I made a game in 48 hours this weekend, for the Ludum Dare competition.


It's an action based dungeon crawler with six levels, four boss fights, and plenty of secrets and loot. It takes about 20-30 minutes to beat the game, and if you die, you need to start over from the beginning.

This has nothing to do with minecraft..Notch was either testing his skills again or just wanted to make the game..

It is a VERY interesting game. It an't a texture pack though. My PC runs this VERY smooth for a 728MB of RAM PC from '02. This game is fun. I like it. This is a dungeon crawler while MineCraft is a Open World Creative Sand-Box game.

This is be like posting a DOTA2/Left-4-Dead news on the Half-life 2 page just because it was made by same developers, which would be Valve.

Downvoting that guy just shows how much intellect most of the viewers from this page have. Maybe making a news post everytime Notch farts is a way to fill the void where the news from the mods should be.

Seems some people who follow Minecraft are out of the loop on what Notch has been doing lately. I love this game, got a good bit through and then died. For some reason it's cut off the right a little bit though.

I was also a good way in. And then "FFUUUUU--!!!". Those zombie bastards got me while I was slipping around on the ice. Really sick game Notch! Can't wait for any other interesting games you guys at Mojang pump out in the future.

Well,from what i see notch has big tallents..Not everything he does if focused on minecraft but unfortinetly his community is orriented to minecraft mostly..Mainly mojang has other games after the full release of minecraft,scrolls is gonna be their future project,we should enjoy other games,not just minecraft...it's unhealthy to play minecraft all the time!

It's probably because Minecraft is a pathetically unfinished game which we spent good money on, he should spend more time actually adding gameplay depth to it instead of working on crappy games.

You paied for the "crappy version" of minecraft. The updates are just extra content

From the prepurchase.jsp on minecrafts website:
Please note that when you buy the game, you're paying for the game as it is right now!

he's always done this form of game. They say any game is a ripoff of one of four games. I know one is quake, one is a puzzler, one is a sandbox (The Sims?), and I think the last was a sidescroller. maybe mario.

try to find a game that defies this rule, and you win the games industry.

COD? MW2? hell, even MC? all ripoffs of quake. MC also falls into sandbox. bejeweled? myst? Amnesia? puzzler ripoffs. chess? Super meat boy? VVVVVV? wii fit?

actually, wii fit is a good exception. but it's not really a game. it's a portable gym. but you get my line of thinking.

there is no originality. there is only ingenuity. to make the concept new and refreshing. Minecraft does it well, Super Meat Boy does it well Amnesia does it well. these are the games that are good. and they are all technically ripoffs.

One of the BIGGEST problems these days:Players think they're gamers if they have all the crap in a game (BIG EXAMPLE IS MW2) instead of playing over 100 games..Back in 2004 if you wanted to be a gamer you needed to play atleast 100 games,that's how it worked,these days people are gamers with only one or just a few games..They start accusing other games of rip offs just because they haven't played enough..I'm currently gonna try deus ex 2 to see how it is,i'm curious..I like to play tons of games when i have the chance,i can't say i've completed 100 games but i do know i appreciate every good game i play,even the ones with flaws are still fun to play at moments..The beauty of being an actual gamer is you just play for fun,not for levels,perks or whatever the hell the game includes..This game was fun,i enjoyed it....Nice speach kizzy,hopefully mine is just as good and also,wanna be a real gamer?Than play games from all times,no matter if NES or completely new games such as Portal 2 or the really brand new Deus ex which my PC can't handle..

Deus Ex 2 (Invisible War) was not so good, Deus EX 1 was fantastic, and Deus EX 3 (Human Revolution) is fantastic too!

It was more fun than expected, though, minecraft I did no have the patients for, don't ask me why but I think that it may be because of the action involved.
