    Incredible cash cow for what it is.

    Exactly. I bought the game a couple years ago, got "into it" for a few months, and now haven't played in probably half a year or logged in at all.

    If you've got nothing better to do but sit there and not be productive, Minecraft is a great mindless consumer of time. I wonder if the abandoned village I took over, made my base, and then camouflaged has been raided yet...

    I have been playing Minecraft for quite a few years now. It's something fairly entertaining and somewhat mindless that I can go play when I have free time. 10 million is a pretty insane figure for something that started out as an indie game.

    Yeah same here... haven't touched that game in a long time now. Used to play it a lot for a year or so though.

    I've been playing for a few years now, I can say got my moneys worth.

  • I've been wondering...what IS Minecraft? :$

    Personal consultant to OP's Mom™

  • @user123 said: Minecraft?

    google it.

  • @curtisg said: google it.

    I tried to, but I couldn't understand the point...

    Personal consultant to OP's Mom™

  • Yes, please someone explain it's basic idea.
    Like it is a strategy game, command and conquer, fps, what is that you actually do in it.

    Extremist conservative user, I wish to preserve human and civil rights, free speech, freedom of the press and worship, rule of law, democracy, peace and prosperity, social mobility, etc. Now you can draw your guns.

  • @Maounique It's a sandbox survival game where you gather resources to expand your existence. You start off with humble beginnings but eventually you build up to create vast and varied structures and systems.

  • To sum it up: java based building block game with enemy's.

  • @curtisg said: enemy's

    Enemies*

    No longer with ND

  • So....it's like Age of Empires, but more restrictive, more expensive, and with crappier graphics?

    Personal consultant to OP's Mom™

  • NickONickO Member

    @user123 Isn't Age of Empires a simulation game?

  • Never ever Played MineCraft. :(
    Barely have any idea about it as well.

  • @NickO said: @user123 Isn't Age of Empires a simulation game?

    Yes. You collect resources, build things with those resources, and build armies/workers. You also try to take over other people's territories. Came out in the 90s, iirc. I think Starcraft was pretty much the same game repackaged.

  • @Voss said: I never fully understood why people are so obsessed with that game.

    Maybe there's a nude patch?

    Why? Is it salable in real world?

    Edit: Offtopic: I never knew adwords/adsense can be placed in videos. Found this on a Minecraft youtube video.

    I'm here to collect your heart

  • It is a sandbox game. You can make and do everything you want and only your imagination is the limit. (and the fact that you only got blocks :P)

    It is a little bit like Gary's mod only bad graphics

    It's MSN with ZX-spectrum quality 3D graphics and a bit of farming/resource-management :D

  • so 10 million people who have spent EUR20 each will be looking for 10 million servers to host their game? or you need to buy the game even to play in a free server?

  • @peppr said: free server

    no such thing, the "cracked" servers aren't legal

  • @peppr said: free server?

    I meant, game hosted by a person who bought the game. If someone new joins the server to play, he must have a minecraft account/game as well?

  • @peppr said: If someone new joins the server to play, he must have a minecraft account/game as well?

    Of course, that's the case with pretty much any paid game.

  • @Bogdacutuu said: the "cracked" servers aren't legal

    I'd imagine they are quite fine, seeing as they are merely using a feature provided by the Minecraft developers - "offline" mode. It's probably the people connecting to them with cracked clients that are at fault.

    Anyhow, the game is lots of fun and it has a strong community backing it, which is part of the reason why it's that enjoyable. There are countless mods out there that enhance the experience even further and you are pretty much only limited by your imagination.

  • @Chronic said: I'd imagine they are quite fine, seeing as they are merely using a feature provided by the Minecraft developers - "offline" mode. It's probably the people connecting to them with cracked clients that are at fault.

    Yeah. Offline mode is made for playing on servers while being, well, offline.

    Plus, the community on the cracked servers is nowhere near as good as the one on legit servers (cracked servers have hackers everywhere, since you can change your username at any time to evade bans)

  • Notch actually said that he doesn't mind people pirating the game as it allows them to see what the game is actually like and get a feel for it before actually buying it.

    ---- NOT WITH NODEDEPLOY ANYMORE ----

  • @BenND said: Notch actually said that he doesn't mind people pirating the game as it allows them to see what the game is actually like and get a feel for it before actually buying it.

    I don't see any problem with that, but there's a demo that you can play if you have an account but haven't bought the game yet, which should be used to see what the game is like before buying.

  • very impressive.

    What how, they're everywhere.

  • @DewlanceVPS said: Why peoples like Minecraft game?

    Because its a Java-based game.
    Conspiracy: Oracle bought 10 million copies of Minecraft as a form of marketing to promote Java.

  • In the last 24 hours, 12,029 people bought the game.

    12,029 * 26.95 = 324,181.55 USD.

    Damn.

    Damn.

    Notch is a multi-millionaire, if he keeps a lot of the money to himself.
