Minecraft Details

Minecraft was developed by Markuss Persson, a Swedish game developer, and released by Mojang in 2011. The game allows the players to develop their own environment in a 3D generated world using 3D objects, commonly known as blocks. Although there are other activities in the game that includes exploration, crafting, resource gathering, and combat, there are no specific goals to accomplish, allowing players the complete freedom on how they want the game to be played.
