Minecraft is a first-person fighter/sandbox construction game created by Mojang AB.
Everyone knows Minecraft is a good sandbox crafting game, inspired by LEGO.
I should say, Minecraft is not only a game. It's also one of the greatest indie game development milestones.
It has formed enormous and responsive community, and predicted an era of game monetization based on early beta-access.
For me, the message Minecraft sends to us is clear: "Each man can create, if he wants to".
