In which video game do players explore a blocky, pixelated world, extract raw materials and build structures?
Minecraft is a video game created by Swedish developer Markus Persson, released by Mojang in 2011 and purchased by Microsoft in 2014. It is the single best-selling video game of all time, selling over 180 million copies across all platforms by late 2019, with over 112 million monthly active players. Minecraft is critically acclaimed, winning numerous awards, and has been described as one of the most influential and greatest video games of all time.
In Minecraft, players explore an intentionally blocky, pixelated, procedurally-generated 3D world, and may discover and extract raw materials, craft tools, build structures or earthworks, and, depending on a game mode, can fight computer-controlled foes, as well as either cooperate with or compete against other players in the same world.
