Everything You Need to Know About Minecraft

Minecraft is a fun and adventurous sandbox video game. It's a creative and active game with tons of available modes, and a variety of available activities that will keep you occupied for hours at a time.

Minecraft allows players to use their imagination and be free to build all kinds of 3D objects from a variety of cubes. They can also roam free and explore the never-ending map of the game, gather resources, craft weapons and other items and engage in combat.


One of the most popular modes is the survival mode, where you must require enough resources to stay alive, be protected and maintain your health.

The great thing about this game is that it doesn't necessarily have certain goals you need to achieve, giving you the freedom to organize your gameplay however you wish. You can engage in combat, build objects, or simply choose to explore the map and do whatever seems fun.

What Makes Minecraft So Popular

The consistency of sales since its release is something really remarkable. Minecraft still holds a top spot as one of the most played games in the world.

Even from the start when the game was still a work-in-progress, prone to breaking and with rudimentary graphics, it was still popular and played by millions of people around the globe. Now the game is available on almost all platforms, and can even be played on Nintendo Switch.
