A New Way to do Survival Minecraft Guides
When looking for inspiration and new ideas on YouTube, it’s extremely hard to find something unique.
Every day I have to dig further into the depths of my imagination and creativity. No-one likes “reboots” and “same same” type content across the platform, but avoiding this is harder than it may appear!
Sometimes, creating a different approach to something that is out there, can breathe new life into an old beast.
Survival Minecraft guides are one such thing!
For me, and I suspect for many of you too, Survival Minecraft is the heartbeat of the game.
It was there first.
It was the format that pulled me into a blocky world and got me addicted to placing blocks and bashing mobs. Creative Minecraft will always be very close to my heart. It’s where I can truly let my mind wander. However, I never forget that Survival is where it all started.
With Avomancia AND AlphaCraft already very active on the channel I didn’t want to just knock out a third survival series, without giving it some interesting twist.
So what do I do when I want to get a new idea off the ground, but I’m not quite sure how to do it?
I ask friends who have similar experience but a different perspective.
THAT is where Frilioth comes in.
Fril and I often bounce ideas around and this was no exception. In fact, it was that very bouncy act that led us to our lightbulb.
Do a Solo Survival Guide, but NOT SOLO?!?
In Minecraft 1.14 Village & Pillage
How about a Manual to Survival Minecraft from two different perspectives at the same time?
On the Same World?
In the Same Order?
All the way to bashing the Big Bad Black Lizard and beyond?
As Patrons, I am letting you know first. You deserve a little cheeky insight into whats coming!
The plan is, that on April 27th, Frilioth and I will BOTH release Episode 1 of our Minecraft Survival Manual series separately. Two videos, same challenge and objective. Different approach!
It’s up to the viewer to decide which style resonates more with them, or choose a totally different path.
The format is basic. A complete how to start a new Minecraft survival world when you know nothing. The kind of things that I would have wanted to know when I made episode 1 of Avo’s Journey, all that time ago.
How to start a world. How to Craft a Pickaxe. How not to get your Face Eaten. You know… the basics.
However, we want it to encourage more experienced players too, by giving the chance to contribute by sharing the world seed and maybe even giving people the opportunity to build along with us!
So what episodes do you think we should include?
Episode 1 will be about surviving the first night. Others will include things like “How to Find Diamonds”, “How to Farm Food” and “Exploring and Buried Treasure”
My Patrons always have fantastic ideas. While we may not be able to use them all, I’d really value your input on content.
What would YOU have really liked to have known right at the start and how do you think can we keep it interesting for everyone?
As always, Thank you!
