend to recreate the entire world of Wreck it Ralph from the Movie in Minecraft.
Game Central station will be the central hub and from there you can travel to over a dozen different arcade worlds, from Fix it Felix Jr, Sugar Rush, Hero's Duty to other licenced arcade franchises like Sonic Championship, Mortal Kombat, Street Fighter and many more.

Shenmue 3: The Complete Saga

Shenmue 3: The Complete Saga is my attempt to continue and finish off Yu Suzuki's Shenmue saga which has been in limbo since the Dreamcast died in 2001.
This project is basically my own interpretation to how I personally envision Shenmue 3, should it ever exist someday. There's going to be 11 chapters in the story bringing Ryo through Guilin, Kowloon and to the Chinese city of Guiyang where the story finally concludes.
The project has been on hold for a long while now but you can read the current 8 chapters of my story here:…
I'll update when the rest are ready,

Hopefully someday I'll turn this into a web comic and maybe even an animated movie or game but for now I'm more concerned with having the story itself finished and uploaded for those interested to be able to read and have some sort of closure with the series, even if it is just a fictional interpretation.

Katherine and Hippoloid

This is a project of mine that I've been passionately taking about for years yet have very little to show for in terms of progress, but Katherine and Hippoloid was my first project that I started when I was 15 and have been very enthusiastic and passionate about ever since.
It's a 5 part story about a girl named Katherine and her best friend Rhys who (while never explained in the story) both have superhuman like abilities to be able to defy gravity and basically travel around the world as freely as a feather.
But in the story their entire world is under attack from an alien invasion lead by an evil tyrant known only as Untitled and a secret resistance group lead by a small hippo named Hippoloid join forces with Katherine & Rhys in an effort to stop the invasion and save both of their worlds from Untitled's rule.

Outside of concept character artwork and the story itself I don't have much to share on the project but I really do hope in the future to be able to turn this into my own video game series, animated series or at the very least a web comic.

This is a project I've been passionate about for most of my entire life now.


This is a project I started when I was in college and was hoping to turn it into a side scrolling horror game for Newgrounds and DeviantArt but my attention has shifted towards other things and the project currently remains in Limbo.
Basically the premise of the project is a 3 part horror series about a teenage boy named Andrew who wakes up in a post apocalyptic future that's completely alien to him. He finds himself all alone in what appears to be a normal city that after sunset becomes Mysteriously infested with zombies, but as he digs deeper into this doomed society he realises that the secrets behind this reality go much, much deeper.

I don't know when I will continue working on this project but concept art for it does exist in my DeviantArt gallery so you can at least have a rough idea of what the project looks like.

Outside of this, I have plenty of other projects in the works, from fan games to animated shorts, comic books and loads more. It's a long road ahead but I'm going to work hard to try and make it all happen. Hopefully you'll enjoy what I have in store.

Sonic Adventure and Shenmue Minecraft August 2014

Journal Entry: Mon Aug 18, 2014, 8:22 AM

::The Crimson Emo's Journal::

Cross paths by TheCrimsonEmo Dudley St, Birmingham 5 by TheCrimsonEmo Westgate St, Gloucester 5 by TheCrimsonEmo Commission: Katherine and Rhys by QuantumJinx

Hey guys, welcome to my DA page.

Here I plan to bring you all my latest projects for the future as well as upload all my artwork and photography.
My main aspiration in life is to make it big as an animator and game designer, I hopefully wanna move to the big city and set up my own little art studio so I can make my dream happen.
Thanks so much for supporting, and hopefully you'll enjoy my work too when it's ready.
- Ashton

I am grateful for everyone who views and enjoys my work, sorry if I can't respond to every single comment and message I get but I hope you understand, very often I'm really busy and I can only respond to a handful of messages at a time.

If you wanna use my Photography as stock or colour in any of my art, don't hesitate to ask. But please wait for my permission first otherwise I'm going to treat your devitation as art theft and instantly report it.

::Sonic Adventure and Shenmue Minecraft August 2014::

I want to deeply apologise for taking so long to upload this. I know I promised a July 30th update but I've been so busy in the real world, plus have been having a few internet related issues to boot that I just haven't been able to meet that deadline. (Even though the files were technically ready for upload on that date.)

But nonetheless I've combined both projects into one convenient download file for you here.…
I hope you enjoy it.

