upcoming sequel to MineCraft – UnderMineCraft

did you all hear about the sequel to minecraft?

It’s called UnderMineCraft.

You join a leadership team that as a team is supposed to build a kingdom, grow that kingdom, and then protect that whole world from evil entities bent on destroying anything good.

You will have the same enemies.

You’ll have cave spiders,
creepers,
blazes,
magna cubes,
skeletons in the closet,
slime,
wolves (although they will often times where sheepskin)
and iron golems…

They are all out to get you, carve up your kingdom, and take away your subjects to dark dungeons in the middle of the earth.

You work, mostly individually, trying to destroy the team from the inside out! You know you have won when the world is destroyed, your teammates are dead, but you get credit for trying really to be the leader! It’s like king of the mountain. If you aren’t the leader, no one else is safe.

You will build walls around yourself, around others, and make sure no one can get past them. You can construct hospitals too! Yup, in the sequel you will be able to construct real working hospitals to take care of the wounded escaping other UnderMineCraft worlds, but unfortunately, due to a glitch in the system, you automatically make the wounds worse. This becomes a benefit, really, because you get to know their weaknesses and use it against them!

While there are rules, you really get to write them yourself. I mean, there was a book, but it is outdated and honestly, you learn so much playing the game yourself, you can rewrite the code of the game’s maker.

I can’t wait to see this game hit the iOS.
