I Dig It: Live Action Minecraft

Corridor Digital are wizards, harnessing their powers to make live action movie-magics based on them there vidjagames. They've tackled Minecraft before but their new short, Diamonds are Forever, could be their best yet. I do wish it concentrated more on the stunning blend of blocky vistas with real landscapes rather than becoming an action movie, but maybe expecting a travel documentary or an absurdist comedy…

Modern! Minecraft Adds ‘Local Area Network’ Support

A proposed new technology will allow personal computers within the same building to share data with each other via a physical cabled connection. The innovation is believed to allow significantly better speeds and latency than existing 'online' connections, as well as less data loss, no risk of interference from local ruffians attacking nearby phone company equipment, little to no need for opening router ports and…

Block By Block: Modding Minecraft, Part 3

This is the third and final part of our Minecraft modding guide. Previously: part 1, part 2. *Roll of thunder, flash of lightning*. You thought these Minecraft mod walkthroughs were benign, helpful explorations into the fan contributions to Notch's masterwork, didn't you? Well I've been into the Moria-ish depths of the Minecraft mod world, you fools. I've seen what can be wrought from diamond, moulded…

Feature: a number of options to fiddle with at you leisure

Block By Block: Modding Minecraft, Part 2

In part ye firste I fiddled with Minecraft's fundamentals. This time it's the utilities that take the spotlight. I'd only planned on mentioning one or two in passing, but there's a huge number of handy extra addons that you can use . I've used them all at some point before even having to write words and words on Minecraft, so they're worth recapping, especially if…

Feature: Minecraft Mod Menagerie

Block By Block: Modding Minecraft, Part 1

Minecraft inspires you to make of it what you will, so on top of the game's blocky rebuildingness there's a mod-scene that does everything from minor tweaks to major overhauls. It seems like there's a mod for every block that the game generates, and picking through them is like trying to hunt for Herobrine. So I've once again delved into the mod community, into the…

Exactly What It Sounds Like: Minecraft DOTA

Well now, this is quite the thing. In its never-ending march to assimilate all the games, Minecraft has turned its gaping, block-toothed maw on DOTA. The resulting map (no mods required, amazingly) has it all: towers to defend, a colorful assortment of creep(er)s, and the single most overblown trailer soundtrack you'll ever hear. The mere act of its war drums caressing my ear drums transformed…

Notch In Space: 0x10c Revealed

Markus Persson's put a name and a description to the Elite-inspired space game he's been teasing Twitter about recently, and it's pretty obvious this is going to be a full-fat endeavour rather than another micro-project. 0x10c is the game's name, how it's pronounced is anyone's guess but I'm gonna go with 'Derek'. It's a reference to a programming error that caused space travellers (from an…

Idle Musing: The Joy Of Falling Through The Floor

However hard games try to create worlds, they remain artifice. They are stage sets. Painted boxes. And when you step outside them, you get to see how unreal that game world actually is. This, from time to time, can be a wonderful thing. Let's raise a glass to the strange lands that lie outside the game you were meant to see, that glitchy empire of…

Craft Your Own Minecraft In Craftstudio

Minecraft's influence on games has been rather impressive. Block by block, new games are emerging, willing to look like the creations of an over-eager child with Lego. But this is the first time I've seen an engine that's pulling the same trick. Craftstudio should feel like a soulless rip-off, but it's a genuinely cute, well made game-making tool. It's actually a game for making games,…

Minecraft Mod Super Pirate Battle Royale Reshapes Ships

I really tried write like a pirate for the opening of this post, but I started sounding like Snoop Dogg. I'd start with "yarrs" but end up adding "-izzle" to the end of words. It got surreal. So instead of being incredibly clever, I'm just going to give it to you straight: this is a Minecraft map where two battleships set to each other across…

Herd Cats, Farm Puppies: Minecraft 1.2

Minecraft 1.2 is here, bringing with it an assortment of features that made me go 'awwww', in that way that people do when they see an adorable baby animal playing with another baby animal of a different species. There's a good reason for me to mention baby animals because, to my mind, the most important additions in this version are puppies, which tame wolves will…

Mojang Making Moves To Support Minecraft Modding

We've just had a note passed to us, under the door, that says Minecraft developers Mojang are about to announce the four main bods behind Bukkit have "joined ranks" with the company. Bukkit would be the Minecraft server mod that made running Minecraft servers so much easier, and enormously improves mod support on the server side. The plan is to have the same flexibility on…

Pop A Portal In Minecraft

We'll just have to come to terms with rule #89: if it exists, it's in Minecraft. As proof RPS (RedstonePistonSpawner) readers, here's a look at the newly updated Portal gun mod that, when combined with the Portal 2 gels mod, manages to drop some Aperture Science all over Blockland, or Blockworld. What the hell is the name of the world that Minecraft creates, anyway? I'm…

Just Lego: Lego Minecraft Is A Real Thing

Yes, it's real and it can be pre-ordered here for $34.99/£34.99. Lego Minecraft goes on sale in "selected" Lego shops in the summer, and gives you a chunk of the world to play with. The Minecraft range of Lego (and that's just Lego, LEGO) will feature Steve and a creeper, as well your standard world building blocks from the game - stone, sand, wood, and…

Remaking Azeroth Brick By Brick In Minecraft

I once made the rather facetious remark that if Minecraft made infinite worlds then it would contain all other games within it. Why would I say such a thing? Because I am a stupid person masquerading as someone thoughtful. That’s why I wear two monocles. But there’s at least one part of that assertion that’s correct, thanks to Ramsesakama over on MMO-Champion, who’s attempting to…

D’Ore: Minecraft Introducing Cats, Cat Love

So then. I suspect the needle of Minecraft cuteness has swung way too far to the "d'aww" end of the meter with the introduction of tameable, breedable ocelots (which you can see emitting clouds of love-hearts in the video below.) This is a game with zombies and suicide-explosion beasts in! I demand more sinister threat. And I believe that it is only sensible, because horrors…

CryCraft: Mod Minecraft Into Crysis

Would you call Minecraft in the Crysis engine Mynecraft or Minecryft? I prefer the second, because the first could be a typo, whereas the only legitimate reason for coming up with the second is if there's a Crysis mod that adds Minecraft to it. Wait, there is! And it's called... what, 'Craftable'? Seriously?

Minecraft Is In Dire Straits

Mojang's block-building and survival game is somehow making do with a mere twenty million users, they revealed recently. (20,127,16. No, wait, 20,127,17. I mean 20,127,18. I mean 20,127,19. Oh, you get the picture). 20 million? Pathetic. Chump change. I don't know how they manage to stay afloat - I mean, all those Facebook game companies talk about having 180 million users or something like that,…

GOG, NVIDIA, Frozenbyte, Notch vs SOPA

Expect plenty more of these kinds of updates leading up to next week's web-wide SOPA protests: it's an enormously important issue for the future of the internet and everyone who uses it, so we're giving it our all. Also declaring themselves strongly against the online culture-trashing folly today are Minecraft-makers Mojang, who intend to make a right old song and dance about SOPA next week,…

Minecraft 1.1 And Much More For Mojang

This could be the year that Mojang stops meaning Minecraft and nothing but Minecraft. In an interview with Edge, CEO Carl Manneh says that there are two games in development that will be announced and possibly even be released as early as the first half of 2012. Minecraft creator Notch is working on one of these titles, having stepped back from lead development of his…
