Great treat; create your digital museum of classic 3D environments

Similar to how one can explore the world through Google Maps, Noclip is made from the same elements from the games such as Kingdom Hearts, Dark Souls, and Pokemon Platinum.

Noclip.website is an online digital video game museum that lets everyone explore the environments, maps, or scenarios of some classic 3D games from Wii, GameCube, Nintendo DS, 3DS, N64, and more.

Similar to how one can explore the world through Google Maps, Noclip is made from the same elements from the games such as Kingdom Hearts, Dark Souls, and Pokemon Platinum.

The creator, JasperRLZ, says Noclip was created as a “celebration of video game level design and art.”

With a team of contributors, they can extract data from the games and piece them back together to make them freely explorable and slightly interactive.

Game environment takes the player in otherworlds and immerses them in the game to make them feel like they’re actually the character.

Noclip wants site visitors to “deepen their appreciation” for the games.

Jasper was interviewed by Kotaku in 2019 about the project where he said, “My vision is that every game on the site is as accurate as I can make it. I want to let the work by these artists shine.”

By exploring the different levels of the game, viewers can see the care and workmanship of the designers and developers into placing complex set pieces, secret passages, details, and challenges into the game environment.

There are also interesting design choices to be explored. You can see where textures and details have been sacrificed to meet the game’s graphical and performance targets due to the limited hardware capabilities of the early consoles.

However, at a time when Nintendo is actively taking down emulators, pirated games, and any fan projects that use their assets, Noclip runs the risk of being hunted down.

To this, Jasper explains that they are not copying or competing with the game developers and companies citing that Noclip.website is a museum.

“I have enormous respect for the developers and dev teams and if I received a take-down request, I would honor it,” he added.

He goes on to decline donations and encourage people to buy some games instead.

With the pandemic threatening museums, it might not be a bad investment for companies to create digital museums like Noclip did for classic video games. (HD)
