Full Answer

Minecraft is an original game created by programmer Markus Persson. It's design was influenced by other resource-collection games such as Zachtronic Industry's Infiniminer. To develop the game, Persson formed Mojang AB, a software development company, in 2009. The decision to make the game playable from the earliest alpha versions of it allowed users to provide continuous feedback that steered development. Minecraft entered a beta version of its production in December 2010, and it was officially released in November 2011. The game has notably won awards and accolades from the Game Developers Conference and IndieDB, even prior to the full release of the game.

Minecraft creates a procedurally-generated world that the player interacts with by collecting a wide variety of resources, which are used to construct different tools. The player travels through the different biomes the game creates, including tundra, desert, ocean, forest and plains regions. A dynamic diurnal timekeeping system switches the in-game world periodically to night, prompting the emergence of hostile monsters seeking to kill the player.
