    Minecraft

    This is a pretty cool game so I thought I would bring attention to it.

    http://minecraft.net/

    You build up things using a bunch of different block styles (you have unlimited blocks in creation mode). There's also a survival mode where you basically just try and fend off enemies whilst building a fort to keep them out. Try out the online miltiplayer, you can find some pretty neat stuff people have built and over time learn how to build your own awesome stuff.

    If you decided to try it out, and build something awesome, post it here.

    This is truth beyond measure. If you like exploration, get it. If you like building things, get it. If you like making automated deathtraps to farm mobs, get it. Minecraft is ten kinds of awesome.

    I remember when I was a little kid I thought a game where you can build and destroy whole worlds made of blocks in first person would be the coolest thing ever. I was right.

    My computer sucks too much. It's running at like, two frames per second.

    It's such a simple game but it's genuinely satisfying when you've been digging for hours and you suddenly have a break through. I'll post screenies of my base/buildings later. I'm pretty unoriginal but its taken hours to build what I have and I'm chuffed with it all <3

    Looking forward to it. I'm trying to create an underground forest at the moment, but I don't know when I'll have time to continue mining, being busy and having other games and whatnot.

    I am genuinely shocked and awed that no one has posted about this, nor have we seen more news on it.

    I've owned it for a few months. Amazing game, simple as shit but endlessly fun.

    This looks interesting and I remember reading about it a long time ago. I'm hearing people say it's pretty simple so I take it there's practically no learning curve?

    Pretty much. There's a learning curve if you want to learn how to build the more complicated machinery (cannons, automated murder machines, complex irrigation and such, etc), but especially if you play on peaceful there really isn't a learning curve. Just pure sandboxiness.

    It's pretty much the most sandboxy sandbox game.

    Damnit, when will I download and play this? It's just hard to find the time for something that looks as all consuming as this.

    Oh, and how is Alpha doing? I heard it was pretty bad but has it been getting better lately or what? I remember hearing something about your save games getting deleted in Alpha. I don't know if I read that in this thread or on the page linked.

    Alpha does still have some bugs (I lost a perfect site T_T) but even with the occasional instability, I'd say it's worth a purchase as the rest of it is still awesome, even with the (very, very) occasional dramatic failure.



    Has anyone else had massive slowdown issues with Alpha? Might just be my crappy laptop overheating (in fact, that probably is it), but I've been having some trouble recently.

    I think the game is just really buggy. I bought it anyway because I like it and I'll get the next versions for free.

    This game is addiction, such a great addiction though.

    EDIT:

    Someone should start a Destructoid Multiplayer server, maybe that someone should be me.

    Yes, it should be you because I don't know how to do that. We could all make a giant Mr. Destructoid castle!

    Count me in. PM the details if this ever gets going.

    Edit : On second thought, just post it here so we can get more people in.
