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.

You can read more on the development blog, or here.

After a last-minute delay last week, Minecraft’s first official desktop VR mode has finally launched for the Oculus Rift. The update comes as part of the news Minecraft Windows 10 Edition Beta, and requires a launcher from Oculus to work. This also means that Minecraft’s Oculus Rift support is currently restricted to Windows 10.

Mojang has also released a new developer blog that goes into the efforts required to make Minecraft work in VR. The video log describes how the entire effort was kicked off because Mojang was contacted by Oculus CTO John Carmack, who wanted to make Minecraft for VR because his own kids play Minecraft. From there, Oculus and Mojang formed a team that would meet multiple times a week to work on integrating VR into the game.

A significant aspect of that integration was changing the controls to work for VR. For example, Mojang has integrated a “stutter turn” where the view instantly snaps 22.5 degrees in a direction, rather than turning smoothly. Interestingly, this reduces disorientation when not using your own head to turn. The team also realised that, counter to their expectations, movement in first-person VR required as little inertia or smoothness as possible to be comfortable.

Should that comfort level drop too low, however, you can press a button to zoom out to a “Minecraft living room”, where your first-person view is now static, and you see the game being played on a virtual television just in front of you. This allows you to spend time keeping your perspective stationary, but while still being able to play the game on a virtual screen. Pressing a button will zoom you straight back into the actual first-person perspective when you’re ready.

For more information on Minecraft’s Oculus Rift mode, as well as its already-released Gear VR version, you can visit Mojang’s official Minecraft VR page.

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…
