Most of the teens I follow on Twitter are so addicted to this one PC/Mac game: Minecraft. When I got wind of news that a version of it is IN the works for the iPhone/iOS, I thought I should post about it: Minecraftapp.net:
From Wiki: “Minecraft is a sandbox building game which allows players to build constructions out of textured cubes in a 3D world. It is currently in development by Markus “Notch” Persson on the Java platform. The gameplay is inspired by Dwarf Fortress, RollerCoaster Tycoon, Dungeon Keeper, and especially Infiniminer.”
You can follow the development on Twitter. From the looks of it, this game is NOT a hoax, but it’s definitely an official port of the game. Many people are questioning the validity of the app’s pay model since it MAY NOT require a Minecraft account. That of course can be considered pirating.
Let’s hope the Minecraft people see this app, and maybe they can work together. A lot of people are addicted to the game and want portability, so why not put it out there officially?
Do YOU like Minecraft? Would YOU like it on your iPhone?
