Feature: I mean, it worked with Illagers

5 Minecraft Dungeons features that should be in Minecraft

Minecraft Dungeons may have borrowed very little from its parent game in terms of features, sticking largely to the blockbuster construction game's aesthetics instead, but that's not to say it hasn't given plenty back. While Dungeons was being developed, according to executive director David Nisshagen in my interview with him, its team came up with illagers, a.ka. angry squidwards, in order to provide a staple…

Feature: A worthy pick

Minecraft Dungeons review

I knew Minecraft Dungeons was going to be fun when I played a couple of hours of the beta build last month. I knew this because, well, it was fun. It was the kind of fun you can fathom within about twelve seconds of starting a game, and the kind you know will be dependable in its simplicity, even if it might not last forever.…

Feature: ♬ We built this city on robust project management standards ♬

400 people spent a decade building a 1:1 city in Minecraft

It just doesn't make sense. Until you fullscreen the image above and peer closely, noticing the flat tones on the buses and the blocky curve on the roadway, you wouldn't expect it to have come from a game more commonly used to build eye-hurting failure hovels from ugly cubes of cobblestone. But alas, this is a screenshot from Minecraft, and it is a view over…

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…

The 12 most useful inventions in PC games

If you plumb the depths of human ingenuity you will resurface with a wet box of penicillin and 100 million bits of different-coloured plastic. We people are very good at making useful things, and then killing ourselves with them. But videogames, my friends. Videogames hold the solution to our self-destructive ways. That tech utopia your pal Start-up Stan is always talking about is in reach,…

Have a grand old time watching loads of scaffolding collapse in Minecraft

I'm a big fan of elaborate castle/tower builds in Minecraft. People manage to tease some spectacularly baroque excess from just a meagre few varieties of textured cube, and ten years after I first came across the game, I'm still seeing entirely new ideas every time I have a poke around for inspiration. Reddit user and YouTuber Kyle Blane, whose work I encountered today, is a…

This Minecraft map attempts to simulate social distancing during a pandemic

Are all you kids out there still playing Minecraft? Let's hope so, because some folks have made a Minecraft map to teach you younguns about how social distancing and healthcare services work together to beat a pandemic. It sounds a bit corny off the cuff but it does look pretty neat, actually, and although it's not a scientifically-accurate model, it might actually help teach some…

The 9 tastiest dinners in games

Everyone’s a cook now, is that it? A few weeks in lockdown and you’re all suddenly artisan bakers and Bon Appétit Kitchen presenters? Sorry, I don’t buy it. Put the chickpeas down, Jeff. We all know what happens when you let things “simmer”. However, there is a world in which your cooking really does impress. Where it comes out of the pot scrumptious and hot…

Minecraft’s RTX beta is out today, assuming you’ve the power to run it

It's time for that expensive RTX graphics card to finally pay off, readers. Starting today, you can now download Minecraft's RTX beta - a version of Mojang's literal block-buster that, with the help of the graphics tech folk over at Nvidia, lets you explore infinite worlds with high-tech ray-tracing effects. Hyper-realistic, perhaps? They're still cubes, mate. It's just that now, they're very quite nice-looking cubes…

Minecraft’s official ray-tracing update launches in beta this week

I’ve spent countless hours fiddling with Minecraft’s player-made shaders, trying to illuminate my builds with blinding lights to distract from their overall shonkiness. Mojang’s first step into making that sort of rendering official is coming this Thursday, bringing global illumination, shiny reflections, and more. There are a couple of requirements, however.

Fall in love with the Minecraft Harry Potter mod, in our gif tour

My owl has finally arrived and invited me to Hogwarts! He told me it was a hoot. It’s all a bit different nowadays, though. It’s shifted to a fully digital school. Instead of running headfirst at the first wall I see, I’m to enter via the Minecraft School Of Witchcraft And Wizardry, a remarkable recreation of Harry Potter’s past, including all the sights of that…

Hands-on preview: Minecraft Dungeons is an unexpected treasure

When Minecraft Dungeons was first announced, I thought it was a bit of an odd call. Dungeon crawlers are popular, and Minecraft is popular, but… a Minecraft dungeon crawler? Surely, I figured, a switch to isometric dungeoneering would lose all of Minecraft’s creative, construction-toy charm in translation, and I just couldn’t see Minecraft’s gently strange, cuboid world as an intuitive setting for a Diablolike lootstabber.…

Minecraft’s Nether update will have music by Celeste’s composer

I've not played Minecraft heavily in several years now, so when I logged in recently I was surprised by some new tunes as I walked about pestering livestock. There are even more new tracks coming in the sandbox game's big Nether Update, this time created by composer Lena Raine whose excellent sounds you may have heard in Celeste. You can check these tunes out now…

Get enchanted by this Harry Potter RPG in Minecraft right now

Holy Hogwarts, look at this entire dang Harry Potter-themed RPG built inside Minecraft. This mod has been in the works for a while, building on a huge Hogwarts Minecraft build from several years back. What I enjoy most is how reminiscent it is of the (not great, as I remember) Harry Potter games of the earliest aughts. The entire modded adventure is now available to play…
