Minecraft is donating today’s profits to racial justice causes for Juneteenth

Profits from sales of Minecraft and Minecraft Dungeons on digital stores today will be donated to several racial justice causes, in celebration of Juneteenth. The annual event on June 19th marks the day in 1865 that a Union army general formally announced to Texas that all Texan slaves were now free, and has grown to be celebrated countrywide. Mojang have also switched one of the…

Minecraft Dungeons is getting cross-platform multiplayer

I'm really enjoying Minecraft Dungeons, and my only real criticism of it right now is that there just aren't enough levels to explore. That won't be the case as of next month, however, because the game's first DLC, Jungle Awakens is dropping in July. On top of that, Mojang have announced they're working on bringing cross-platform multiplayer to Minecraft Dungeons, as well as a bunch…

Minecraft Dungeons has a secret cow level

In homage to one of the all-time action-RPG greats, Minecraft Dungeons has a secret level where you can fight herds of murderous cattle. Mojang's own action-RPG launched this morning, and folks have already discovered a nod to Diablo's infamous cow level, where wizards will be sent to mow down hordes of mooing mobs sprouting mushrooms. Killing cows: a cornerstone of the genre.

Minecraft Dungeons is out now

Maybe there's not much Minecraft in Minecraft Dungeons, but there is a pretty decent action-RPG or so I hear. Mojang's click-click-click-click-clicking dungeon crawler launched today, with nary a block to mine or tree to punch but some weird and fun builds to experiment with. I'm up for an ARPG where one armour perk gives you a pet bat.

What other game should have a spinoff in a totally unlikely genre?

After a brief moment of uncertainty during its first reveal, I had a pretty good feeling that Minecraft Dungeons would be some nice and breezy block-clad fun. Until I'd seen it though, turning Minecraft into Diablo's little brother was not an obvious experiment—at least not to me. What other game series should get a spinoff into some totally unlikely other genre?Minecraft Dungeons isn't out until tomorrow,…

Mojang celebrated Minecraft’s 11th birthday with a new name, Mojang Studios

Mojang? Never heard of them. Mojang Studios? Oh, the Minecraft and Minecraft Dungeons folks? Them I do know. Yes, they've tweaked their name a tiny bit again, now becoming Mojang Studios because there are several studios doing several things. And because corporate types get a bit bored and antsy if they're not allowed a rebranding every few years. Yes, they do have a corporate rebranding…

Mojang's Minecraft Dungeons has seen some setbacks due to the Covid-19 pandemic, pushing back its release. It's not a huge delay: the launch is now on May 26th, when previously they'd said Minecraft action-RPG spin-off would be out by the end of April. And now you have a firm date.

Minecraft Dungeons shows off co-op and traps in new developer diary

Beloved no-longer-indie game Minecraft is dabbling in all sorts of new genres. It was already re-imagined as a narrative adventure in the spinoff Minecraft: Story Mode series and, if you hadn't heard, will be delving into dungeon crawler territory in April. Mojang developers released a new video today to talk more about co-op play and procedural levels in Minecraft Dungeons.

Minecraft Dungeons opens beta signups and introduces its plot

What ever could cause the gentle builders and farmers of Minecraft to beat their ploughshares into swords and go on a murderous quest? Apparently Minecraft Dungeons does have a story to explain this, according to the game's opening cinematic, as shown during MineCon over the weekend. Perhaps more relevantly to people who wanna murder mobs with their pals and yoink loot, Mojang have also opened…

Minecraft: Dungeons will dungeon-crawl through the blockworld

A new Minecraft spin-off game will delve into the blockworld as a dungeon-crawler in 2019, developers Mojang announced this weekend during their MineCon fan event. Minecraft: Dungeons is its name, and whacking monsters is its game. Inspired by "classic dungeon crawler games", they say, it'll send up to four players to whack and stab and thwipp and zap through Minecrafty levels and monsters, grabbing whatever…
