Warner Brothers to make MineCraft movie following Success of The Lego Movie

Well, folks, this was bound to happen sooner or later right? Warner Brothers has inked a deal with the Creator of MineCraft and head of the Game Developer Studio Mojang, , Markus “Notch” Perssons, who lives in Sweden, to make a movie about the popular Community Brick-Building Game, MineCraft. When this bit of news popped up in my Twitter Feed, I thought it was yet another attempt by Hollywood to make another Mortal Kombat or Resident Evil, the last set of movies adapted from Games I knew that were commercially successful. You known, a movie based on a popular Video Game. Suggestions have been flying with regards to the Xbox’s Halo universe being made into a movie since 2005…..but without a single reel of film actually being used to make same. But it wasn’t as ironically, as Markus Pers...

Map of Great Britain in Minecraft is a Brick Builders Dream Landscape made Real

“We think we may have created the largest Minecraft World ever built based on real-World data. The resulting map shows the massive potential, not just for using Minecraft for computer technology and geography purposes in schools, but also the huge scope of applications for OS OpenData too.” Graham Dunlop, OS Innovation Lab manager in an interview with the BBC (British Broadcasting Corporation) Minecraft, the indie Social Gaming hit that hails from Sweden has been making gentle strides as a Social Brick Building Game since I last penned Minecraft Apple iPhone and iPad making brick building Games Social.

Minecraft has in November 2011AD gone to the Apple iPad and Apple iPhone as a downloadable customized official app according to website CNET. This in keeping with my peepers could see back then last year in my article MineCraft – Indie hit is Social Gaming’s Cinderella. First last year’s stale news. As of December 2nd 2011AD, Mojang, the developer group headed by Markus “Notch” Persson is seeing a few changes as well.

MineCraft – Indie hit is Social Gaming’s Cinderella

I rarely write short articles. Let alone about Video Gaming. But MineCraft is waaay too addictive for anyone with lots of idle time to put aside, so I decided to put pen to paper and take a stab at explaining why MineCraft is the Gaming Cinderella of Social Gaming. MineCraft’s gameplay is a lot like Myst or even Riven, a new release for which was review on this very blog by Kelroy in the article aptly titled Rift Beta Impressions. It is a role-playing Social Game involving a rather plain looking environment which reminds me of those old Mario Games with the block-like environment, only in 3D, LEGO Land Style.
