What the hell is this? I've happened on some videos of awesome things people have built, like the structure of the USS Enterprise D.

Any of you play it? Addicting?

Personally, no I don't know what it is about beyond what Google told me.

I've seen Mesh mention it a few times though.

I just watched a tutorial vid on youtube. Premise seems pretty interesting. You have to get stuff from the environment and combine it in a certain way to make tools, clothes, etc.

Then at night, bad dudes attack

It's pretty neat.  Just keep wikipedia open for recipes.  You'll never figure out how to play it on your own.

I played it and loved it. I'm a big fan of building games, and the adventure mode is just another layer of awesome. It's only like 15$ USD, and the developer seems to be really putting out those updates frequently. I'm taking it easy though since it's only in Alpha. If the developer keeps updating and supporting his game like he has so far, this game is going to be immensely in depth and great when it's done.
It's at least worth a play, I think there is a free mode.

^that is genius

I mostly pop in occasionally to give my two cents on certain controversial things, so if you disagree then send a PM, because I generally don't check for replies in threads in case I feel like replying and then things get heated/derailed.

I'm anxiously waiting for the complete version of this game. Can't wait to create my version of Orzammer and the Deep Roads. Get those creative juices flowing!

I think you'll be waiting for a long, long time.  The game is always being updated too, so there isn't really a final product to wait for.

Just get in there and make stuff, you can do so much even at this stage.  Plus the price will go up soon too.
Yeah, I guess I should play again. If you buy the game during Alpha(now) you get all future updates of the game for free, even after the price goes up.
So I urge people to just buy the game now if you are even remotely interested in it, since you will be saving yourself like 15$ in the long run.

That kind of stuff is taking it to the extreme, but everyone enjoys different things I guess. Personally, when I play I usually just expand my village piece by piece. Nothing too major, a house here, a guard tower there. Notch mentioned that he wanted to eventually have NPCs or goblins or something that have their own villages. Imagine having NPCs walk in and around you creations, man the game has a lot of potential.

The next patch is going to bring the game to Beta if I read it correctly, should be interesting.

Man, the music of this game is excellent. It's great for throwing a little of stress and let the mind relax a little.

Someone knows who's the composer?

When my friend post her status about her experience in Minecraft on FB, I just had to pick it up because it was still in alpha stage and the price goes up after 20th so it's good time to do that.

As an avid WoW player, I find Minecraft to be very refreshing since it's not about epeen contest, gear heavy game, and bound by quests. I remember my first time in Minecraft, I was trying to build the shelter since it was getting dark then I was attacked by damn spiders.

Then my friend invite me to join her server with her other friend and they had build this huge castle, which was so neat. It's so cool for me to run around, attacking the mobs for lulz, building tools and shelter, and just have plain good times.

I play it every now and then because I don't want to OD'd myself on it like me with WoW. But Minecraft is just plain awesome sauce. :D

What are the requirements? Is it universal, or just Windows only? I can't find anything outlining even what it's for!
