New on Java Realms: Maps at an Exhibition

A walk through thirteen new artistic works!

It was 10 pm, and I’d put off writing the New on Java Realms blog post – even though I was aware of having to answer to our reigning Overlord and Editor Per Landin should the piece be late. Being late with an article of this magnitude was out of the question. Every few weeks, we cover the latest maps, minigames and experiences made by the community, and make them freely available on the Java Edition of Realms. My deadline was fast approaching and rocking back and forth while nervously sipping coffee was proving to be unhelpful.

Listening to music intended to stimulate creativity, I stared down a record thirteen pieces of content. Whew! I knew that such a quantity would dictate a departure from our regular format, and I found myself at an impasse. I was in the midst of Modest Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition, a suite of songs that takes the listener on a stroll through an art exhibition when all of a sudden – EUREKA – inspiration finally struck! Having recently run out of other clever narrative devices, I decided that I would take you on a similar journey. 

So without further ado – the Java Realms exhibition, featuring the latest maps on Java Realms!

The Mini-games

Today’s exhibition features six action-packed mini-games:

  • Illusions by Creeper Juice & Squishy

The world templates

As we leave the mini-games section behind us, we move onto the contemplative world template part of the exhibition, featuring:

  • Eastern Bay Woods by ZzLEMONzZ
  • Flytrap Takeover by HypixelDoge, collage, and A_Girl

The adventure

Alas, all exhibitions most come to an end, and as this has been a true adventure, let’s end it with one too!
