Minecraft opens the doors to a fascinating journey, accompanying the player to discover the beauty of the Basilicata Region. The journey starts from the uncontaminated beaches overlooking the Ionian Sea, in a modern seaside town that hosts a young tourist, but that soon turns out to be an adventure full of twists and turns.
We at Maker Camp, specialized in the use of video games as educational tools in Italian schools and museums, and in collaboration with the Agenzia di Promozione Territoriale di Basilicata, announce the release of the Minecraft map “Metapontum” developed with the incredible technical support of Brian ‘Cleverlike’ Dickman: the map is freely downloadable, playable and is available both in the Bedrock and in the Education Edition version accessible from the above links.
From the clear beaches of Metapontum beach, the protagonist of the map finds himself, regrettably, visiting the most important places of Magna Grecia in a succession of challenges, fights and missions to solve, win and complete.
In a remote village Epeius is waiting for us, a skilled carpenter, who became legendary for having built the greatest deception in history: the Trojan Horse.
In another beach have instead just landed, from two large warships, many Greek soldiers who shout their presence, ready to fight and stop the expansionist aims of the Romans. A small re-edition of the Battle of Heraclea, in which even our hero will have to give his contribution to history, fortunately receiving from a Roman gladiator a super sword with which to face the invasion in progress.
Pythagoras and his famous Theorem introduce the player to a new mission, linked to the discovery – attributed to the philosopher – that the sound of a vibrating string varies with its length.
The ancient agricultural vocation of the Basilicata Region is recalled by the presence of a farmer in need of our help: we just have to try to drive the huge harvester and follow its directions, as already transcribed centuries ago on the Tables of Heraclea.
Finally, inside a WWF oasis, the player must try to bring back to freedom, reaching the beaches of Metaponto lido, a turtle that has been patiently cared for.
