Wanderlust Minecraft Survival Mode

Wanderlust is a nickname coined by redditor superguh for a specific type of minecraft survival map play that does not involve actually downloading any minecraft survival maps. The rules of Wanderlust are as simple as they are demanding, as complex as they are cheese (which is not at all) and as fun as they are rules (which is 100%.)

When I stumbled across this survival mode of play I thought it quite genius and invigorating, especially for those of us for whom Minecraft has recently become rather confusingly bat-filled. To play a game of Minecraft Wanderlust as laid out by the aforementioned superguh, you must perform the following actions:

  • Every night you must sleep in a bed. It can be the same bed but it can not be in the same place twice. You must move your bed to an entirely new area every evening. If you do not sleep, you lose the game. That’s because sleep is important if you want to grow up to be a big strong Steve.
  • Every night you must build a new shelter to house you and your bed, Wilson.
  • Mining is strictly forbidden in this style of minecraft, that is to say, digging a mine is forbidden. All minerals must be found on the surface of things. Say hello to a lot of fast paced spelunking if you have ambitions of finding diamond.
  • Once a structure is built, you must leave it be. You can take only your bed, your furnace and your workbenches. Okay, maybe a torch or two – and that painting you put on the mantelpiece. But that’s all!

And that’s it. Those are all the rules. Pack up your pickaxe and grab a few stalks of sugar cane to nourish you along the way. (Ha! Jokes on you, minecraft sugar is inedible!)
