There has been a lot going on at home in the last month. Somewhere in the hustle and bustle I missed Minecraft 1.0 being released. I don’t know if you Minecraft, but I do. My wife Minecrafts, my family Minecrafts, our cats probably Minecraft.


I’m not going to get lost in all the great updates to this version. The big deal here is that Minecraft is finally out of Beta and is officially released. We’ve been playing the beta pretty much since it came out and run our own server. Updating the world we’ve built up over the last year was pretty fun, finally seeing our work fully polished.


For those unfamiliar with Minecraft it is a very simple game, easily accessible to non-gamers. The premise is that you start out with nothing in a fully craftable block-world. Your first task is to build or seek shelter because at night… monsters come out. The rest is up to you. If you’re the creative type Minecraft is an amazing canvas. There is literally no limit what you can craft with the elements around you. Engineers will feel at home with the amazing construction and mechanical capabilities.

Unfortunately version 1.0 means you’ve missed the beta pricing but it is still well worth money. Get it right now, you won’t regret it!  That is our server below:
