Minecraft Earth is shutting down this summer

It's almost time to say goodbye to Minecraft Earth, because Mojang Studios are shutting it down for good on June 30th. It's not all doom and gloom, though.

This afternoon, I've been mucking about with Minecraft's new 20w45a snapshot, which introduces the first tranche of goodies from the upcoming Cliffs & Caves update.

Feature: The incredible sculk

v1.17 Minecraft is getting even more complicated. However: axolotls.

So, as you might already know, there is another big Minecraft update on the way - version 1.17, a.k.a "Caves & Cliffs".

Here are three ways to turn Minecraft into a computer inside your computer

The more I see of Minecraft, the more I'm convinced that we all live in a simulation. Possibly one that's also inside Minecraft, and running some fancy shaders. I don't make that claim lightly.
