Minecraft is a game developed by Swedish programmer and designer Markus Persson. It is one of the most popular video games ever made, yet getting started with it may be difficult. And for many who are not familiar with it, not only playing it but even comprehending what makes Minecraft so popular gets difficult. This is because it is a very different type of game and seeing its images or reading the game description may not at all give you the idea of why millions are addicted to this game.
Most games are based on a particular storyline which is set by the developers. When you play the game you follow that storyline, make progress according to it, reach an end and the game ends. Everything that you experience during the game is already set. There may be many games that offer you choices, but even in those games, all the choices you can make, and what effect they will have on the game are all set in stone by the developers. The game progresses in almost the same way for all the players. But Minecraft is not like that. Minecraft is one unique game in which totally independent to do whatever he wants. And also everybody can have very different experiences from the game.
The game was never meant to be played in a linear manner, and therefore, there are relatively few restrictions on what you may do in Minecraft. You can protect a kingdom (or the whole planet), explore monster-filled caves, build a functional metropolis equipped with electric lights, or design a crazy rollercoaster, but the game may also be a lot of other things if you want it to. The key to Minecraft’s popularity is the toolkit that enables players to customize the game the way they want, whether it is exploring, building, surviving, or all of the above.
