Minecraft: Innovation through Simplification

Gi - Just what is it about Mojang‘s Minecraft that captured the hearts of over 20 million people? Is it the simplistic charm? The retro graphics? The appeal to imagination and creativity? Or, does it run deeper, touching on man’s constant struggle to battle the elements while reshaping the world around him? Whatever the reason, one can’t argue that Minecraft has taken the world by storm. The real question is how an indie title like Minecraft reached such enormous popularity in such a short time. (Minecraft, PC, Xbox 360)
