I thought it would be fun to create a Lovecraftian world in Minecraft. Our first project is Innsmouth, and it’s coming along nicely! (See the screenshots below.)
But that’s just the beginning. We’re going to recreate the Mountains of Madness, R’lyeh, and many more places and scenes from Lovecraft’s stories.
I’ll post progress pictures periodically here at the website and at the eZine Facebook page. If you want to stay in the loop on this project, the best thing to do is to sign up for email notifications on the top right side of this page, LIKE Lovecraft eZine on Facebook, and follow me on Twitter.
What’s it all for? Why are we doing it? Because it’s fun!
I’ll allow people in to explore soon. Eventually, it won’t just be for exploration — there will be games as well.
Special thanks to Harlan Guthrie, James Begley, and Brandon Skinner for their hard work on this project so far. You guys rock.
