Minecon is done and dusted (no, we weren’t there – the RPS private zeppelin was in for servicing that week, so we couldn’t make it out to Vegas). Anyone go? If not, here’s a taste of what it was like, with the lavish, jokey keynote speech – featuring a history of Minecraft, a specially-commissioned animated short film documenting a day in the life of Steve, amateur dramatics, and appearances from all sorts of folk, including that woman with the pink hair, the Yogscast chaps and some guy in a hat called Markus. While witnessing such fervour around an indie game about building stuff is more than a little odd, it’s all very sweet and genuinely celebratory.
