The town of Newoak has pushed the limits of Minecraftia's technologies! Professor Vesanus, a honored citizen of Newoak, has developed and constructed devices through redstone circuitry that no Minecraftians have even dreamed of! Newoak was thriving with business and moral was high!
This happiness unfortunately would not last though... One fateful day Vesanus was reported with a strange unknown sickness that he claimed would be fatal. A mere week later, the professor was found dead, laying in bed at his home, a painless death it appeared.
Vesanus' death seemed legitimate to most the townsfolk for awhile, until rumors sprouted up, and became out of control. Many villagers claimed Vesanus had changed how acted dramatically when he thought others were not looking, and that he appeared to be perfectly healthy. Then the technology around town started to miss fundamental pieces, and strange occurrences started being reported in the town crypt where Vesanus' tomb resides. The Newoak Town Council had enough and decided to take action.
The Newoak Council has begun an investigation and seeks worthy adventurers willing to push themselves to the limits in order to return the town to it's former prosperity!
How serious of a matter could this really be?
How did Vesanus create such complex redstone devices?
Why would Vesanus fake his death?
What is the true fate of Vesanus?
What sort of secrets may lie beyond your path?
What dangers could you face in order to save Newoak?
Find out Spring 2012
"Power of the Void" is an upcoming Adventure/Puzzle map planned to involve a rich story with complex puzzles never before seen to a mod-less Minecraft. This will be the first Minecraft map that I have ever decided to make
for the community. In the past, I mostly enjoyed the game in it's vanilla form and on survival mode. I am, though, a big fan of the Minecraft community, my ideas are no doubt inspired by the community's ideas. If it wasn't for the community, my map would be in a much different shape.
This post is simply a "Teaser Thread" I am creating, involving sneak peak screenshots and videos of small
secrets/puzzles in the map! Enjoy!
Ha, nice. I actually went through a handful of title ideas before sticking to this one, I just thought was a good unknown, interesting, yet simple title, and directly related to the main plot points. I also did do a quick search of it online to make sure it wasn't already used for a map, because who knew. Turns out it thankfully was not.
I'm not a fan of making specific release dates because I know they can be pushed back a lot due to complications, which can result in frustration/possible anger by Minecraft players.
So, as of now, the release is just "Spring 2012." I've said a few times to people that I'm "aiming" for sometime in March, but there's no promises. With how busy I have been with other things lately (Full-time Job mostly), I'm thinking April right now.
I'll only have a specific release date when I think there's only about a week or two left of testing/perfecting the map.
Since I don't have a deadline, I can almost assure that there will be absolutely no bugs and exploits upon release.
