Roots of the gameplay

Hello guys,

sorry I didn't post for a week now, but I had some free-time-stress ;-)

Last time I told you a little bit about Minecraft and its developing process... today I'm going to tell you how the gameplay looked like at the beginning:

At the beginning Minecraft just had some "core-blocks" like wood, earth, stone, and so on. All you could do was fly around and put some blocks on each other to build some buildings. You didn't have a limit of blocks, so you didn't have any motivation to dig your way underneath your world.
But that was in the past.

Today Minecraft is about surviving... and that is not a metaphor.

About Minecraft: The Developer

Hello guys,

I forgot to tell you what Minecraft exactly is, so here I go:

First of all it's a game still in Beta, that means it is still in development, and is getting developed mainly by  a swedish indie-developer (that means he isn't reliant on a big publisher like EA or Activision). Because he's a indie-developer, he can do with his game whatever he wants, whenever he wants. And that is what Notch does (Notch is the nickname of Minecraft's inventor Markus Persson):

In periods from a few weeks to a few months Notch releases updates which bring short additions and sometimes even huge new contents to the game.

Next time I'll tell you more,

craft 'ya later,

About my blog:

Hey guys, 

because I'm new to this blogging stuff and don't really know what to write in here I'll come straight to the point:

In here I am going to post every few days (if possible more often) my experiences with the open world-sandbox-game Minecraft. So you will see some presentations about texture packs and mods, but also some screenshots and descriptions about my current project called "Colsiona".

 If requested maybe I could force myself to record a few videos about some construction descriptions or even  a few flythroughs across my map "Colsiona", which is still in progress.

So that's it for the beginning, 

'craft ya later,
