BlockWork's awesome Deep Sea Planet Minecraft contest entry
While the entry period is over for Planet Minecraft's contest, Underwater Wonderland, an intricate entry called Deep Sea stood out amongst them all. Having over 10 contributors, BlockWorks created a world that even the little mermaid would love to live in.
About the Deep Sea Build
Bringing together a mesh of Deep Sea and Deep Space, the contributors behind BlockWorks show that although Space is man's final frontier, the Ocean is also filled with wonders that Steve has yet to come across.
By following the rules and guidelines set forth by Planet Minecraft, they were able to create this wonderland by using a variety of blocks, default texture pack, and designing this especially for the contest.
Although the contest didn't require a storyline to be written for the submissions, BlockWorks went above and beyond, and gave their Deep Sea world a bit of Lore.
"From the depths of the never-ending ocean, from that fathomless world of infinite mystery and unearthly beauty which man has yet to discover:
As Steve descended into the ocean depths, he found himself surrounded by an array of alien colours and shapes. There were creatures he never could have imagined, suited more to the realm of outer space than to that of the ocean.
Then, as he finally reached the sea bed, he discovered a vast complex nestled amongst the coral reefs. Enormous machines and contraptions appeared to be studying a variety of alien objects seemingly of their own accord while iridescent lifeforms swam around the strange rocks emitting a radiant glow.
The facility had been built around these forms, studying them in the hope of harnessing their power.
Who were the ones that built it and where had they gone..?"

The Winners of the Contest
While the Planet Minecraft contest still has 4 days left for the judges to calculate the finalists, I'll be keeping my eyes open for the results to announce when the opportunity arises. I do hope BlockWork's Deep Sea makes it to the top three; they've done a wonderful spin on the theme Underwater Wonderland, and I think it's amazing.
