Even though there is some fighting in Minecraft, some fans turn it into a version of the dystopian horror franchise.
The success of Minecraft can be summed up by the fact that it can be played over and over again and that the way it works lets players be as creative as they want. Some people might think of it as a video game that’s better for kids, but Mojang’s open-world sandbox game is popular with people of all ages. It can also be a peaceful time, and even though there is some violence, most people wouldn’t call it extreme. Until these people came along, that is.
PCGamesN noticed that YouTuber Forge Labs and a bunch of other people have been taking part in a Minecraft event that turns the normally relaxing game into a nightmare of the future. The players have basically made their own version of The Purge, where all crimes, including murder, are legal for one night, just like in the movies and TV shows. At the beginning of the video, everyone has seven days to get ready for the event. During this time, no one can kill another player, and if someone died during the first seven days, they would lose one heart of health for good.
It’s an unusual way to play a game that is often thought to be one of the most relaxing. For those who don’t know, The Purge, like Insidious and Paranormal Activity, is a Blumhouse horror movie. The first movie came out in 2013 and was met with mixed reviews. Since then, it has led to a number of sequels, including a sixth one that hasn’t been named yet, as well as a TV show that ran for two seasons before being canceled. Given how violent this franchise is, you might think it would be the exact opposite of something like Minecraft. However, Forge Labs and others have turned it into a fun event.
When it comes to new or interesting projects, fans are always on the lookout for ways to push themselves. One Minecraft player, for example, is mining a whole map’s worth of the world. They have been digging up every block, right down to the bedrock, for the past five years. By September, they expect to have cleared about 47 million blocks. After that, you’ll go to the Nether and End worlds.
The 1.19.20 update for the Bedrock Edition shows that Mojang isn’t slowing down when it comes to taking care of its very profitable asset. The game has been going for well over a decade, and fans are working on a wide range of projects, some of which are pretty violent. It looks like Minecraft will stay in the spotlight for a long time to come.
