If there’s one thing that keeps a game relevant and players come back for more, it’s regular updates, and Minecraft is no exception. After 10 years, the game is still going strong, and as a testament to that, Minecraft: The Exhibition is launching its world travel exhibit at the Liberal Science Center starting Friday, 18th. February.
The exhibit was created to mark the 10th anniversary of the release of the video game Minecraft, which took over four years to build and includes more than 6,000 square feet of scenes, patterns, colors, textures, and environments. School inspired by the game.
The exhibit will have a day-to-night cycle, just like in the game, and there will be 15 life-size characters in the game, known as “mobs”. These include Boom Creeper, Steve, Enderman and Zombie.
What differentiates Minecraft from traditional games is that it doesn’t have a plot or goal. You just build and go on the adventure. From villages to structures, players have a rich world with resources they can use to create anything. It is one of the best-selling video games in history with over 140 million monthly active players across 22 platforms.
The franchise continues to receive updates and new games like Minecraft: Education Edition and Minecraft Rug
“What I love about Minecraft is that it has inspired a generation of creative thinkers and taught engineering, chemistry, computer science, and other math and science related skills. , as well as collaboration and community building,” said Paul Hoffman, Liberty Science President and CEO of the Center, in a press release. “We are delighted to be the first stop on the exhibition’s world tour, and we invite fans and newcomers alike to join us in celebrating the international community. and the popularity of the game — while also getting a bit of a STEM education in the process.”
Those who haven’t learned Minecraft will have the opportunity to do so with game stations that will be located throughout the exhibit, along with videos showing time-lapse builds and veteran players working to get inspiration. Visitors will also be able to watch films that give an in-depth look at Minecraft’s history, including interviews with game developers, the creative team, and notable Minecraft players.
A crafting table will also be available, where visitors can use bricks representing materials from the game such as wood, iron, and obsidian, and create their own objects and tools.
The exhibition was designed in collaboration between Seattle’s Museum of Pop Culture and Swedish game developer, Mojang. The exhibition runs until September 28, and the Liberal Sciences Center is the first stop of a several-year round-the-world tour.
