STM - Save the Midgets is an upcoming Minecraft adventure map. The focus of the map is exploration, adventure, and an epic storyline quest. STM aims to parody the recent trend of CTM (Complete the Monument) adventure maps by replacing the wool with "midgets", which are basically also wool. This map will be adventure mode, meaning that fans of CTM's hardcore survival gameplay will be put outside of their comfort zone, which is good.
STM is a story about a heroic adventurer who has conquered many vicious foes and completed devious challenges (actual playing of other adventure maps not required) and is now tasked with an odd job by a mysterious character: save midgets. So naturally your heroic avatar character goes out to save the midgets, but not without some platforming, adventure, exploration, achievements, easter eggs, references, puzzles, redstone, cake, and walking. Lots and lots and lots and lots and lots of walking. Lots.
The purpose of this thread is currently to track my progress throughout the construction and development of the STM adventure map. The map's quirky nature and off-color humor render it rather crude compared to "state-of-the-art" maps by Sethbling or Hypixel, but part of its charm is that it flaunts this peculiar style with no regrets. If you're looking for some very casual Minecrafting, you can expect hours of fun out of Save the Midgets.
My goals for this project:
Provide 5+ hours of gameplay.
Create 20 levels of adventure.
Release a proof of concept before polishing.
Track progress accurately through screenshots and listings.
