Fenring:
I need to get around to joining a server, all the cool stuff happens there.

Also, it seems no one has posted the best trailer so far.

Just goes to show you that some of the best games need the least advanced graphics to thrive. Looks fun as hell. Can't wait to give it a try when the website is back up.

Hilarious. I wonder if the game allows you to do that to other houses as well. Then Yahtzee can say there is a game for arsonists as well. :P

lol i really want that game now.

Honestly watching the videos on YouTube is far more fun then playing the game if you have a life.

It takes so damn long to gather/mine/build especially for really cool stuff. There's not much challenge to surviving either, it's just for building stuff basically.

But it's only like 10-15 dollars so it's usually worth it.

Deadlock Radium:
I liked it when he said "Uhhmm, well.. That's all for now guys."

This. It was the perfect ending to a hilarious video.

Noooo! I tried it once. I lost days to it. It took being banned from my favourite server to get me to go and eat something!

That's really quite upsetting seeing all the work destroyed. Can you save in Minecraft? I doubt it somehow.

Now imagine this game with good graphics...

You can save when you exit basically (or hit escape). This means that if t happens, it really happens and you have to live with it. If you die you can respawn, but without the stuff you were carrying, which means you need to go and get it, which might be a bloody long journey sometimes.

You (at least I) spend the nights mining, and the days working outside.

Best E10 I've spent in a long time. Great fun,

Hahaha Minecraft is AWESOME.

In fact, I'm gonna go play some right now :)

It would be an Irishman that burned his own house down. xD

Though oddly, doesn't seem like alcohol was involved.

I saw what he did wrong. He built the fireplace fine, but the bit where he put the log had no stone underneath it.

So he was lighting a log on fire ON A WOOD FLOOR.

so, building houses out of stone was a good choice for me then `?
Havent tried multi yet, but im enjoying my current house.
the funny thing is, i have zombies in my basement, but what im really afraid of
is herobrine.

the thought of him having built some weird structure on the map makes me.. worried.

This game rules. I can't wait until the final version is released.

I dug deeper and deeper and then fell out of the map and died 0_O

EDIT: Now on about my 5th attempt. Finally survived a few nights...made a mini castle. This game is so addictive.

Wait...I missed lunch. I've been playing this all afternoon 0_O Damn.

FIREPLACE FAIL! Seriously funny...

oooooo what exactly is at the bottem? I just started playing it today, and the deeper i get, the more weird noises and music keeps playing? explanation please?

been playin this game for a few days now, and I really feel for him. That house = MANY HOURS OF WORK.

Still, funny as hell though.

This is why i ADORE minecraft!

I'm trying to decide what portion of Persson's 700k came from the fan-made trailer that Fenring posted. Maybe, 10 people?

Can I still get Minecraft for 10 dollars?

I would not be surprised.

THAT is why i built my house out of obsidian and rock

i just started playin it and unfortunately i lack the creativity to make anything fancy. lol so far i only got a "bunker" like shelter that i made with what i thought were bricks, but it turned out to be half steps (meh they work just as well)

It's having a free weekend while the servers are down. If you get the exe, you don't enter any account info or something like that and you'll be able to play for free; however, I think the sound files are removed because so many people were dl'ing it.

He went too deep without placing any torches, so a zombie spawned in a dark part of his mine. Mobs will spawn in any dark area, so lighting things is important.

So what is the purpose of this game?

What do you do in it?

Would appear from the trailer doodle....Survive...so like a single playerish Civ game...persay

This would be cool if they could also try and make like a handheld version (-shrug- i like the idea)

My friend built a castle ingraved into the side of a mounataion that flows lava waterfalls and this guy burns his house down in less than a minute? LOL! But seriously the WOODEN wall behind the fireplace caught first. He should've either put that fireplace away from any walls or built a stone wall over that part of the house.

I love looking through the pictures of the amazing things people make. I am not that advanced at it yet.

I really don't get this Minecraft thing, I tried the free version on the site and was bored out of my mind.

I burned down my minecraft house just last nite. I was like FUUUUUUUUUUUU-

My current project is to make lava walls to my house.
Ok ok not REALY lava walls more like glass walls with lava behind them
but its going to look awesome though.

This minecraft thing looks cool and kinda reminds me of dwarf fortress somehow?
Still have no clue what the hell it is though.. online or offline? free or paid game? or something in between?
Yeah, I checked the website but it didnt have any info or anything. Just a few download links =/

LOL.

Epic man, epic. I chuckled all the way as he was astonished. Especially when he said "You have got to be kidding me."

Epic win, right there.

It caught fire because the floor was wooden, so the fire spread from the block directly into the floor, so into the surrounding wood.

It was serendipitous that Pandora was playing "Smoke on the Water" as I loaded up the video. I'd only heard of Minecraft after Penny Arcade made mention of it, doesn't necessarily look like my kinda thing but it's fun that something accidental like a housefire can occur within it.

Now, aside from building and razing houses what does one do in this "game"?