I've been receiving an overwhelming amount of positive feedback on Shenmue Minecraft lately, not only from dedicated Shenmue fans but even from gaming sites like Pushsquare, Game, AreaGames, GamesBlog and NG4.
I seriously cannot believe it and I can't thank you all enough for your support.
I'm very eager to please so I'll continue working towards making these projects as impressive as I possibly can.

If you're not already aware, I uploaded videos a few months ago of the projects in action on my new computer with SEUS 10.1 shaders running.
You can see them on my main page.

Because I'm now working full time I sadly don't have as much free time to dedicate to these projects and since those videos were made, not that much has changed.
Most of my attention went towards improving the Mystic Ruins and Westopolis in Sonic Adventure Minecraft and New Sakuragaoka and Takome Road in Shenmue Minecraft.
Some improvements are subtle, others are much larger, but because I have less spare time to dedicate to these projects, sadly updates will no longer come as often as they used to.
I'll try to update twice a year but it may only end up being once a year from now on depending on how much I can get done within the timeframe.
We'll see how things go.

I should probably also mention if I haven't before that you now need to be using Minecraft 1.6.4 to run the maps properly. Everything you need is provided for with the download though I personally strongly recommend also downloading Optifine and the latest shaders mods to get the full experience. (I provide links for those as well).

One last thing I need to bring up before I wrap this up.
About a year ago I started a promotional contest for Sonic Adventure and Shenmue Minecraft where I hid over a dozen Chao, Kiki Robots and BladeSpinner Robots throughout both Sonic Adventure and Shenmue Minecraft, for those who downloaded either beta, if you could find 5 of any of the characters you could submit your results to me here and claim a prize with a chance of winning monthly art features, deviantart subscriptions or even Nintendo club card codes.
That contest is now officially over and sadly not a single person ever entered or submitted any results.

I did have fun however hiding all of these fun easter eggs throughout my maps and it did inspire me to take the idea further. So if you play my maps now, even though the contest is over and all of those missing chao, kiki and bladespinner robots have been removed. I did in their place add a ton of fun easter eggs that I won't dare spoil but am very eager to see who can find them all.
It's nothing too major but throughout both maps you may find hidden chao, secret messages, heck even Sonic characters just casually wandering around the map and exploring the world I created.

I had so much fun doing this that I intend to do the same with my Minecraft World projects as well.
How cool would that be to just be wandering around a virtual Minecraft London or Birmingham and just see Sonic wandering around Piccadilly Circus with the locals, watching a street performer, or spot Tails in Oxford street looking at the latest gadgets, or Cream and her Mother exploring a local park in Shanghai, etc?
I reward those who are willing to go out of their way to explore so feel free to search every nook and cranny of my projects for these fun little easter eggs. You may be shocked at what you can find. ;)

Take care for now and hope you all enjoy the downloads!

I know you'll enjoy this!…

You know David, you and God have a lot in common...
but nah thanks for the link. Seriously though, check out that link I sent you, It's definitely worth your time.

