The premise is fairly simple, you are thrown into a world where you mine for minerals and gems in order to craft a shelter, equipment, and weaponry. During daylight you are free to explore, chop wood, harvest plants, whatever you feel your project of the day should be. Come sundown is when the creatures lurk, and you must seek out shelter or fend them off in the dark in attempt to survive. Once you have a well fortified shelter you may choose to sleep through the night as long as no creatures can enter during that period of time.
Everything in the world is destructable, from the terrain to the animals. If you want to build a city in the sky that towers above the clouds, or dig hundreds of feet into the earth until you tap into lava, the world of Minecraft allows all of it. It's a true sandbox experience that has little limitations on what you can build or create.
I just played this for the first time upon it's release and i've been enthralled by it since, has anyone else played this game and what are your thoughts on it? Graphically the game may turn many away which is unfortunate because there's a very solid and original premise underneath the retro NES visuals. If you haven't tried it, check out the demo. It's not for everyone but if you get into it like I have you'll be happy to have tried it.
