September 18, 2010 4 comments

Notch has been having some server issues with the influx of new players lately with all of the publicity. Plus he’s been busy getting his company going so things have been quite hectic around there. Anyways, Notch has opened up Minecraft this weekend, meaning it’s free to play. (the “indev” version) So enjoy it now!

[update] Minecraft!

Oh the beloved Minecraft. I mentioned Minecraft originally in the first few months I had started started this blog. There has been MANY updates since then and I have not updated due to the sheer frequency that Notch updates his game. Unfortunately, if you do not have a (paid) indev accessible account, you will never see these updates. Except of course from the other players who like to brag about their purchase. Personally, I think its damn worth the 15USD. It has a lot of potential to become a great game. Sales are increasing everyday and there are more people being exposed to the game. So if you haven’t bought the full game yet, here are some reasons why you should:

-mining (duh!)

-crafting of in-game items

-day/night cycle (seasons will be coming soon)

-farming

-combat with crafted items

-randomly generated, but beautiful worlds (in their retro, blocky style goodness)

-custom skins

Those there are enough to keep me busy at night. And there’s more content to come. So buy it now before the price doubles!

Notch just recently added support for crafting! Of course it INDEV only, for now.

“The game now contains 59 block types, 34 item types, and 36 recipes for crafting. More’s coming!

You can make food now by making a wooden bowl and mixing some mushrooms into it.

You can make arrows, and bows, and TNT, and workbenches, and chests. And golden weapons, if you want to. Oh, and the gemstone formerly known as “emerald” is now “diamond” because it makes more sense.

Thanks for all the feedback. I’m pretty sure I’m sticking to this style of crafting. I will make it more ingame if I can so you don’t spend all the time in the inventory.”
