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.

Oculus has announced that Minecraft's first official virtual reality edition is now available for the Samsung Gear VR. This edition of the game contains two viewing "modes": one sits you in front of a virtual screen, on which the game plays out as usual; the other sucks your viewpoint into the screen, putting you in the body of your character and allowing you to move the view with your head. You can toggle these modes with the press of a button.

Getting Minecraft to work in VR was something of a white whale for Oculus' chief technical officer, John Carmack, as he mentioned back the Oculus Connect 2 conference. Regarding the game's long-awaited release, Carmack said:

“Minecraft is a game that you can both figuratively and literally lose yourself in. In fact, my strongest memories of being inside VR are from the time I’ve spent exploring Minecraft on Gear VR. Experiencing it in virtual reality changes it from an abstract activity to a visceral one – it goes from a sense of playing the game to one of being inside your world, and spinning around to find a creeper sneaking up on you leaves a powerful impression. Infinite worlds have been explored, shaped, and shared by millions of people, and now in VR; that sounds a bit like the fabled Metaverse.”

Minecraft: Gear VR Edition is an offshoot of the Minecraft: Pocket Edition for Android, which means you'll need to pick up an Android gamepad in order to play the game. Oculus recommends the SteelSeries Stratus XL.

Minecraft is also in development for the Oculus Rift, however it will be exclusive to the Windows 10 version of the game, and will launch later this year.

I find myself today buying more indie games than commercial. I cant stand the games comming out now, they are all about graphics and boring low replaybility/multiplayer. It's disgusting how big game companies can sell their terrible games for crazy prices and indie games are ethier free or are low price. In my opinion a game should be valued by its replayability and gameplay and this game right here shines in every one of those aspects. I'm so glad I bought it and I regret my purchases of crappy commerical games.

Great job!

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…
