About Minecraft

SUMMARY:

Minecraft is a sandbox video game created by Swedish game designer Markus Persson, better known as Notch, who later went on to found Mojang, which has since been the developer and publisher of Minecraft. The creative and building aspects of Minecraft allow players to build with a variety of different cubes in a 3D procedurally generated world.

DO ANYTHING:

Other activities in the game include exploration, resource gathering, crafting, and combat. Multiple game modes are available, including a survival mode in which the player must acquire resources to build the world and maintain health, a creative mode where players have unlimited resources to build with and the ability to fly, an adventure mode where players can play custom maps created by other players with certain restrictions, a spectator mode where players can freely move throughout a world without being allowed to destroy or build anything and be affected by gravity and collisions, and a hardcore mode, where the player is given only one chance and the game difficulty is locked on hard, (if they die, the world is deleted). The PC version of the game allows players to create mods with new gameplay mechanics, items, and assets.

INFINITE OPEN WORLDS:

The game world is virtually infinite and procedurally generated as players explore it, using a map seed that is obtained from the system clock at the time of world creation (or manually specified by the player). There are limits on vertical movement, but Minecraft allows an infinitely large game world to be generated on the horizontal plane, only running into technical problems when extremely distant locations are reached. The game achieves this by splitting the world data into smaller sections called "chunks" that are only created or loaded when players are nearby. The world is divided into biomes ranging from deserts to jungles to snowfields; the terrain includes plains, mountains, forests, caves, and various lava/water bodies. The in-game time system follows a day and night cycle, and one full cycle lasts 20 real-time minutes.

SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS:

You'll need to check the system requirements from the game store where you want to buy the game from as requirements differ from platform to platform.
