Minecraft Mod Reviews


v0.4 - The Veils of the Nether Update has been released!

Inspired by Hades, Dark Souls, and DOOM Eternal, TREPIDATION is a horror modpack that completely transforms Minecraft into a speedrunning action-roguelike game.


You spawn in the Nether and immediately notice there is a timer on your screen ticking down. Battle upwards through terrifying dimensions to the top of the world and kill the Ender Dragon before time runs out.


Each dimension is vertically stacked on top of each other and are unique with their own barriers, progression, mobs, challenges, bosses, and more. Mobs are enhanced with smart and dangerous AI, allowing them to break blocks, pillar upwards, dodge, lunge, and even use special abilities.

The End

The Surface

The Deep Dark

The Erebus

The Nether (spawn)


You are an acrobatic master, letting you sprint faster, dash mid-air multiple times, double jump, and wall climb right off the bat. Use these abilities to traverse great distances, cross lava oceans, or get yourself out of sticky situations.


Experience a next-level combat system, featuring dynamic animations, mechanics and QoL features. Equip yourself with gear sets for unique bonuses, skills, weapons, and trinkets that expand your agility and combat options even further, allowing for a virtually infinite skill ceiling.


This is not for the faint of heart. With horrors ranging from lovecraftian, psychological, paranormal, and more, panic and terror will be your default state. Music, visuals, atmosphere, sounds, terrifying creatures, and more were all heavily changed to be as scary as possible.


Speedrunning is the heart of TREPIDATION. Use the knowledge you’ve gained from all your deaths and race against the community to compete for the best time. Take part in community-wide events and tournaments with hosts and spectators that put you head to head with one or more players in the same server to race to the top.


Traverse through each dimension as you expose the mysteries of TREPIDATION's world and lore to break the curse and discover the world’s supernatural origin.


TREPIDATION contains mature content and themes, some of which may not be suitable for some audiences. These include: Excessive gore/decapitation, realistic arachnids, mentions of self-harm, paranormal themes, loud jumpscares, and other frightening scenes.
Discretion is advised.




Due to the nature of TREPIDATION's genre, we don't ship a server pack or partner with a hosting company.

HOWEVER, you can still play with friends easily using ZeroTier (or Hamachi if you want).

Follow the guide below to play with friends.


  • SKIP THE PART ABOUT CHANGING ADAPTER OPTIONS, instead, copy the IP address of the host's computer on the ZeroTier dashboard and give this to your friends. They will use that to direct connect. Remember to add the port that the server is hosted on (in MC chat after you open to LAN) after the IP, like this: xxx.xx.xx:PORT



Chocapic13 Shaders (v9.1 beta 5) is HEAVILY RECOMMDED for the best experience! Drag the zip into the "shaderpacks" folder where the modpack is installed and enable it in the options menu while in-game. This shader is optimized and runs well even on low-end PCs.


OptiFine is automatically downloaded and installed when launching the pack.


Please note, TREPIDATION is in an unfinished state. More content will be added over the course of development.
