Professional Builders Have Created Huge City In Minecraft

A team of professional Minecraft builders have poured endless hours into making what could be one of the most glorious in-game creations of all time. The team of pros, named Varuna, tackled a full recreation of the Labyrinth City of Orario from the DanMachi anime within the Mojang game, and the results are pretty darn jaw-dropping.

Each of the buildings features a fully decorated interior, with the whole shebang taking approximately two whole months of 12-hour-long workdays [via Eurogamer]. The Labyrinth City isn’t the only build the team has worked on though, and you can check out their full back catalog of creations on their website here.

The team says: “Varuna is a group of talented architects, designers and artists who work within the popular video game Minecraft to create custom worlds or ‘builds’ for both private clients and the public,

“Our Minecraft builds range from recreations of real-life locations to completely fantasy worlds imagined and built by the builders and members of Varuna. We strive to create builds that inspire awe and joy within people. Our builds are often used in Minecraft servers as sets for other mini-games within Minecraft.”

Sadly, this particular Minecraft build isn’t open to the public, as it was commissioned by a private client. However, we can all enjoy these wonderful screenshots and dream of its brilliance.

In related news, innovation company AKQA has created a free-to-play Minecraft map to teach players the importance of social distancing.

The map, entitled Blockdown Simulator, is free to download (on PC at least) and allows you to play as either a viewer or a nurse as you employ best practice to stop the spread of a virus.

Blockdown Simulator is described as follows: “Blockdown Simulator was made to teach people about the effective strategy of staying at home during a pandemic. It’s a map created by the design and innovation company AKQA, to support the United Nations Development Programme and Heart17 for #TomorrowTogether (an initiative that Mojang supports), in which a village is exposed to highly infectious Zombie Villagers.

“As its name suggests, it’s a simulator designed to educate players about the impact of a pandemic, its effects on healthcare services, and how various social measures can mitigate it.”
