Minecraft is more than a game—it’s a cultural phenomenon that has completely changed the gaming industry and created an entirely new genre of sandbox open-world low-fidelity games. Despite its tremendous popularity and influence, Minecraft isn’t a completely original game. Its developer, Markus Persson, was inspired by games such as Dwarf Fortress, Dungeon Keeper, and Infiniminer. He first released Minecraft in 2009 to a small audience. A year later, Markus Persson was able to quit his day job and work on Minecraft full-time, as sales of the alpha version expanded. Just a few years later, in 2014, Microsoft acquired Minecraft for $2.5 billion, making Markus Persson one of Forbes’ World’s Billionaires.
In Minecraft, players are spawned into a procedurally generated world made of blocks. There are many types of blocks in Minecraft, each serving a different purpose. Using a variety of tools, players can mine these blocks, use them to create intricate structures, or connect them together to create complicated mechanisms and even primitive computers. Minecraft includes several different gameplay modes, with Survival and Creative modes being most popular. In the Creative mode players are given unlimited blocks, making it possible to relatively quickly create large projects. In the Survival mode, players must defend themselves against enemies, which appear during every night.
