One of the things I learned from ‘World of Love’ was that it’s really important to keep checking out other games. I have had a tendency to just work away on my own, because what I really like to do is create games, not play them.
With a 9 yr old and a 7 yr old in my house, I have a willing team of researchers in place, who are more than happy to work for free if I pay for the games
So yeah, this Minecraft thing I keep hearing about. Let’s get it..
3 days later: wow, it’s pretty awesome. I can see on many levels why this game is such a success. Casual, exploratory, non-confrontational, creative. Harry, Andrew and I all play the game differently and all enjoy it on different levels: Harry is an ‘achiever’ who wants to craft and gather one of every possible block; Andrew is a creator who wants to build houses; and I’m an explorer who wants to find vast underground caverns and hollow them out as tourist attractions.
