Blackwater was the newest part of Red Dead Redemption's Old West, the section of Rockstar's hit game that pointed the most to the 21st Century where people were playing it. It was a bit of time travel, if you will.
That time travel gets another twist with a re-creation of the RDR location in Minecraft. Minecraft's stock-in-trade is blocky, old-school 8-bit graphics and a lot of the homages done in Mojang's hit hark back to gaming's past like Punch-Out!! The Blackwater build touches on a more recent game, yet looks like it could've been based on Sunset Riders.
