Minecraft is a sandbox construction game created by Mojang AB. It's development started around the 10th of May 2009. Pre-orders for the full game started being accepted on the 13th of June, 2009.

Minecraft is a game about placing blocks to build anything you can imagine. At night monsters come out, make sure to build a shelter before that happens. It also has music by C418.

I've renamed the old version of the game "Minecraft Classic", and will be slowly phasing it out. I won't remove it, though. Just hide it.

has word that Microsoft and Mojang are preparing to release the official
Oculus Rift VR version of Minecraft in “a few weeks”, according to a Microsoft spokesperson. Minecraft for Oculus Rift was first revealed at the Xbox Spring Showcase back in March this year, and with it some interesting new features exclusive to the game’s VR version.

Chief among them is a mode which acts as a VR living room, where your virtual environment is represented by your character sitting on a chair and playing Minecraft on a virtual screen. At any point, you can press a button to zoom into that screen, whereupon your perspective switches to that of the actual Minecraft character, and you can move around the world using the gamepad as expected.


This perspective toggle is designed to give players the ability to ‘rest’ if being fully immersed in the first-person perspective becomes too strenuous; the couch perspective being less intense by comparison.

Other comfort features for the Oculus Rift version of Minecraft are mentioned, including a new turning system whereby the player only turns in short increments, rather than as one continuous motion. Much like VR movement systems consisting of teleporting rather than linear motion, this is likely to prevent motion sickness when turning with the gamepad while your head remains stationary.


Mojang’s describes its other VR enhancements:

“We've made tiny, clever tweaks to the way you jump, walk and run to make VR feel as smooth as possible. You can use your head to steer where your character goes and the cursor now sticks to blocks as you dig at them - so you can take in the sights while you mine!”

Though the March announcement only mentioned the use of a gamepad to control movement, the game’s updated website also features an image of an Oculus Touch controller. Though no specific mention is made of Oculus Touch support, it seems likely that such functionality will be added once the Oculus Touch becomes available toward the end of the year. A version of Minecraft for Samsung Gear VR is already available on the Oculus Store, thanks to Oculus CTO John Carmack.

Minecraft is a small building game that looks like it will be very boring at first glance. You look, and you see blocks, you see animals and you see people building dirt houses. Without knowing the mechanics, it cannot be understood. However, once you play, you can suddenly see why people enjoy the game. Minecraft is portrayed as a building game. You put blocks down and build things, which is reflected in the only easily accessible free version. Minecraft is NOT simply a block building game. It…
