Minecraft might be known as one of the most popular family-friendly games out there, but the sandbox title can actually be quite brutal, as players will sometimes struggle before they can survive in the world.
One streamer learned this lesson the hard way when her beloved pet sheep that she was taking care of were suddenly attacked, and the intense experience caused her to break down crying.
An explosive enemy
Twitch streamer ‘lisabby’ was having a laid-back session in the sandbox game as she joyfully took care of her pets, when a Creeper dropped down in the background and began to move slowly towards her as she was unaware of her surroundings.
She then looked up and saw the enemy flashing red to her left. “Ooh!” she yelled, while swinging her weapon at the foe. But it was too late, as the Creeper exploded on the streamer and her pet animals.
“No, no, no! What the f*ck!?” she screamed, shocked by the moment before breaking down in tears after she had time to take in what had just happened to her.
Holding her hands to her mouth, lisabby turned to her audience and shouted “Oh my God, my sheep!” before she surveyed the damage done to her pets living area which had caused a crater in the ground.
“Come back in!” she told her pets, which were struggling to get out of the hole, before some of them climbed up to the higher ground. “Okay, I need fence. Where’s the fence? Oh my God...” she exclaimed.
According to her 'About' page on Twitch, lisabby is from the Netherlands and only started streaming in June. Despite this, she already has hundreds of followers – no small feat for someone who's just started out on the platform.
The variety streamer's schedule is currently “irregular” as she puts it, because she’s still attending college, and is balancing between her education and streaming.
While Minecraft has been out for close to ten years now, the sandbox games recent explosion in popularity in 2019 has seen new players jumping in for the first time.
However, this means that they're having to learn the harsh lessons that many learned years ago, which provides entertainment for more seasoned viewers.
