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.
