What is Minecraft?

Minecraft is a sandbox indie PC game that ha the user place and then break blocks or textured cubes in a 3D environment. Originally created by Markus Persson, a Swedish programmer, this game software was later acquired and published by the company Mojang. In its early years, the Minecraft game was released only or PC use and later had versions for Android, iOS operating systems, and Xbox 360 and Xbox Live Arcade consoles.

This software also contains other activities like explorations, resource gathering, crafting and fighting. It also has two main modes, the survival and creative modes; where the former has the players acquire resources to keep their health level and their hunger at bay while the latter gives the player unlimited resources, flying abilities and health and hunger qualities are removed. The game also has a bonus “Hardcore” mode which is close to survival mode only with the hardest settings.

This game has received various awards in its years; some of these include the Best Downloadable Award and Innovation Award from the Game Developers Conference, the Best Debut Game Award from the game Developers Choice Awards and the Seumas McNally Grand Prize from the Independent Games Festival.
