Minecraft is a video game made in 2009 by Markus Persson and his company, Mojang. It is sometimes called the greatest game of all time and ranked #13 on GoodHousekeeping’s list of best games in 2020.
Minecraft is a type of game called sandbox, meaning you can do whatever you want. There are two game modes: Survival and Creative. In Survival mode, you have to forage to find resources, such as wood to help you craft tools and stone to help you build a house or craft some complex machines. In Creative mode, you have an unlimited supply of materials without needing to find them. Survival mode also has monsters, such as zombies and skeletons, that will try to kill you. These creatures are passive in Creative mode. A third game mode called Hardcore is similar to Survival mode but more difficult. Monster in Hardcore mode are more powerful and you cannot come back to life after your player dies.
Minecraft was created by Markus Persson. Persson has an in-game avatar named “Notch”. He was 30 years old when he created Minecraft. Jens Bergensten, also known as “jeb_” in-game, was also a part of creating Minecraft. Bergensten served as a lead developer in Mojang Studios, the company Persson founded in 2009.
The current owner of Minecraft is Xbox Game Studios, a Microsoft company. Mojang Studios used to hold the rights to Minecraft, because they were the company that produced the game. In November 2014, Minecraft and Mojang Studios were acquired by Microsoft for 2,500,000,000 USD.
One of the things that makes Minecraft so popular is the fact that it is very flexible, meaning the game can be played in a lot of ways. Another reason for its popularity is the everlasting things you have to do in Survival Mode to thrive, meaning you need large amounts of time to do small things, getting the player more time in-game. The final reason it is popular is the discovery of the unknown, as no two worlds are the same, meaning you get a different experience every time you create a new land.
In short, Minecraft is a sandbox game with many different playstyles and a new experience every time. You could do something different every time you make a new world. There are also mods to customize your gameplay even more, giving you a virtually endless experience.
