The aim of the game
Numerous and unexplained earthquakes have been leaking through to our real world from a parallel universe called ‘ShakerMod’.
We suspect these earthquakes might be caused by a greedy organisation who’s trying to destroy people’s belongings and treasured items.
You must travel to ShakerMod, find out how this organisation is creating earthquakes, and defeat their evil schemes by learning how to reduce the harmful impacts of quakes.
Once you’ve completed your mission you’ll be given access to special command blocks that let you create your own earthquakes and homes, allowing you to use Minecraft in a way you’ve never been able to before.

How to play and install instructions
What is a Minecraft mod?
A Minecraft mod is a modified game-play version of Minecraft. You will need to have already purchased Minecraft (NZ$40) in order to play ShakerMod (free!).
Kids, please ask your parent’s permission before installing ShakerMod. ShakerMod includes a simulated earthquake experience. This includes how earthquakes feel and sound as you experience them. If you’re worried about this, it might help to turn off the sound in the game’s settings.
