Starcraft: Final Metamorphosis

There are some good videos on the internet, and then there are mind-blowingly amazing videos on the internet that have been put together by a select few. Chris “Freespace” Ciocotisan has worked in collaboration with Starcraft Legacy on a cinematic that would make whole animation companies blush.

This 7 minute and 30 second long video is a work made out of love and fanaticism, and it is b-e-a-utiful. It seems that there are no small details that went overlooked, and they wanted to keep you up to speed with what’s going on, so your mission briefing is thus:

For four months, the bloodiest battles of the modern era raged across the heavens and upon the scarred planets of the Koprulu Sector. In October of the year 2500, the Brood War ended abruptly. Kerrigan, the self-styled Queen of Blades, had risen from the ashes of her former Terran form, discarded upon the ruins of Tarsonis, and embraced her birthright as the undisputed ruler of the Zerg Swarm. Freed by the Overmind from the constraints imposed by her neural implant and the morality of her humanity, Kerrigan became so much more. After the Overmind’s invasion of Aiur and untimely death, Kerrigan at last embodied the will of the Swarm and assumed her place as sole ruler of the infinite host.

After her ascension, Kerrigan directed the full fury of the Swarm upon her enemies. The Zerg relentlessly bore down upon those that sought to hinder the Queen of Blades. Yet defiantly, even casually, she brushed aside the combined might of the determined Terran and the mighty Protoss.

However, the success of her campaign was not without obstacles. While she inevitably rose to power, other ancient, powerful forces were awakening and lessons had yet to be learned.

The following is a brief record of events that occurred, in no particular order, both before and during the events of the Brood War, the story of Kerrigan’s rise to power.

For more amazing works, go to the StarCraft Legacy site. You do have to wonder why these people aren’t already working for Blizzard, but in the meantime, let’s just sit back and enjoy the product of 16 months of hard work, eh?
