Map Info

In this adventure map, you play as Ethan Odell, an ordinary office worker whose life is turned upside down when he finds that his house has caught on fire. Seek to uncover the truth behind this tragedy as you experience Minecraft in a whole new way. This unique map is played in a 2.5D style, where you move Ethan around the scene and interact with characters and objects. For more details, use the Tutorial inside the map at the starting area.


  • This map is Single-Player only, and will not work correctly with multiple players.
  • There is a Walkthrough file in the Info folder.
  • If your character gets stuck in a scene and unable to exit to another area, return to the starting area by removing the diamond boots from your feet, then press the Start button again.
  • For those who wish to understand the character control mechanism, there is a zip file in the Info folder that contains a small concept world with the basic commands necessary to control a character.

  • This map was created for Minecraft version 1.9 and will not work with earlier versions, and may not work with future versions.
  • Options...Video Settings...Render Distance must be at least 4 chunks, but it is recommended to set it to at least 8.
  • Options...FOV must be at least Normal. Smaller displays need a larger FOV for this map.
  • Mouse movement is not allowed when you are not in the starting area. If this becomes an issue, turn the mouse sensitivity all the way down in Options...Controls...Sensitivity.
  • If you experience lag, try turning off Smooth Lighting and setting Graphics to Fast in Options...Video Settings.
  • Please do NOT craft items in your inventory, as you will lose the important items that you need to complete the map.

If you are unable to defeat an enemy, which is causing you to not progress through the map, type the code below in your chat box (press T by default to open the chat box) when you reach the scene with the enemy: /scoreboard players set @e[name=Progress] targetHealth 0

Update v1.1:
Fixed a point in the map that caused the character to fall through the floor at the Burial Tomb scene.

-2 mrcreepycreeper i don't yet have YouTube channel but i did planned to have this map is a bit buggy the rat is unkillable so i tried the DIDN'T WORKED so i tried to go and fix the command blocks... it probably messed the command blocks out and then in the part with the rabbit PRAM didn't worked i think you need to do a bit of fixing for the hostile creatures and then it will be a very very very good map

+1 smpmike23 BlackHaggoth & shingori - Another player had the same issue and stated that the fix was to turn off Optifine, or any mods, and just use plain vanilla Minecraft...

+1 BlackHaggoth The controls are a bit weird for me. Ethan doesn't walk straight. I'll explain. Pretend there is North East South West. W key=North, D key=East, etc. When I press D, Ethan does North East. When I press W, Ethan goes North South. Is there a way to fix this?

2016-04-20 17:27

-1 shingori I just started playing and I'm moving diagonally in a strange way, is this intentional? If it isn't, how do I fix it?

+2 Adam Quoting Digidestined:
Yeah, the medpack doesnt seem to work for me. Im at the tunnel rat and I can't kill it because I cant heal. I have the diamond maul and I am spam clicking, but it keeps killing me.

You need to left-click the med-pack while you have the pack in your hand.
