I’m a big Minecraft fan, but that pretty much consists of me exploring the world, fighting enemies, and generally just adventuring about. When it comes to the crazy stuff that can be created from within Minecraft, I just am not smart enough to do any of it. I just can’t wrap my head around it. Such is the case with this latest video where YouTuber McMakistein has recreated the awesome strategy game Plague Inc. ($0.99) inside of Minecraft. The entire world map is there, and the game works by you sparking off a plague in the country of your choosing and trying to get it to spread everywhere and destroy all of humanity before a cure can be found. Pretty much just like in the regular Plague Inc. There’s even coins to collect and upgrades to buy. Check it out.
As you can see towards the end of the video, McMakistein goes behind the scenes and shows all the complex Redstone machines that drive the Plague Inc. gameplay. This is where my mind boggles. I don’t think I’ll ever be smart enough to create something like that, but I sure do appreciate that there are people out there doing this sort of stuff so I can kick back and enjoy it.
