Autcraft: Minecraft Helps Children with Autism Make New Friends
Minecraft is a game beloved by many. The online building game’s ability to entertain while facilitating players to connect with each other attracts all walks of life, not least children with autism. Sadly, despite enjoying the game, many of these children often get bullied by other players.Knowing their predicaments, Stuart Duncan decided to create a special platform for them. Himself familiar with autism, Duncan set up an invite-only version of Minecraft, called Autcraft, exclusively for children with autism and their families. Within days of launching, the server received hundreds of requests to join. Now it boasts nearly 7000 members, with a team of admin to manage the growing users. In Autcraft, the children can freely enjoy the experience of Minecraft - using blocks of materials to build whatever they can think of - without the stress of dealing with physical contacts, something that is distressing for children with autism. The game gives them a platform to just express themselves, unbothered by the pressure of the real world.#Minecraft #Autcraft #autism #StuartDuncan
The Lost Kingdom: An Incredible Minecraft World Built Inside a Block
The Minecraft building community never fails to amaze us with its countless creations and feats of creativity. In a similar vein, Reddit user @Voenixx_ reveals ‘The Lost Kingdom’, an underwater world that is like nothing we’ve ever seen. Aside from being an amazing build, it’s also an astonishing piece of art that Minecraft builders create by exporting block data from the game and touching it up using 3D visual effects tools such as Blender. While it isn’t available to download and import to our own Minecraft games, the best we can do is gaze at Voenixx_’s photo and marvel at all its glorious detail.
