Minecraft developer Marcus Persson and a couple people from TigSource are the core people behind this cheaply made indie game. Developer Persson quit his job as a game developer to make indie games and this was what came out of it. This game has a vast amount of open space and is one of the most unique games I have played. Not like most games Minecraft’s main objective is to create and design your own home and create unique places and fight off enemies. This game is still in Beta so it isn’t fully finished but for game not fully finished it is really good.
The creative style of the game is the most terrific part because you’re able to make environments that are straight from your imagination. You can create villages your own city, caves, and I have even seen people build huge towers just to blow them up. This game is just to show off your imagination and create your own world to adventure through. The game in my mind could be a little better and allow you to have people everywhere and be able to not just be a lone on this world.
Still the game is in BETA and won’t be done for a few years, it has been in the process since 2010. Many people would agree that a game that is perfected turns out to be perfect. Many games have been half done and know one wants to play them, a game takes every little detail into consideration. A great game isn’t just a story or how many things you can kill, it’s about what is fun. I consider Minecraft extremely fun and addictive, I don’t know what it is about this game that makes me want to pick it up every time. I give this game a high replay value and a great time consumer. You can go to the main website and start playing now buy purchasing the game or trying out the classic version, for free. So go out and enjoy the world of Minecraft.
