Learning Minecraft #2

Pete Worth, Thunderbolt writes:
As I’ve self-imposed a blackout on Minecraft information, I was surprised to learn it’s not the saccharine building game I’d expected and is in fact a dreadful land of nightmares. I’ve upgraded to the full PC version and within 30 minutes of my first play I’d been shot dead by a skeleton archer, mauled to the afterlife by a zombie and exploded into pulped yams by a green tentacle-demon. Throw in tumbling off a cliff, scalding by lava and starving to death and Minecraft feels like playing Limbo – your character’s so vulnerable that every wrong step can mean annihilation. I seriously did not expect to be writing these things – I thought I’d be playing amongst cows and chickens, happily re-structuring the landscape, maybe I’d have built a really nice house by now. Instead, I now truly fear the night (which occurs after a mere 15 minutes) and the awful creatures under its cloak. (Minecraft, PC)
