This Minecraft map doesn’t just want to scare you, it wants to teach you a thing or two. The sandbox game has something to offer to just about everyone at this point and, while a little bit of horror might be hiding in this haunted house, it’s actually just a sneaky excuse to teach you things.

While a lot of people tend to just play Minecraft for fun, there’s actually a lot you can learn in it thanks to Minecraft: Education Edition. This is the version of the game that can be used in schools to help kids learn about all sorts of things from historical figures and maths, to science and things like coding. That’s exactly what this Minecraft map wants to teach you, too – because you’ll only be able to escape using coding logic.
