A few weeks ago, I read a blog post about a game called minecraft. It didnt really have a point, you just walk around a randomly generated world, and are able to lay down blocks, of different types. Well about a week or so ago I ready penny-arcades take on minecraft:


I must say, that I was intrigued… well, I got into the game, and boy, was I in for a shock… Once you understand the game dynamics, it really starts to suck you in. You start imagining all the wonderful things that you can build. Think of the blocks as pixels, and the whole world as your canvas… You quickly begin to see why it can be so addictive. I will play it a bit more, and I might even buy the full version of it, but for now, I think I will stick to the free version, and see what I can build. I have already built a house, with a hidden room and everything… It doesnt take a lot of effort, and actually, its quite therapeutic. The author is planning on making it a multiplayer game, which is a stroke of genius! That I will pay for! I have included a gallery below… Its actually pretty cool! 🙂 Here is the link to play: Click Here
