My brother has introduced me to an awesome online game called Minecraft.
It looks like old Mario style graphics, but it is in 3D. You use various bricks to build whatever you like.
You can also smash everything.
The servers themselves are massive and what you can build can be enormous.
The game is in alpha mode, meaning it has just come out and it still hasn't got full functionality.
This game is really fun to play with a group of people, working together to build or to smash!
It is a bit hard to explain what this game is exactly like until you see it for youself.
Once the game is fully functional, it is going to cost to play. I think Spectrum members should take advantage of it being a free game now and have some fun.
Some awesome things I have seen built:
A giant Pikachu
A space shuttle
Build to enormous heights! Dig to the depths. Water, sponges, wood, bricks, lava, glass!
Here are a few screenshots. I was playing with Hayden earlier.
My attempt at building the Spectrum banner
The amazing depths of the game, build with something so simple.
Feel like playing?
I think if we had a big group of Spectrum people playing, it would be so much fun.
All dreams are within reach...all you need is direction and focus - Perplex
Paper is dead without words, ink idle without a poem. All the world dead without stories, without love and disarming beauty.
I'd climb to the edge of a mountain for you. I'll go to the ends of the world to find you. We'll dance in the shadows until we reach a breakthrough. All we need is a breakthrough.
