Our Place in Space Minecraft World

A new Minecraft adventure inspired by Our Place in Space is here!

An out-of-this-world experience that sees you journey through the solar system, stopping off at each of the planets and exploring historical events back on Earth.

This unique Minecraft adventure is inspired by Our Place in Space and the world of Oliver Jeffers with astronomical oversight from Professor Stephen Smartt.

Travel back in time and witness some of the issues we have faced on Earth — including war, famine, slavery, and even fake news. As you journey through space and time you will take part in a series of unique challenges and decide your own fate.

Designed by acclaimed Minecraft map maker and YouTuber Adam Clarke (aka Wizard Keen), the new world brings our solar system down to Earth and onto your screen!
