When I read the introduction for the contest I had immediately this idea of an giant hourglass which slowly covers the whole world with fine red sand. And Steve the adventurer almost missing it.

So I tried my best to turn the idea into (sand-)blocks and share it with you guys. Hope you like it.
If you do - please diamond, favorite or/and subscribe! Thank you!

Thanks to everyone who supported me in the contest! Here's my final result:

Thanks! The topic of the contest got me excited the second i saw it. So I knew right away what I wanted to build and what the story would be. I tried my best to deliver something interesting to the community and am really glad you like the result.

Looks really good with the off-axis hourglass.
Darn that amount of story...

Anyway, good luck with the contest although you're competition!

Thanks eagoy. Actually there was a second (short version) of the story with max 5-10 lines of text planned. I've really tried to cut it down - but well - in the end it was either still too long or lost too many details - so I skipped it. But then again, everyone knows: women just can't say things briefly. Truly - it's impossible! Sorry for that!

Yarp, but the chance is quite big they turn mad into you when you point that out.
