The sun is rising, I can’t seem to make out what’s happening. The world is literally creating itself in front of me. I was left with one objective, survive. I begin to gather wood from trees at an attempt to make a shelter for the night, you never know what hides in the shadows. I use the excess wood to make tools. A pickaxe, a shovel, and a sword, they aren’t much…but they’ll work. I start off making wooden planks, maybe to make a temporary cabin of some sort. The sun is high now, there isn’t much time until nightfall, I’ve got to hurry. I can see the animals retreating into the darkness, they’re definitely running from something.
The darkness is upon me, and all I have is a half-assed “house” and a wooden sword. I could explore and fight off the creatures waiting for me outside of my door, but I choose to wait instead. I hear them yelling out to each other..they know I’m in here. They seem to be afraid of the sunlight, I suppose that’s good enough for me. I’m getting drowsy, but I can’t fall asleep, they’ll get me if I do…what will they do with me? Who knows. But I’m not willing to find out.
The sun is beginning to rise. I need to find more resources. I head out and look around, next to my house is a lake, a couple of feet to the left there’s some stone in the ground. That’s where I’ll start. I head to the spot with my wooden pickaxe, it won’t last long, but it’ll get the job done. I begin mining, picking up whatever extra stone I can carry. Maybe I can make some better tools with this excess stone, maybe even a safer house.
I break through stone after stone, I see an unusual one in front of me out of random. It’s like the others, but it has black specs on it..what is this? I mine it anyway, my pickaxe is heavily damaged, I’ll need to replace it. As it turns out the strange stone actually contained coal, which is great. I’ve never been so happy to see coal in my life. You can burn coal. Burning something usually means light. I head out of my hole in the ground only to be greeted with darkness, I’ve lost track of time. Darkness is here. I see my house being shined on by the moon, the only light in this god forsaken place. There’s only one problem. In between me and my house is some type of creature. It has what looks like it’s back towards me. Maybe I can sneak around this thing, I don’t want any extra attention.
I crouch and try to sneak around, but without any hesitation the creature turns around. There we are, face to face. What do I do? I run. Straight to my makeshift house. The creature is right behind me, I can hear him. I get to my house in time and lock the door. It’s staring at me through the door. I can feel its eyes on me, but after a while it falls back into the darkness. I MacGyver some torches out of some sticks and the coal I found. I put them up around the house, and attempt to get some sleep. I need food, weapons, so much more resources..who knows what I’ll find, but I’m not exactly excited to go looking again.
