Closure For Steve: Minecraft's Finale

Minecraft is, hilariously enough, due for release next week. The game that we've all been playing for the last two years will finally be granted its version 1.0 tag, but those dedicated four million who already own it can try out a near-complete version right now. Mojang have slipped out a pre-release build of version 0.9, including the fabled boss fight. That boss is, of course, an Ender dragon. Dragons are proper cool these days, see. It's like Anne McCaffrey never happened.

Try the early build here. All that's left from hereon in is polish and bug-squashing, apparently. Hmm, does this mean we need to do a 'Wot I Think: Minecraft'? That seems far too weird, somehow. It'd be like running 'Wot I Think: Breathing.'
