If you haven't heard of this before, shame on you. :p

It's a game being made by a single person, Markus Persson(AKA Notch). It has a creative and a survival mode. The creative is simply sandbox freedom, where you can do whatever you want. In survival, you have to brave the elements.

Creative currently has a multiplayer version, and survival has one on the way.

http://minecraft.net/

A few of your staff from here play it with me, on the WoM(http://worldofminecraft.com/) servers.

i just played the survival test....and i was beating some stick thing and a sheep....what do you really do in that game?:confused:

Miclee
06-17-2010, 05:47 PM
Survival test is an outdated version of what is known as 'indev' or 'infdev'. It's more of a test and not 100% playable, yet, whereas indev/infdev are(though you have to buy the game to play them).

Khan kreiger
06-17-2010, 05:49 PM
oooh....well what do you actually do in the real game?

Miclee
06-17-2010, 05:51 PM
You can mine, farm, hunt, etc. At night, there are some monsters that come out. You can either find shelter and wait the night out, or fight off the monsters.

EDIT: Keep in mind, the game is still in the alpha stages, so a lot of things will still be added/changed/fixed.

Khan kreiger
06-17-2010, 05:55 PM
wow that actually seem like fun....how much does it cost though

Miclee
06-17-2010, 06:13 PM
It costs around $14 or $15 USD, I believe.

EDIT: That's the alpha price, it will double once entered beta.

Loool me and my friends used to play this soo much about a year ago. Or 9 months. It was great, we recently decided to hop back in, but some evil delete guy kept deleting our stuff.

I built a huge Litos figure stickman and then I built an underwater hall with water flowing through glass columns and the throne and pronounced myself king of the underwater empire!

*swims away*
Good times...

Heh we left the server eventually. But it was funny how we were sitting on voice chat and we had guards posted up on all angles watching out for him. Then some guy yells like it's the end of the world and all start running around and yelling, hahaha.

Some servers, now, have protection from that kind of thing through various commands and moderation.

I suppose I just don't understand the concept...Seems to be a big map editor that you can do with your friends? Lego-style? It's always fun to create stuff but is there anything else to the game?

If you buy it, there is a 'survival' mode where you must quite basically survive. There are monsters, tools, crafting, etc.

When i tried it that was all i could see in it too... I expected it to be a lot less... cube based.... im sure it could be fun if you like that sort of thing... But halo's forge has all the building i require i guess... :D

It's one of those game that come close to most of players, slap them in face and say "Hey look, graphic is not important. Really.".
Oh and that 10 post limit is going to endup in tons of ressurected topics.

I currently own three massive castles on different servers, used to have four where one span one third of the explored map. We were 30 players on that server. It was restarted due to a certain person's sizable castle making the entire server lagg like hell:rolleyes: I didn't make the entire thing alone, or i did in paint and gave the others the design then they helped me make it:D It was awesomexD

I always loved Notch due to the fact he came from doing things like this as he was one of the previous members of the Dev time for Wurm Online which it seems he brought a lot of what he did there into Minecraft and made it a lot more enjoyable it seems, its good it see.

sirdustin
12-06-2010, 11:29 PM
Dude this game insanely awesome but i wish there was more to do like ships cannons and the ability to put npcs on your side that would make the game 5 times better.

12-07-2010, 09:34 AM
it's still in alpha so anything can happen. and you can make some kind of cannon with TNT. also Notch have mentioned having NPC towns in the game.

if you are too stupid to play it than that is bad for you because it is one of the original games you can play
but something with building a fortress for dwarfs is for nerds or something:p
i think it was dwarf fortress

but i found a solution to people destroying your stuff. i build my castles out of obsidian and just use the multiplying glitch to get however many i need, it works perfectly lol

When i saw it for the first time i couldn't imagine why ist so popular, but if you are just a bit creative and you play the game some time it's really hard to stop playing. You explore more and more things and you start to plan what you want to build and over time your plans become bigger and bigger. If you haven't seen it, check the videos on youtube.

I've got a minecraft account, really looks like a great concept. Hoping that I can find some more time to play it once the SMP part is more stable. I'm also hoping that they make the game playable on low-bandwidth connections. Currently sitting on 384kbps dsl which has been 100% for every other game I have ever played.

you and me both, the server I'm on isn't so bad with about two people, three if your lucky, but anymore than that and the server seems to dump itself everywhere.

Yeah, last couple updates, combined with the auth server being buggy as hell and always trying to auth, has made SMP minecraft a nightmare.

It's quite enjoyable at times, except when some griefer decides to ruin all you're creations. It's still funny tough since it creates a lot of drama and drama is priceless.

Love mine craft, especially the ability to completely shape the environment to your liking. I wonder how much control we will have over environmental factors in game. Or maybe like in minecraft the free build mode, if we could have something like that to test out ideas before trying them out on our real kingdoms.

Do you mean playing a LEGIT version of the game on a dedicated server? If so, there is software that can be downloaded by LEGIT players to host LEGIT servers. IF you are using a hamachi server connection, I highly doubt you are playing a non-hacked copy of the game, and should really just stop being a penny-pinching tightwad and spend the $20 on the game. Once you BUY the game, go to the minecraft forums and actually take a look at the thread called: MINECRAFT SERVERS, and stop failing at the interweb browsing.

Yeah, our activity went down.. but it was more because the server kept messing up and trashing our entire world.. basically force resetting us. Then the server admin stopped updating the server..so no one could get in, etc.

Cool game on an official site in the classic awful glitches. Thanks that have shown the link on world of minecraft. There even on powerful schedules game without logs worked perfectly. Interest in that that when with someone you build a drain interest brings. In a survival it is even better. You collect wood you build the house, you hunt on the zombie)) for interesting something to search to walk in caves. And if at night terribly, you sit and you sleep at home)))

SoulScamm3r
04-16-2011, 04:55 AM
Well it is a good game, definitly worth 15€/$. But the first minutes ingame is kinda awkward. You just get dropped on a random spot on the map, without any instructions. So you have no idea what to do. But once you start building, it is suprisingly addictive! :o Rly, your own imagination is your limit (one did build a working 16-bit ALU in minecraft) :p You should definitly give it a try ;)

Briggsby
04-20-2011, 05:15 AM
Definitely worth mentioning now that there is actually a demo now eliminating anyone's excuse not to play this game (unless of course they're avoiding getting sucked into this gigantic time sink :P).
The demo lets you do anything that you can in the proper game but locks your world after 90 minutes; but you can still create another world after that. A very clever way of doing the demo I think. If whoever made this topic's still around maybe you could edit the first post to include a demo link as well?

I dont believe there is a person on the web who hasn't heard about Minecraft by this time :p

Its quite easy to play nothing complex but then again its quite a vast game and quite time consuming ,its one of those games i like to call , The when im bored games.Its like saying call of duty for me.I used to play WoW as a ''main'' game but every now and then you jump back to CoD so u blow off some steam (hopefully not ending up punching your screen with rage tho xD)

yeh but anyways minecraft is quite a decent game i like it although graphics arent the best the gameplay is what it makes it fun.

Yea Minecraft is hella fun..I actually co-own one with 3 others, its called Pixelville, probably have close to over 1k people that have signed up for it, but never more than 40 on at once..the server has a max slot capacity of 60 currently.. Been running strong ever since the original founder couldn't cut it anymore..I am currently attempting to make Minas Tirith (big white city from LotR: Return of the King) however, being the owner tends to make it hard to do anything except answer stupid questions day in and day out..
