This past week my girlfriend has been sick with a pretty nasty cold. She is the type of person who enjoys being outside and feeling the warmth of the sun on her face. This week was also the first week she had off for work in quite a while. Suffice it to say that she was not thrilled.
After making her soup and letting her rest, I attacked her with the idea of going outside…virtually. Now, she is no stranger to Minecraft so she was very welcoming of the idea. She even came up with the idea of recreating a house in Minecraft. She found a picture of a beautiful house on twitter and we decided to get to work immediately.
Now, we could have been faithful to the color in the picture but hey, we’re playing a video game where you can make something out of almost anything. So we decided to make an underwater castle inspired design of that house.
Here is the semi complete version of the house. We spent a couple of hours building it until we became tuckered out.
So if you’re ever sick and wanting to travel somewhere new, why not take yourself to a virtual world? It also sounds like someone could have used one of my other ideas.
