Weighted Cubes Papercraft by Skele-kitty Weighted Cubes Papercraft by Skele-kitty
I love this game so much, it's such a pity that it makes me motion sick, so I can only play it about 5 minutes at a time and then I have to lay down for about half an hour recovering, lol! THAT'S how much I love this game!!!

I made these both over a period of 3 days, on and off. I actually created an inner cardboard box to overlay the template onto, just for durability, because they are quite large - standing at about 14cm tall.

Admittedly, these are rush jobs - I could have spent much longer on them - so the finish is not as neat as I would normally build.

The Weighted Companion Cube (WCC) template has been around for a while, in fact, I custom made a lidded container out of this template [link] over a year ago, but it got euthanized accidentally.

The Weighted Storage Cube (WSC) I created myself, by Photoshoping the original WCC template, because strangely enough, I couldn't find a decent version of a WSC out in the WWW at all.

If you've ever played the game, you'd know that you don't actually meet the WCC until close to the end of the game. So, rationally speaking, it very strange that so many people are so attached to the WCC and not the trusty WSC.

But then, if you've never played the game, you just wouldn't understand.

You can get the templates for both here:
Weighted Companion Cube: [link]
Weighted Storage Cube: [link]

*EDIT*
Oh, I meant to say that I get a lot of questions about the little pink/blue strips re: how to attach them. This really is the eternal question, because for the life of me, I cannot figure out how the original designer intended them to be attached, even now!

The way I overcame this issue is sort of a cheat: I cut the tabs and the top/bottoms off and glued them ONTO the face, over the four joins. It's not perfect or ideal, but it works.

That issue about the pink and blue lines are resolved in my YouTube tutorial... check it out and please tell me what you think. Though my finished product there was not as clean. www.youtube.com/watch?v=QlK7vZ…
