Minecraft is a sandbox building game. Minecraft is focused on creativity and building, allowing players to build constructions out of textured cubes in a 3D world. In the base game there are basically two game modes survival and health and hunger. However people have started to setup community servers that allow for all kinds of build and maker type projects. Minecraft is also starting to see all kinds of modified clients, servers and add-ons that allow for further items to build and make with. I have to say it’s somewhat amazing what people are doing with this game.
A friend of mine and I have been poking around with the game. We have even have started our own Minecraft community server Outlandcraft We are not open to the public as or yet, but are building to that goal very quickly. Check the Outlandcraft website for details.
