Minecraft's Ending Makes for a Lovely Song

When you're deluged with in-game recreations of basketball, the first 15 minutes of Star Wars, and a giant Golden Toilet, in can be tough to remember that Minecraft is a game with a conclusion. Someone's adapted a song from what happens after that conclusion—which I guess means this video should carry a spoiler alert.


When you complete Minecraft, a credit screen rolls with a poem, written by the Irish novelist Julian Gough. This song is an adaptation of that poem. The lyrics come from excerpts of its text, not entirely taken in order.

The song is by Eric Fullerton, whose Dead Workers Party is behind The Shaft podcast about the game. Enjoy.

Minecraft's End (music video)



"Back in my day, Minecraft didn't have an ending! We had to hike 15 MILES through the tundra just to get back to our base from our mine."

"Oh, Grandpa!"
