A Minecraft player uses the game’s pumpkins to make a real-life Jack O’Lantern.

With October 31 quickly approaching, a ghoulishly festive Minecraft player has carved a jack-o’-lantern modeled after those found in the game. Since then, the player has shared their creation on social , demonstrating that Minecraft fans continue to find ways to showcase their talents to the world.

Since its release in 2011, Minecraft has become a worldwide phenomenon on multiple platforms, with players and developers demonstrating exceptional longevity and creativity. On November 18, the game will celebrate its eleventh anniversary, exactly one month after the announcement of upcoming Patch 1.20 features at Minecraft Live 2022.

With less than a week until Halloween, Reddit user cube0567 posted their final pumpkin carving. The post has thus far received over 429 upvotes. While this project likely did not require 7000 hours of labor like some other Minecraft creations, the inventive Redditor paid close attention to detail as the carving took shape. After removing the gourd’s stem, cube0567 removed the pumpkin’s seeds and pulp, carved the pumpkin’s face, and completed the project by lighting it with a candle. The Reddit user stated in the comments that this particular carving is simple and can be done by anyone.

In Minecraft, it should not be difficult for players to find their own pumpkins. Pumpkins generally spawn in extreme hills biomes and plains biomes, with the only requirements being a grassy patch below the pumpkin and some air free of other plants, such as flowers or grass, above it. As for actual pumpkins, prospective carvers may draw inspiration from a variety of pumpkins themed after video games if they so choose. A week until Halloween, those who dare to scare will find ghoulish treats and spooky terrors.

What is not a Halloween trick is Minecraft’s continued success to this day. Following the departure of the game’s original creator, Markus “Notch” Persson, Microsoft acquired Mojang Studios for $2.5 billion in November 2014. Microsoft appeared to have paid a considerable amount for the studio and IP at the time, which raised eyebrows. In comparison to the ongoing acquisition talks between Microsoft and Activision Blizzard, Mojang’s price tag seems minuscule. The latter is estimated to be worth $68.7 billion, which is more than 27 times what Microsoft paid for Mojang. Whether the transaction is finalized or not, one thing is certain. Microsoft, Minecraft, and the future of players and game developers offer limitless opportunities.
