Minecraft is an open-world video game released in 2009 by Swedish programmer Markus “Notch” Persson and later developed and published by Mojang. Minecraft creation and construction abilities allow players to build constructions by combining textured cubes in a 3D world. Other activities in the game include searching, gathering resources, crafting and fighting.
Explore infinite worlds and build everything from the simplest of homes to the grandest of castles. Play in creative mode with unlimited resources or mine deep into the world in survival mode, crafting weapons and armor to fend off dangerous mobs. Create, explore and survive alone or with friends on mobile devices or Windows 10.
The group of gamers from the US created 30,000 blocks, spread over an area of 870 km2, taking more than 10 years to create this city.

The game has 3 main types of gameplay: Survival, Creative and Adventure. You can also play online or play offline, online players create many different types of play.
- Survival mode: players have to search for resources, have a health bar, can be hungry and have to fight monsters who want to attack players that often appear at night. The highest goal of this game mode is to defeat Ender Dragon.
- Creative game mode (Creative): your items have an infinite number. You also have no blood, and this ability to counterbalance this world-type, largely depends on creativity.
- Hardcore mode: when you die, you won’t be revived and you’ll have to erase the world.
- Adventure mode (Adventure): This mode is quite similar to survival mode but has the limit that you can not destroy, place blocks, you must have the right tools to reach or destroy blocks.
