Hi everyone. As you all know from Matt's post, decisions will be released in two day's time, at 9 PM on Thursday.
But because neither of us should be stressing out about that, this blog post is about something else entirely: Minecraft.
What is Minecraft? Quoth Wikipedia:
a sandbox building video game which allows players to build constructions out of textured cubes in a 3D world...The game is divided into two main modes, Alpha and Classic, where Classic is focused entirely on construction while Alpha additionally contains enemies, a health meter, and additional features and items.
Basically some Swedish guy named Notch got bored at his job as a game dev and decided to make a super-retro 8bit blocky construction / run away from zombies game.
But that doesn't really answer the question of what Minecraft is, so maybe this will:
I play alpha/survival, which means that during the day I run around and kill pigs and chop down trees and run away from creepers and during the night I hide away in my bunker and dig dig dig dig dig dig dig dig forever.
Others play creative mode, where you have infinite materials and no enemies and you just build ridiculous stuff like a scale model of the Starship Enterprise.
There really isn't anything else to this post. Minecraft is a fun silly game in which you can do fun silly things.
Minecraft chat below; if you post something cool in the comments I'll edit it into this post.
Not Minecraft, but it does talk about digging; if you begin feeling stressed out about decisions (or Minecraft zombies), just dim the lights and chill out to this Pogo Disney remix.