ThePuzzleSolver Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2014
Wow, I'm actually excited for this! 16 extra tracks and a bunch of extra characters for £11. The main game only featured 32!…
TheCrimsonEmo Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Oh wow, thats actually gotta be the first time mario karts ever had any dlc before.
Thats renewed my interest in the game but seriously, does this game have FOUR versions of princess peach in the playable roster and still no Bowser Jr, Petey Piranha or King Boo?
What is going on over there??
ThePuzzleSolver Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2014
This game looks really good! Kind of like Project Gotham but just set America.…
TheCrimsonEmo Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Ohh thats not bad actually? Thats not a pc exclusive though is it?
ThePuzzleSolver Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2014… Good news for you, maybe. I'm getting it for PS4 though, so I've still wasted £30 on costumes either way. I'm actually surprised it doesn't come with at least SOME of the costume packs. Even Ultimate had a few of the original dlc packs included!
TheCrimsonEmo Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Jesus really? Team Tecmo must be among the worst tight fisted bastards in the world.
I mean these fucking dlc clothes cost almost as much as real clothing as it is.
So what your saying is you can only transfer from ps3 to ps4 and xbox 360 to xbox one but it won't cross between microsoft and sony like gtaV's save data will?
In that case would you be better off waiting first to see how the xbox one port compares to the ps4 version?
If they're virtually identical with little to no framerate issues you might be better off getting it for xbox one
ThePuzzleSolver Featured By Owner Sep 3, 2014
But the PS4 has a dedicated button on its controller that instantly takes a 1080p screenshot (or video) of whatever is on screen whenever you want it to. It's like it was made for the Dead or Alive games. ;)
TheCrimsonEmo Featured By Owner Sep 3, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Its a shame the doa games aren't available on PC.
people would mod that into the best hentai game ever made!
ThePuzzleSolver Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2014
Also, this might interest you…
TheCrimsonEmo Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I can't stop thinking about that new saints row IV expansion pack, and I'm willing to bet you can't either XD
I'm probably more hyped for that then I am any upcoming game this year.
I hope its not just a short 3-4 mission DLC pack like the previous packs are.
I'm kinda hoping it'll at least be a 5 hour story campaign or something.
ThePuzzleSolver Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2014
DAMN IT!!!!! We just bought a bunch of costumes for it as well!!!!!!!! You totally called that one!…
TheCrimsonEmo Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
ASIAN CUNTY BOLLOCKS!! I knew those dlc costumes were a complete waste of money!
Fuck man, see what I mean, all these current gen games that are barely 2 years old getting ps4/one re-releases.
We've never had anything like this before.
ThePuzzleSolver Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2014
ThePuzzleSolver Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2014
This pretty much confirms Dex will be in it.…
TheCrimsonEmo Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
When I logged onto xbox live the other day and saw your sig saying new saints row game jan 20th I was like WTF are you talking about!?
What new saints row game!? there isn't a new saints row game, you would of told me about it. FUCK YOU!!!
But nah, seriously you must be so exited. Your two favorite characters in the whole series becoming playable in their own expansion pack
ThePuzzleSolver Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2014
I meant to say "Xbox 360 or PS3" at the end there, not "Xbox 360 or PS4"
ThePuzzleSolver Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2014
On the plus side, the PS4 and Xbox One versions of Saints Row 4 only cost £30 and come with all of the Saints Row 4 dlc including this new expansion pack. It also runs at 1080p and 60fps on PS4, and your custom character from Saints Row 4 carries over into the cutscenes of Gat Out of Hell. Unfortunately, I don't think your character or game saves from the Xbox 360 or PS4 carry over the the Xbox One or PS4 versions. But that's unconfirmed.
TheCrimsonEmo Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I know that your custom character isn't transferrable between the x360 and ps3 versions of the game as they for some reason use completely different databases to store the character data on their servers, but i was kinda hoping they'd at least carry over to the next gen consoles if even the same way GTA V's data is going to carry over.

Ahh, my character isn't that hard to remake if I have to, I could just go into the creation menu and make a note of the stats or something.
ThePuzzleSolver Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2014
How do you feel about it? I'm looking forward to it, but I'll just pretend it's not cannon if sucks. I have a feeling that your character from the first four games will get killed at some point in this expansion pack, and Johnny will also choose to stay in hell as hell's new ruler at the end of the expansion pack.
TheCrimsonEmo Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Its going to be weird because my characters female, being forced to marry satans daughter, but then again that just adds a little more spice to the humour of it all XD
I'm thinking its going to end the same way SRIV did with the boss, johnny and kinzie all teaming up to take down satan and then the boss rules over hell as their new ruler with gat and kinzie by his/her side.
No idea how the other characters will play into this though, I mean its not like they can communicate over the audio through the ship like before.
Either way I'm hyped. I wouldn't be surprised if they somehow managed to work a professor Genki gameshow into this as well with those two announcers somehow working their way into it all.

I'm dying to know how Dane Vogal and Dex will tie into this all though, and hell, maybe Julius and all the other gang leaders we killed will somehow tie into the story as well?

Agghhhh why the fuck do we have to wait until February!? I want it noooowwwwwwwwww!!!
TheCrimsonEmo Featured By Owner Aug 30, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Oh it's an expansion pack, I thought this was a standalone saints row 5.
Not that I'm unhappy one of my favorite games is getting a ps4/one re release but seriously, doesn't this just confirm what I said to you that day?

Why are all these old ps3/x360 games getting re released on ps4/one?
It was NOT like this last gen, there's arguably more hd re releases on these consoles now than actual original IPs
