NVIDIA creates Minecraft Winter Wonderland to raise money for children’s hospital

It’s the season of giving, and with Christmas around the corner, NVIDIA and Minecraft have created a fun, festive Minecraft experience for charity. Comprised of over 30 million blocks, this grin-inducing winter wonderland is a free-to-download custom Minecraft map, aimed at raising funding and awareness for London Children’s hospital – Great Ormond Street (GOSH).

Taking full advantage of sexy ray-tracing tech, the map adds in some fun Christmas-themed storytelling, from an interactive Santa in his grotto to rides, food stands and even some make-shift quests.

It’s a pretty impressive creation, taking one (probably exhausted) Minecraft specialist over 3000 hours to build and spanning an absolutely mega 38 acres. In a clever touch, the free map allows users to donate to the hospital using in-game mechanics, with a full recreation of the hospital nestled into the Noelle diorama.
