Series HistoryEdit

Far Lands or Bust was originally called 'Minecraft Adventures' and was intended to be a standard Let's Play of Minecraft. However, Kurt quickly got bored of this and after reading a blog post by Notch about the Far Lands, Kurt went on an exploration to the titular Far Lands. Season One is unusual as far as the series developing. Kurt's commentary was still very early in development and Season One also had many stops on the way to the Far Lands to build bases like Moonbase Alpha and cave.
