If a video game has enough of a following to hold a convention, it has definitely reached a certain level of popularity. If my mom has heard of the game, then it has just about reached the pinnacle of video game popularity. Minecraft is one of these games. I don’t play it, but it seems that just about everyone and their mother (pun intended) love it. In the spirit of Halloween, here are some spooky Minecraft mods for all of you creepers.
ZoDDcraft by OmniZodd ZoDDcraft is a customized texture pack created by OmniZodd for his own enjoyment. The texture pack is designed to give the world of Minecraft a darker and more Gothic feel. OmniZodd has definitely gotten into the spirit of Halloween and provides frequent updates for his awesome texture pack. For instance, he plans to release Lovecraftian-themed villagers in the near future. Keep an eye on this mod as it is constantly improving.
Lovecraft by TROGRAFX This mod, by TROGRAFX, is inspired by the xenophobic writings of the infamous H.P. Lovecraft. Mobs have been altered to create a more Lovecraftian feel, and the world textures are much darker and more mysterious. If you find yourself drawn to the tentacle deity Cthulhu and the other Elder Gods, this may be the mod for you!
HD Silent Hill Texture Pack by RedXuchilbara If you find Minecraft to be positively droll and unscary, some Silent Hill textures might just fix your problem! This texture pack will add Silent Hill nurses, bloody cows, mine carts, and other Silent Hill goodies! On a super basic level, most everything has a significantly more disturbing face…or fleshy mass instead of a face, whatever.
Deadcraft by Midnight_Wombat Dead Space + Minecraft = Deadcraft. If math were this easy, I wouldn’t have gotten failing grades in high school. If you keep up with my blogs, you know that I more or less refuse to play Dead Space. I am sorry, but that crap is just too freaking scary. I’ve watched the beginning of Dead Space 2, and I swear to you I would probably not be able to even pass that. At any rate, this texture pack adds creepy Dead Space-esque containment rooms and other bloody funsies to Minecraft. Midnight_Wombat’s pack is both cute and disturbing, which is pretty awesome if you ask me!
Creepycraft by Gotheredsox CreepyCraft is just what it sounds like – a grouping of a bunch of miscellaneous horror things thrown into Minecraft. This pack allows you to mine with murder weapons (admittedly a pickaxe could probably be used as a murder weapon), traipse through guts, and partake in a slew of other creepy if not marginally gross activities. Essentially, this is the perfect Halloween makeover for Minecraft.
