What is Minecraft?

minecraft quote

Minecraft is a unique game, that combines the creativity of Sim-type games with fantasy and adventure elements. Minecraft is a bit like playing with Lego, and it’s also a bit like World of Warcraft.

You can play solo on your own machine, or log onto one of thousands of servers run by Minecraft fans around the world.

Mostly, Minecraft is whatever you want it to be. An adventure, a creative sandbox, or a bit of both; a shared experience or a solo one.
