Let’s put Mine back to Minecraft as you are stranded deep underground with seemingly no hope of seeing the sky again in this awesome Minecraft map for version 1.8.
Created by danaphanous and his team known as “OathBrothers”, this map is a survival themed map with an engaging story and challenging scenarios.
In this map, you (and your friends) will play as the regular miner on a large mining company where life is repetitive but otherwise okay. One day, the group of surveyors and researchers found an anomaly in the world’s bedrock leading towards the layers below.
A team of miners, including you, were chosen to explore and investigate this new discovery and upon the start of the investigation an earthquake suddenly collapsed the platform, sending you and your team down to the depths below.
When you woke up, you find yourself underneath the bedrock layers – on to the ground that have never seen the light of day and was never touched by any humans for hundreds of generations. The darkness cover this place and creatures of unexplainable origins are its denizens. How long can you survive? Is there even a hope to see the sunrise?
The challenge is to live, play, and prosper under the ground and without sunlight. Food will be scarce and monsters will continually spawn. The goal of this map is to ultimately rescue yourself and emerge back into the surface.
For added gameplay and replay value, a list of challenges are set for players to do.

After I played through this map, I find it amazing, challenging, and fun (in the sense that it is challenging). The maps are amazing and well detailed, and the story/map flow was well thought off. I highly recommend survival players and role players to try out this map. It is also more fun to play it with a friend – but not so many as you might lack the food. 🙂
