Minecraft is a sandbox building indie video game written in Java originally by Swedish creator Markus "Notch" Persson and now by his company, Mojang, formed from the proceeds of the game. It is focused on creativity and building, allowing players to build constructions out of textured cubes in a 3D world. Minecraft is currently in development and Beta is the only continuously updated version of the game. It has been continually updated and patched since then, and while it was still in alpha release, it garnered several hundred thousand sales and received critical notice and acclaim from many reviewers.
