Very cool! Indonesian Gamer Makes Borobudur Temple in Minecraft in 100 Hours

It’s really crazy, a man spent up to 100 hours making Borobudur Temple. So how did he do it?

This story comes from a gamer and creator from Indonesia. He is known as Baww.

His name started to attract public attention after the video went viral. So last year, he created content on YouTube about how much fun he had making Borobudur Temple in Minecraft Survival.

Baww did this for 100 hours, of which 10 hours were spent grinding (the process of collecting goods/items), and 90 hours were used to build the temple.

He said that the production was divided into three stages. First, make the outline, second, place the blocks, and finally do the detailing.

To complete the first stage, Baww takes up to 10 hours. Then entering the second stage, he managed to complete the foot of the temple in 27 hours and placed the blocks in the middle for up to 12 hours.

Continue to the final stage, namely detailing. Here Baww’s work is more difficult, because there is a lot to make, such as stairs, ornaments, stupas and other details.

According to him, the most complicated part was making the temple wall ornaments. Even though it only takes 15 minutes, he has to make a very large amount.

Nevertheless, Baww managed to complete what he had started alone. After 90 hours of struggling with many blocks, he succeeded in building Borobudur Temple.

At the end of the video, Baww said that this was dedicated to Indonesia, which was celebrating its 77th birthday. Interestingly, this video only went viral in 2023.

Many people are amazed by his skills. Not a few also appreciate his genius, in calculating every corner of the temple where the blocks will be installed.

After going viral, it turned out that Baww received an email from Borobudur Park. They appreciated his work, and gave the Creator free access to Bobobudur Temple for life.

For those who are curious about the manufacturing process, you can watch it directly on the Baww YouTube channel. Currently, the almost 18 minute video has been watched 3.7 million times, received 219 thousand likes and 11,386 comments.

A little information, coincidentally the Game Station team has asked Baww for permission to use information regarding the construction of Borobudur Temple via its official Twitter account. However, until this news was published, Baww had not responded.

Minecraft Sells 300 Million Copies, Becoming the Best-Selling Game of All Time

Minecraft, one of the most popular games in the world, has just set a new record. This sandbox game has sold 300 million copies worldwide, making it one of the best-selling games of all time.

This latest achievement was announced by developer Mojang Studios at the Minecraft Live event on Sunday (15/10). During the event, Mojang also revealed other interesting statistics, such as the average player making more than 700,000 cakes and 8.8 million pickaxes a day.

Mojang last revealed Minecraft sales figures in April 2021. At that time, this game had sold 238 million copies.

Mojang did not explain the distribution of Minecraft on each platform. So this figure of 300 million is a combination of sales on iOS, Android, PlayStation, Xbox, Windows, Nintendo Switch and other platforms since 2011.

Thanks to this achievement, Minecraft is moving further away from Grand Theft Auto V in second place, which has sold 185 million copies as of August 2023. But GTA V is considered newer because it was released in 2013.

However, these two games have not succeeded in beating Super Mario’s record, which has sold more than 800 million copies. But Super Mario is a huge franchise with more than 20 games in the Super Mario series.

Minecraft is the most popular game among children

Another game that is no less popular is Tetris. Even though it is considered retro, Tetris has apparently sold more than 520 million copies in various variations since the 1980s, as quoted from Gizmodo, Wednesday (18/10/2023).

But Tetris and Minecraft cannot be compared. This is because Tetris is a game series that has different mechanics and graphics in each version and platform, while the game is the same game on any platform.

Minecraft was first released by Mojang Studios in November 2011. However, an incomplete pre-release version has been available since 2009. Minecraft was then purchased by Microsoft in 2014 for USD 2.5 billion.

Even though it is more than a decade old, Minecraft remains popular among adult gamers and children. Even outside of games, Minecraft cannot be avoided because there is a lot of content and YouTube videos discussing this game. According to Google, YouTube videos related to that game have been viewed more than 1 trillion times.

Even though the sales figures are fantastic, the number of Minecraft players is still less than other games such as Fortnite. According to data, Fortnite has a monthly active player count of between 220 million and 250 million, while Minecraft’s monthly player count at its peak was 182 million.
