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.

Boston, Massachusetts April 11, 2014
Emagination Computer Camps, a national operator of summer technology camps, is offering a new two-week overnight summer camp program for teens ages 13 - 17. The camp will be held summer 2014 at Bentley University in Waltham, Massachusetts.  
At Emagination's Minecraft Xtreme Camp, teens learn to code in the Java programming language and use coding skills to build new actions, blocks, recipes and materials for Minecraft, the very popular world building computer game.
No Programming Experience-No Problem!Computer programming skills are the building blocks of software applications. Java is an object-oriented programming language that is versatile and universal, being used on over 3 billion devices. The program is a STEM education opportunity where teens develop and hone computer science skills while having fun creating mods for Minecraft.
The summer camp also offers time each day for outdoor recreation, swimming and tennis in a Minecraft-themed environment. Evening activities include outdoor games, network and console gaming as well as free time to spend with friends.  
Teens bring home their Minecraft mods from camp and can continue to code and show off their work to family and friends. Camper registration is available at ComputerCamps.com.
The game of Minecraft is hugely popular, having sold millions of copies worldwide. Players have the ability to explore, create and build things out of textured cubes in a 3D world. The game bears similarities to building with Lego kits. Crafters have access to a virtual world where they can roam freely and design any number of architectural structures. Minecraft is both creative as well as collaborative, and with no rules or limitations, kids are in control.
As kids and teens become more fluent with technology, the line between gaming and learning is blending together. School teachers are utilizing Minecraft's world building functionality to educate children in the classroom. Minecraft has the ability to be a powerful teaching tool and can cover topics such as probability, physics, history, math, and foreign languages.

Emagination Minecraft Xtreme Camp is designed to develop and advance technical skills, encourage teamwork and creativity, and teach Java programming. The program is immersive and fun! Teens have the opportunity to develop friendships as they explore the world of Minecraft in the classroom and transfer their game play skills to an outdoor summer camp environment.

For teenagers looking to explore technology education, Emagination's Minecraft Xtreme Camp offers the perfect STEM education opportunity to advance skills in an object-oriented programming language while creatively exploring the boundaries of a popular computer game.

I absolutely love this game. I played it nonstop for about two hours on the free versions, looked at the wiki and read about the paid versions, then bought the paid ones. For those who don't have it crafting items is the real major difference for now, also days and nights. I've been playing it nonstop for two days now. I've got my start of the indev down to a science.

Also, too soon but.... TIBERIUM / Command and conquer Mod! It has to be done!

survival is a watered down version of indev, so of course it gets a little boring. the indev version has a lot more stuff to it. crafting for example.

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…
