What is it?
Minecraft is a sandbox game built in Java, the game is currently in pre-release alpha. In minecraft you have a character and some blocks, you're given free roam of a map and you can delete or create, there have been some amazing structures built so far. Currently you can pre-order the full game for EU9.95 or $15, when the beta is released the price will increase to EU15 or $22. There are currently plans for multiple game modes, including survival and capture the flag!

How do I play?!
Simple, register for an account and select a server, once you're in you can start building! There was a load of new block types released yesterday so we've got a lot more now =D You can build anything from a huge erect penis to a brilliant medieval castle. The game has water, which you can manipulate using "sponge" blocks to create brilliant underwater structures, you can also create huge seas and beaches!

Sounds shit!
Fuck you.

The official forums for minecraft are here, you can find a wiki with lots more information here and the actual game here! There is also an IRC Channel!

Sounds awesome!
It is. I've set up a private server for newgrounds here! So, register then go to that URL and you can join me and some other newgrounds users in making... stuff!

This isn't my game.

I don't quite get it. You walk around and build stuff? Can you build together with others too?


In the beginning the Universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move.

Yes, you can build with others once you register.

Yeah, these games are totally similar, just like half life and call of duty are the same. Genre doesn't define a game, bro.

I wrote my name in the sky so the shadow is on the ocean. Looks epic.

My testament to glory!

I also finished a half build house only to have the owner get mad at me and take the house. At least he didn't delete my name.

This place is starting to look like Rapture; some buildings are ruined, and the whole place is half-sunken.

Sorry, I thought you were just going to delete or ruin the whole house.

The price is 9.95 in euros, but can be paid in any currency. It's around £8.50/$15.

The upgrade has no set release date, but it's expected to be in a week or so.

So after this update, you will have to pay to play the game?
