About Minecraft

Minecraft is a sandbox construction game, inspired by Infiniminer, Dwarf Fortress and Dungeon Keeper, created by Markus Persson, the founder of Mojang AB. The game involves players creating and destroying various types of blocks in a three-dimensional environment. The player takes on an avatar that can destroy or create blocks, forming fantastic structures, creations, and artwork, on multiplayer servers and singleplayer worlds across multiple game modes.

Minecraft is available to players for €19.95. Singleplayer and multiplayer, when purchased, can be played in the user's web browser, or using the downloadable launcher. Minecraft Classic is available to play for free. Minecraft development started around the 10th of May 2009, and pre-orders for the full game started being accepted on the 13th of June 2009. Minecraft's official release date was the 18th of November 2011. On the 5th of May 2012, Minecraft was released for the Xbox 360 on Xbox Live Arcade for 1600 Microsoft Points ($20.00), where it soon shattered all previous sales records.
