My first blog post -minecraft-

When starting a blog about indie gaming there is one game that towers over all the other games out there, you know the game i am talking about...this game is minecraft. Starting this blog i knew i had to talk about minecraft, it's not that i don't like the game (believe me, i have spend a good share of hours punching trees), i just feel everybody knows the game already and there is not that muchs to say that you do not already know. Oh, what do you say? You don't know minecraft.. well lets asume you dont, i will explain. 
 When you start the game you are alone.. it is morning and you have nothing on you. In the night there will be monsters who will try and kill you so you must defend yourself. Make armor or hide in a house. But you just started and you have nothing at all. Step one, get some wood by punching trees. Turn the wood into sticks, get coal and make some tourches. The night will probably come soon so you must hide fast, dig a hole in a wall, light it up with tourches (so there will be no monsters spawning), and wait the night out. You might think, what is the point of this game? Well... actually there isn't one. You can adventure to new worlds, discover huge caves, create amazing castles, or whatever you want. There is no goal, so you can really do what you want. If you look on the internet you will find people who made amazing structures, made only by their imagination and a lot of time. This is not all. There also is a multiplayer option. It is the same as before but with more people, and believe me this changes the game completely, and is muchs more fun. 

Pro's: There are no limits, only your imagination. Can be played with more people. The developer still makes updates ( and this will continue for a long time, i gues). 
Con's: After playing it for a while ( i'm talking a long time), it gets boring and it becomes very stale. There is no goal, and i know some people will not like this. 
Price: 15 euro's (it is still in beta now, it will cost 20 euro's whenn the alfa begins.)

I would say it is an 9,2/10 because i have had ALOT of fun with this game and i am pretty sure you will like it too.

Happy gaming,
