If you have been living under a blocky stone for the past couple of weeks, then you’ve probably haven’t heard of the rumor that Microsoft was going to buy Mojang, the creators of Minecraft. Today Mojang announced that the rumor is true and they were being bought by Microsoft for 2.5 Billion dollars. As someone who considers herself as part of the Minecraft community, this news is slightly upsetting to put it lightly. I fear that MS (Microsoft) will try to take cuts from Youtubers’ videos, take away the rights of modders, and take funds away from server admins.
This game has some real potential to it. The story is fascinating and though it says horror in the genre, it isn’t that scary. The basic outline is a robot AI core that has watched the humans on this spaceship die after being taken over by aliens.
