"You awaken in a small room. Strange messages are written on the wall. Only one thought is on your mind.
Escapecraft is a room-escape puzzle game, Minecraft-style! Decipher clues, solve riddles, exploit the idiosyncratic physics of everyone's favorite game!
This is a "teaser" to gauge the communities interest. Game includes a dozen levels, and should require no more than 2 hours of game play (assuming you don't die and have to start over repeatedly). If you know all the answers to the puzzles, you can rush through in about 20 minutes.
Successful completion of the game requires a thorough knowledge of the mechanics of Minecraft (redstone, water, etc). Familiarity with the game's history will help you understand some of the jokes, but is not strictly required. Fair warning - the later levels may be very difficult.
- Don't break blocks unless you place them.
- Difficulty must be set to Normal or Hard
- No cheats
There are two download links. The first will take you to a Paypal page, where you pay $0.50 and get the game. The second download link below will take you to an advertisement, followed by the download page.
After a couple requests, I've decided to add an option for you all to donate. I'm a grad student at an expensive private university who pays for school by working 40 hours a week at the local bowling alley making minimum wage. In all honesty, making this little mod has been the most fun I've had in months. Every $7 I get through this is an hour I don't have to spend disinfecting shoes and can therefore spend making cool stuff for you (like new levels). If you have enjoyed this, drop a dollar in the tip jar.
- Download file and unzip to your minecraft folder (on Windows 7, go to C: -> Users -> *USERNAME* -> AppData -> Roaming -> .minecraft -> saves )
- Rename folder "World#" (where '#' is a number 1-5). If you already have 5 worlds, you will need to rename one of the existing save folders.
- I recommend creating a additional backup folder, in the all-too-likely event of your death.
- Despite my best efforts, the spawn location is in the wrong place. If you die, its game over. (I would appreciate someone fixing this!)
- Since there is no manual save feature in Minecraft, if you die you must manually reinstall Escapecraft and start over.
- Occassionally, a mob will spawn in unintended locations (likely due to the Halloween Update).
An iron door can only be opened with redstone, a switch, a pressure plate or...
No buttons or switches, so you'll need a way to open the door yourself...
Check the floor... carefully...
Now what can you make with 2 cobble, coal and...
Again, check the floor. Carefully
What can you make with 3 iron? What do you need to make it? How can that help you get past lava?
Water is your friend
You need LOTS of water...
Now do the previous room in reverse.
You need to setup 2 equations - x + y = 10 and x^2 + y^2 = 29*2
Then solve for x in the first equation, and insert it into the second
(10-y)^2 + y^2 = 58
The answer is 3 and 7... you cheater
Well, there are a lot of paintings... look at them and AROUND them.
What does a button to?
Where might the door be?
If you are still stuck, there are 3 doors in this room. 2 are necessary to move on, the other is bonus.
I used glass for a reason. Look through carefully. Oh, and you CAN activate TNT, that's not cheating.
When TNT is activated, it falls and explodes. But that will blow a hole in the floor beneath you! Unless...
Water prevents TNT from damaging things. Its handy that way.
No easy way to explain this - follow the redstone!
2 paths lead to TNT. Don't connect those.
I gave you 2 redstone for a reason... Might need to activate 2 paths...
Be VERY careful in this room - that's a LOT of TNT
You need to know which path to travel. Look carefully in the previous room...
Try looking at the ceiling...
No special tricks here - you need to fight your way through! Bonus items from previous rooms will prove VERY helpful here.
Dig dig dig... but not TOO far. Go slow.
- Fixed room 9. Should have fewer random spawns and goofy TNT drops.
My Friend and I actually did a playthrough of this map (As well as the other two which aren't posted on Youtube yet) And I was wondering if anyone wanted to take a look, and let us know what you think, thank you for your time
Great, but room 11 was glichy. I set off the tnt, but ran out of the room before it could kill me. Then, I used the flint and steel to blow up redstone torches in the previous room. Finaly I was able to power the iron door with the torch from underneath, using a platform made ot of the leftover wooden planks from earlier. Just thought you should know if you ever update the map.
i have some hard worked maps and i need you to check my maps or at least my page leave feedback, i use mcedit and mods for making these maps it takes a good week to make 1 of my maps so its a good map i need more hype so if you can check my forum just for 1 second that would make my day
