Default Minecraft

I am an avid Reddit reader. And one day I saw this game that was being developed by one guy. Its called "Minecraft", its currently in alpha stage but the game is catching on like wildfire. The game currently costs 13$ but will double once the game goes into Beta. Already over 250000 people have bought this game and its increasing at a rapid rate. The game has crude graphics but it really doesnt matter. You can do pretty much what ever you want in this game, during the day you need to build up a shelter and gather resources ect. Because when night comes the world is out to get you filled with monsters ready to kill you. They spawn any where thats dark, so you can be attacked at random. There are thousands of videos on youtube popping up every day. This game lets you get creative and its a lot of fun. I think its incredibly addictive.

Default RE: Minecraft

I picked it up just recently and i'm in love with it, very addictive and endless possibilities.

Here's some guys chan i came across looking for help and he has an amazing setup going. http://www.youtube.com/user/Minecraftaddict

There's also skins to help make the game look a bit better, but tbh i like it being crude. It just goes to show you don't need to have amazing gfx to have a great game.


Another edit:

The game offers a free version where you can try it and its only survival mode, but if you buy it and go mp there's a creative mode which basically means create what you want and never endless regenerating resources.

I mad a video showing what ive done and i'm doing in my world...

First off vegas really messed up the colors for some reason, and even tho its not 720p it was lot higher quality before youtube make it look like poo but at least you can see what i was doing.

Watch in 480p its doesn't look as bad as i thought in the darker parts of the video.

Close to 60ish i forget the exact number, that wasn't even my home really. I was going to build the walls up make a block floor and go from there but meh.

My spawn is in the tunnel/hallway kinda thing.

As for the elevator check out this video, i'll probably make my own in a bit.

I don't really understand this game, my friend tried to explain it to me and nothing really made sense...

So you just build crap? Is there any progression? Or what?...

There really is no point to the game. You just get to make what ever you want and just avoid getting killed.
