Minecraft is an indie sandbox video game originally created by Swedish game designer Markus "Notch" Persson. The game is about breaking and placing blocks in a 3D procedurally generated world.
Gameplay in Minecraft is very open ended. Players can use a variety of tools to build constructions out of textured cubes in a 3D world. The player is able to place and remove blocks of various types. The environment is procedurally generated. So, no two worlds will ever be identical.
Minecraft uses a 16-bit color palette, with a resolution of 64x64 pixels. The game does not specify a fixed resolution until it is started. The default size is 640x480 pixels.
The game is fairly replayable. The player can explore the world, collect items, and battle monsters. The game has multiplayer mode, which allows for players to create worlds together or engage in player vs. player combat.
Minecraft is an addictive, creative, and open-ended game. The game is free, and it has a multiplayer mode. It also has some disadvantages.
