The idea behind Minecraft seems obvious in retrospect, but that’s how the great ones always are. The brainchild of one Markus Persson -- better known as Notch -- Minecraft sprang from unassuming indie roots to become a worldwide gaming phenomenon.
Its killer hook? Building stuff. Minecraft sets you loose in a 3D world where you can build whatever you can imagine, and time and again Minecraft players have shown that they have rather impressive imaginations. A huge online community’s sprung up, swapping worlds, creating mods, and generally developing a culture all its own. Then there are the creepers. Mario has goombas, Zelda has moblins, Minecraft has the creepiest silent, green, walking bombs this side of a David Lynch movie. Creepers like nothing better than to sidle up when you’re looking the other way, announcing their presence only with the terrifying hissssss they emit right before detonating. But hey, you were planning to remodel that wall anyway. (Pity about your leg.)
