If the sunny days and bright nights in well-lit homes free of monsters are making Minecraft boring for you, try surviving in the dark out in the middle of a random field. Or, you could try The Dark Place, a custom map which features some heavy survival horror elements, a few good scares and a number of puzzles that will tease and twist your mind. It’s honestly a rather short map, but that’s only if you can make it from the beginning to the end without getting killed. As will be explained shortly, this isn’t really an easy thing to do.
The goal is to open a set of 12 different levers which can be found in different parts of the maze you end up stuck inside. It’s not just walking around and pulling levers though; while you’re trying to escape you will be hunted by invisible foes known only as Stalkers. These enemies can’t be seen, and even when you’re being attacked and know where they are, you cannot fight them off since they are invincible. Your only option is to keep running or find good places to hide during those times. The Dark Place is one intense map, though it can seem a bit unfair at times.
How to install The Dark Place Map?
- Press the Windows or Start button, then press R. This will open the Run prompt.
- Type %appdata% into the prompt and run the command.
- A folder filled with other folders will now open. Just find the Minecraft folder among these and open it.
- In .minecraft you will find another folder, saves. Unzip and move your world file into this folder and you’re all done.
