Built as an entry to the Planet Minecraft ‘Head into the Clouds’ competition, Aeternium was a collection of ideas and original concepts from many members of the team. Having decided to pursue a project in a definitively Steampunk style, the opportunity to follow a musical and instrumental theme seemed ideal as it allowed us to resemble instruments such as bells, horns and pipes which also represent the steam-powered mechanisms of the Steampunk style.
Floating high above the Earth exists a vast fantasy dreamworld, full of strange and extraordinary mechanical creatures. Clockwork bumblebees fly among the mountains whilst a mechanized turkey grazes below. At the center of this dreamworld is a steam-powered orchestra. Huge and complex contraptions operate a wide variety of instruments which perform in synchrony as one melodic collective: the Symphony of Dreams.
