These three high school students, first graders, love this video game, and it is one of the best-selling games in the world, and confinement requires that they have more time than usual to devote to it This game allows you to reproduce cities or monuments before going on an adventure inside . So Baptiste, Pablo, and Marceau decided to remake Minecraft in the place they know best: their city. “I find Valencia has beautiful architecture, so it’s easy to reproduce, plus we were born here and I’m very attached to Valencia.” Says Marceau Juliet.
At first, the three friends play together, but soon they have an idea to open up a platform where other players join them to help them “build” this virtual Valencia. Minecraft has millions of followers around the world, and high school children hope they can attract five to six people interested in their project. But their hopes have largely exceeded. In the space of two weeks, they gathered around a hundred players around “Valence Minecraft”. “It quickly gained momentum we never could imagine, but it’s so much fun, we feel supported.” Defines a young high school student. The Three Boys also take these players’ online access as an opportunity: “A lot of the players are from Valencia, and that will make us new people to meet afterwards, and we will be able to bond.”
And suddenly, within two weeks, one hundred “builders” had already regained their production Peynet booth, huge fountain, part of boulevards and Faventines Street. They hope they can make the whole city like this.
But the first-year three students also have the baccalaureate diploma which approaches.“We promise to review, but it is our hobby for some to play sports. It’s Minecraft, so first there are online courses and then the game.” Marceau reassured Juliet.
If you don’t enjoy building, but want to go see virtual Valencia, then the three high school students can allow simple “tourist-visitor” on their platform. It is possible to contact him via their Instagram account @ valence_minecraft.
