Have you ever wondered what Genshin Impact would look like in a pixelated 2D version? Well, wonder no more! An Android user has taken on the task of creating a 2D rendition of this popular game. However, it appears that the project has been abandoned. In this blog post, we’ll delve into the visual charm of this Genshin Impact 2D game, discuss an unexpected crossover, and contemplate the possibility of an official 2D version being launched.
The Visual Charm of Genshin Impact 2D
Take a moment to watch the gameplay footage of the 2D Genshin Impact game below. Despite its pixelated nature, the visuals of this game are undeniably stunning. The character models, animations, and overall style bear a striking resemblance to another beloved game called Little Witch in the Woods. Little Witch in the Woods is a cozy game where players assume the role of a witch named Ellie. The connection between these two games raises intriguing questions about their development.
It is evident that the creator of the 2D Genshin Impact project poured their heart and soul into this endeavor. The city of Mondstadt has been faithfully replicated, complete with familiar landmarks such as Katheryne’s presence at the Adventurer’s Guild, Angel Share’s Tavern, and the Good Hunter with Sara attending to customers. While exploring the outdoors, players encounter pixelated versions of iconic Genshin Impact creatures like Hilichurls, pesky Ruin Guards, and helpful waypoints.
The attention to detail in this project is commendable. Even in the brief gameplay footage, beloved Genshin Impact characters such as Venti, Hu Tao, Paimon, and Amber make appearances with their intricately designed portraits. The dialogue boxes also capture the unique flair of Genshin Impact, further adding to the remarkable craftsmanship of this 2D adaptation.
Upon witnessing the creativity and dedication behind the 2D Genshin Impact project, it’s difficult not to ponder the possibility of an official 2D version being released. Imagine a humble story-driven RPG or a life simulator set in the enchanting world of Genshin Impact, all in a simplified art style. It would be a fascinating endeavor for the developers at HoYoverse to adapt their acclaimed 3D open-world title into a new and refreshing gaming experience.
