This is Snikkle's first machinima, which makes it an astounding success both in terms of content and form. The video uses mostly in-game footage to tell its tale but it does so in a creative, animated way. It is definitely not just two people standing around. The story itself is sweet and effective. Wherez mah chicky is a fantastic first video.

What's the story? Well, it's pretty simple. A common chicken has gone missing, having been temped by the allure of Darkmoon Island. While that might sound like a silly concept, take the time to watch the video. It goes from silly to incredibly sweet. Great job, Snikkle!
