Minecraft creator Notch has posted on his blog that the game will, if all goes according to plan, officially "release" on November 11 of this year. He notes that "the version we deem as the 'full version' won’t be very different at all from what the game was like a week ago ..." So, think of it as a morale booster.

"We’ll keep adding features after the release as well, so it’s really more of a milestone when we finally get rid of the Beta label, and some kind of goal for us to work towards," he writes. "It’s the same date as a few other games and movies, and the one I’m the most excited about is Skyrim, so that will be a nice reward for me if we actually manage to hit that date!"

As for the achievements- and statistics-introducing 1.5 update, release next week is looking likely. Bonus: it'll add weather effects, including things like periodic rain/snow fall, ice regrowing in colder biomes, and even thunderstorms.

Thunderstorms and creepers -- potentially at the same time. Shut. Down. EVERYTHING.

Did I ever tell you that as a child I was fascinated with the idea of ghost ships? Well, I was -- and I guess you could say that I still am in one way or another. I grew up reading about the accounts of mysterious vessels lik...more

First else Heart.Break() trailer reminds me it exists

Everyone remembers else Heart.Break(), right? Of course you do, because it was on my "Top 30 indies to look out for in 2013" list! There was very little information on the game at that point, and apparently I thought it woul...more
