What is Minecraft?

Let’s start at the beginning for those who have heard of Minecraft, but still aren’t really sure what it is. I was going to try to come up with some explanation on my own, but this quote explains it best….

Minecraft is a game about placing blocks and going on adventures. Explore randomly generated worlds and build amazing things from the simplest of homes to the grandest of castles.

That is why kids love it. They create their own world. They create and play with their friends (online and offline friends) in that world. The games are family friendly, so parents like it too.

From Online to Offline Play

What I find fascinating about the online Minecraft world is that it isn’t very high-tech. It looks like it was created around the time of Tetris. It’s simple building blocks in a very low tech environment.

While kids are craving more and more high-tech, they are also fascinated and craving the low tech. Very interesting I believe!
