Minecraft in a nutshell

Minecraft is a sandbox game with elements characteristic for survival and RPG games interwoven. The whole fun hinges on exploring a randomly generated world and shaping it in an unrestrained way. The opportunities in the game are numberless and they range from crafting of intricate architectural structures, through crafting items with the use of resources and materials, through exploration of caverns or even the other dimensions. The multiplayer mode allows you to play together with your friends and also develops commercial possibilities, as well as, cooperation or fight and competition.
