Cooperative Gameplay (Gameplay Mode)

We're taking a break from the hack-and-slash Aurora Novum adventure to update to Minecraft 1.7; in the meantime, we're taking a crack at the Hardcore Quest Map pack Blightfall, where we'll be tasked with surviving on a hostile alien world and attempting to establish a human colony.
 
In this first episode we get the background story and then head down to the planet to find out how bad things really are.
 
Blightfall can be found on the Technic Launcher:

This brings to a close the first season of Aurora Novum. The series will be taking a break while we upgrade the world to Minecraft 1.7, either with a new version of this modpack or perhaps with another pack with even more mods. In the meantime, a new series will start next week!
