What Is Minecraft

Page history last edited by Lucas Gillispie 13 years ago

So, what is Minecraft?


Minecraft is an independently developed video game created by Markus "Notch" Persson.  Based on the Java programming language, the game is considered a "sandbox" game. It provides players with a large virtual world consisting of blocks of various materials (dirt, stone, iron, wood, etc.) that can be broken down and crafted into a variety of tools and structures.  


Currently, the game offers two basic modes of play:


Classic - the simplest game mechanics are used.  Players have an unlimited number of blocks with which to build.


Beta - adds a great deal of complexity to the basic mechanics of Classic mode.  Here, players collect resources and develop new items through a variety of recipes.  This mode also allows for "monsters" to be added to the game world.


To learn more, read the Wikipedia article on the game and its history.

Here's a fan-made trailer for the game:
