Designer shows what a wooden crate from Boxxle could look like in real life.

Boxxle, also known as Soukoban in Japan, was a popular 16-bit game created for the Nintendo Gameboy. Since then, variations of the box-pushing puzzle game have been released on different platforms, including the iPhone, and Android tablets. The aim of the game is to strategically push wooden crates into certain positions. Push the boxes in the wrong order or direction, and you will find your character stuck on a game level.

Artist Conall McAteer has transformed the game icon in Boxxel into a real-life artwork. He has created an actual pixellated sculpture of the wooden boxes found in Boxxle for his latest project titled, “Crate.”
