Sumea Pixel Town was a fun little activity that we did way back in 2004 where Sumea regulars nominated their piece of land and began working on some cool pixel art for their plot. In the end, we had a fantastic mural of awesome and very creative pixel art. A worthy thing to note is that plot 49 (the Blues building) was drawn by the late Simon Castles from Castle Music Productions who did a whole lot of audio and music work for Sidhe way back when. It was a long time ago, but I do remember that the Sumea Pixel Town page was quite a popular one. It was highly visited and linked from a whole number of websites including the ABC website under their cultural link page.
I've been meaning to get some other community activities like Sumea Pixel Town happening again as I know you're all an insanely creative bunch, and I've had many activity ideas for us to do something interesting, but those ideas pale in comparison to what communities can do with that indie games phenomenon, Minecraft.
Minecraft really is pixel art in 3D if you think about it creatively, and what better way to get awesome community action happening than setting up a Minecraft server for tsumean's? We have a multiplayer survival mode Minecraft server running now with a capacity of 24 players online. There are some *slight* latency issues since the server is in the U.S, but it's nothing unbearable.
If you have Minecraft and you're bored of playing it all alone (which I definitely am!), why not have some with like-minded local tsumean's? Log in to tsumea and send me a private message with your Minecraft username and I will pass on the server details if you pass the specs. There is one proviso - you must be a tsumea member for at least 3 months, or you can point to an active twitter account or some other identifying information so I know you're a random anonymous that's just going to jump in and grief everyone's work. If you're a tsumea regular or a local developer that I know of, then that should be more than enough. There are some incredibly mountain arches near the spawn point, so declare your spots now!
