Ever since the SNES game Donkey Kong Country, Nintendo’s big ape has lived in a wooden house up in the trees. Inspired by a fan request, builder Studson Studio made a model of the treehouse, incorporating twigs, dirt, and rocks he found outside to add to the authenticity. The tiny bananas are a nice touch.
Awesome Donkey Kong
“It all started with Miyamoto seeing ‘King Kong’ and saying, ‘Hey, let’s just do that!'” While we already know the real reason his name is “Donkey,” we still enjoyed Smosh Games‘ parody of Nintendo’s big lug of an ape, and his rise to fame from his early 8-bit arcade days.
