Steve Co. Supply Crate
This page is about a screamer or shock site, whose original copy has been deleted.
Steve Co. Supply Crate also known as Locked Chest was a feature in the sandbox video game Minecraft for April Fools in 2011, When creating a new world, locked chests would spawn at random locations on the map.
When clicking on a locked chest, the player would be redirected to the Steve Co. Minecraft Store. It pretended to be a Pay 2 Win Shop for Minecraft. However, clicking on the Proceed to Checkout button triggered the screamer part in which a Velociraptor from the Jurassic Park franchise, growled loudly and flew across the screen, here are all of the items on the store listed below:
- Steve Co. supply crate key ($3)
- Steve Co. supply crate key 5-pack ($18)
- Miner's helmet ($21)
- Name change ($99)
- Creeper saddle ($42)
- Secret griefer identity ($155)
- Enlargement pill ($2)
- Response from support ($494)
- Three "coming soon" items (priced at $75, $7, and $1499)
- Regular padlock ($8)
There was also a "seizure mode" which activated when the player bought items with a total price of $10,000. The website then proceeded to ask the player if they are prone to seizure, and if they answered yes, the website background changed to a flashing strobe light, However, Notch removed it to avoid lawsuits from Universal and posted about it in the forums.
Notch states that he was going to remove them at midnight on April 2, but did not due to illness.
As of April 2 (the day following April Fools), the store had a multicolored banner that stated "♥ April Fools'! ♥", along with a MIDI instrumental of Rick Astley's Never Gonna Give You Up plays in the background. Tobias Möllstam stated that this was "the best script he's written to date."
