Minecraft

Markus Persson, a.k.a "Notch" has been a long time Java game programmer, most known for the work of Minecraft. Personally, I've enjoyed some of his works before minecraft, such as L4KD which really excelled based on simplicity and size of the game (4kb).

An example of a user created city/town

Minecraft has been a very successful game, after selling over 2.5 million units, so chances are, you've already heard of it but if you haven't I really urge you to try it out.

Originally, when I heard that my friends were playing Minecraft, I thought it was one of the lamest time wasters out there. Harvesting wool, fighting 8 bit zombies, killing pigs, building houses out of 8bit blocks, what really is enticing you to this game? So, I just had to try it out, and I was hooked. Hooked by the shear simplicity and goal of the game, which doesn't exist. Minecraft is simply a pick up and go game, with no goal in mind, it becomes a creativity game. Like the title of the game ensues, mining is a huge part of the game. Players are able to mine minerals such as iron, coal, diamonds, each having their own uses, and each more rare than the other. Like the picture above, you can also build towns, cities and houses and role play if you'd like, but these are just a few possibilities of the infinite choices you can make.

I do not own or take credit for all of the above images , if you would like them to be taken down, please message me.
How did you get into Minecraft? What is your opinion of Minecraft?

I've heard a lot about this game. I'll have to check it out someday. I love that it's open source.

Its a really amazing game! like its so awesome that there's no direction in the game making you do something. The freedom is just so amazing, if you get it you should come on my server some time.

I love minecraft, I wish I could get it to run though. My mac flipped out when I tried it, I got the grey screen of death and everything...
