MineCraft Blocks.

Minecraft - Tower

I’ve been playing MineCraft lately. If it needs introduction, you don’t follow geek culture, aren’t watching many YouTube video’s or aren’t really interested in gaming.
If it needs no introduction, you probably already played it, and really, this blog post will be old hat.

Mojang, the developers of MineCraft recently released a demo. Well, PCGamer released it, but it’s official, so yeah, Mojang released it. It’s the full featured game, save for a timer limiting interaction after ~100 minutes. It won’t be enough. Not even close.

The demo served as my first proper intro to the world of MineCraft. I had seen a couple of videos, I had played the free version (and didn’t see the point, it’s out of date), and I had read plenty of raving reviews, claiming this is gaming heaven, a geek’s Lego set. I just didn’t see the point.

And I’m going to have to cut this post very short, as I am currently building a mine cart system circling my glass-encased lava tower/beacon. After playing the demo, I believed the hype.

MineCraft is amazing.

If you haven’t yet, play this demo, buy this game. It’ll be the best money you’ll spend on entertainment this year.
