Hi everyone! In today’s post, we’re going to provide a detailed explanation of all the features that Minecadia’s new Prison realm, “Arkham”, has to offer on release, as well as important updates that will be released in the near future. Before we begin, lets cover some important information regarding the release:
- Release Date: Saturday, October 22nd, at 3 PM EST
- Server IP: play.minecadia.com
- MC Versions: 1.17+ & Bedrock Compatibility (explained later)
- Store: https://store.minecadia.com/category/prison-arkham
- Discord: http://discord.gg/minecadia
- Twitter: http://twitter.com/playminecadia
Now, let’s get into the content - starting from the beginning, before we explain every feature.
When you first join Minecadia Prisons: Arkham, you will spawn in a secluded area where you will pick your starting custom pickaxe. On release, there will be five pickaxes to choose from: The Demonic, Slime, Galactic, Wizard, and Candy pickaxes. Each of these pickaxes have their own unique custom look, as well as their own custom ability, and can be leveled up. (These will be explained in more detail later in the post!)
After choosing your starter pickaxe, you will then be able to choose your starter alien. Aliens are unique beings that follow you around constantly, providing special benefits while in the mines, and can also be leveled up. On release, there will be six aliens to choose from: The Sweet Tooth, Billionaire, Reaper, Toxic, Antlantean, and Cyberpunk Alien. (These will be explained in more detail later in the post!)
Once both your starter pickaxe and alien is chosen, you will spawn in the Prisons lobby. Exploring this area will give information about the server (which we will also do in this post) and also give you access to a bunch of NPCs that provide significant use in the gamemode - which can also be accessed through the main menu. Upon spawning here, you’ll have your pickaxe, your backpack, and your main menu. Access the main menu by right clicking while holding it.
From here, you can start your journey! Warp to the first mine and start mining to gather currency (tokens & gems). Tokens are utilized for upgrading your pickaxe enchants, autominer enchants, backpack space, blocks for your cells, in the club bar, and to upgrade your player level to access new mines! On the other hand, gems are mainly utilized for buying alien eggs and upgrading autominer storage.
Some of these terms may not be familiar, so we’ll be explaining each one below!
As explained earlier, there are ONLY Custom Pickaxes on Minecadia’s Prisons realm. Each Custom Pickaxe has their own special ability, and can be leveled up to buff this ability. On release, there will be the five pickaxes mentioned, but we have plenty more in store to release over the upcoming weeks and updates!

Aliens are unique beings that follow you around, providing special benefits while in the mines, and can also be leveled up to buff those benefits. By default, you will have 3 active Alien Slots; however, Alien Slots 4-6 can be unlocked temporarily through crate rewards to maximize your earning potential! There are three alien eggs that you can purchase with in-game currency, gems: Common, Rare, and Legendary. On release, there will be a total of 20 Aliens that can be utilized on Minecadia’s Prisons. There are 7 Common Aliens, 5 Rare Aliens, 3 Legendary Aliens, and 5 Shiny Aliens. To level up your alien to buff its ability, just acquire another alien of the same type, and it will automatically upgrade!

Backpacks also play a huge role in the economy. When blocks are mined, they will go directly into your backpack, and await to be sold at the mine’s sell merchant. Backpacks can have their storage upgraded with tokens, allowing for longer mining trips without having to sell. Be careful, mining with a full backpack will not grant you any blocks or extra currency!
Want a little boost on top of your grind? Spawn in your NPC auto miner to mine alongside you with its own set of enchants, storage, and currency collection. Everyone will have one slot for their auto miner, while slots 2 and 3 are unlocked temporarily through crates. Autominer’s backpack storage is upgraded with gems, while their enchants are upgraded with tokens.
Player Level & Mines
To progress through Minecadia’s Prisons, players need to invest tokens into upgrading their player level. By upgrading their level, they will have access to a brand new mine with better blocks that sell for higher. On release, there will be 20 levels and respective mines that can be accessed by players.
