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.

Where is the Alpha?

On it's way! We're overhauling and making some huge changes to UMSC and the way it works, we're even changing the name (not really, we're just preferring UMSC). Anyway, like I said we've changed everything, if you don't believe us, check out the recent images! We literally started a new project and started over, completely rewritten from the ground up, here at RudeStar we're calling it "UMSCV2" but to everyone else it will be the Alpha.

So what's changed?

Pretty much everything. The way you'll create servers from now on is 100x simpler than previously and if you don't know what one of the settings is, you can simply skip it now and UMSC will put in the defaults for you automatically. As well as this, server creation is now done in steps which allows you to take it one step at a time. The whole experience is much more unified now and I think everyone is going to love what we've done. We've also added a plethora of new features for you to help run your servers.

We're also introducing RudeStar account integration with the Alpha (maybe not straight away). Logging into your RudeStar account in UMSC will give you access to much more features than using UMSC without an account. We will also be introducing RudeStar+ which we'll talk about another time closer to the release!

Check out the new images:

Settings


New settings, plenty more features.

ConnectionInfo


Connection info, will be updated to have a button to auto connect to your server!

ServerUsage


Lastly, server usage statistics, these will come in handy for knowing how much power your server is using.

Until next time!

I don't know if it existed before, but at night, I'm hearing the scariest noises, and I don't know whats making it. Its making me extremely tense.

Oh, it freaked me out when I first heard it... I thought some sort of boss mob was going to come or something. Hearing it deep inside the caves is even creepier.

I've recently been playing Minecraft via the singleplayer client you released, and I've been playing for at least several hours now. I'm so glad that I bought this game, worth every damn penny.

not sure. they're pretty open though. I can run it on my laptop, and only get lag on the day/night transitions. if you just get a semi-modern system, it should work.

also, java is a must. that's the only must I know of.

nope. I mean, this game is based on "you're on an island on your own". I don't think anyone would be able to make a gun on their own :P

Well it would be nice if it would be nice if modding is posible.
Minecraft has ok style of gameplay but i got anoyed by few things.
The head is a bit too big for a small body and not having atleast 16/17th
century gunpowder weapons is a bit weird, if minecraft is something like searching for gold in small islands then it would be nice.

Its just my opinon...

when the game reaches the Beta stage, it will be moddable(aka gamemodes etc...)
Notch will gives for everyone full API of game, so will be easly moddable

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…
