Given Free Rain: Minecraft 1.5 Patch, Demo

Do you have a friend, colleague or enemy who's somehow escaped the marvellous timesink that is Minecraft? More than likely they've said it's "Not for them" without even playing it, am I right? Like they're the sodding Professor X of PC games or something. In which case the first order of business today is to point them at the 4Mb demo that Notch has just made for PC Gamer. You can get it here.

Second of all, the decidedly moist 1.5 update that adds rain, thunderstorms, snow and achievements, as well as official mine cart Boosters and mine cart detector rails has arrived. In case you missed the video of the new weather effects first time around, you can watch it again after the jump.
