Minecraft is a sandbox construction game created by Markus Persson, also known online as 'Notch', and Mojang AB. Players explore a randomly-generated infinite world made up of cube-shaped blocks forming a landscape filled with lakes, mountains, forests, caves and deserts. To survive the resources of the world must be exploited to cook food, craft weapons and armour, build shelters and kill monsters.
