Hello my lovelies

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
Castles galore!

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.


Hayden's Castle


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.

THat looks really good. Can we play it over the internet then, or it a local thing only?

And I'd love to join in when my internet gets uncapped (14th)

I have been playing when capped and it is fine.

You have to make sure you click on the game for it to work.

Matt, it is completely over the net Very Happy

This server is great. It saves everything you build (unless someone knocks it down of course!)

Yeah it would be fun if while I was making my huge pirate ship miniman didn't come and delete the entire thing. That would be rather fun.
