Minecraft is a sandbox construction game created by Markus Persson and is currently in pre release alpha. Minecraft development started around the 10th of May 2009, pre-orders for the full game started being accepted on the 13th of June.
The game involves players creating and destroying various types of blocks in a three dimensional environment. The player takes an avatar that can destroy or create blocks, forming fantastic structures, creations and artwork.
It's €25 and it's bloody brilliant.
Minecraft is a sandbox game. A world, made out of lots of different types of blocks, is dynamically generated for you. The overarching goal is to survive, and to do this you can interact with your environment in an ever-growing number of ways. Explore caves in search for ores to mine, chop down forests, dig land to redirect rivers, combine raw materials in a furance to make special types of block, plant and harvest crops, hunt pigs and sheep, and much more.

For how to make tools, check out:
-Never take anything into an unsecured mine that you would hate losing. Stash your diamonds and precious ores in treasure chests nearby, at the very least.
-Never ever mine the square directly above or beneath you. You might unleash a suffocating column sand or a torrent of lava, or you may plummet into a cave full of monstery death.
-You must use a pick to mine. If you don't, you'll just destroy blocks without getting any stone/ore.
-You must use the appropriate pick to mine certain ores. You need at least a stone pick to mine iron, and at least an iron pick to mine almost everything else.
-Obsidian can only be mined with a diamond pick.
-Lava is extremely dangerous, a single contact with a lava square will usually burn you to death. Carry a bucket of water on you at all times, and quickly douse yourself if you catch fire.
-You neutralize lava by pouring water onto it. This will turn lava springs into obsidian and lava flows into cobblestone.
-Lava will destroy any items that touch it. You can throw unwanted inventory items into lava for this purpose, and be wary of mining blocks directly above lava flows.
-It's very easy to get lost in deep cave complexes. Find a method of marking your trail.
-Bring an excess of wood with you for deep mining excursions, as it's the only material you'll never find naturally in mines.
-Buckets of lava can be dumped into rooms to destroy monsters very effectively, but the lava will also burn away the loot they drop.
My little miners paradise, found a massive cave in so decided to build by it, going to explore it tommorow.
