Popular sandbox building and adventure game.

Overview

Minecraft allows players to build constructions out of textured cubes in a 3D procedurally generated world. Other activities in the game include exploration, gathering resources, crafting, and combat. Multiple gameplay modes are available, including survival modes where the player must acquire resources to build and maintain his or her health and hunger, a creative mode where players have unlimited resources to build and the ability to fly, and an adventure mode where players can create custom maps for other players to play.

Does this require Java to be installed on a Mac? If so, I am not going to bother.

The listing is inaccurate. It will not run on 10.6.8. It requires 10.8.

1.0.1 is the version of the launcher. The current game version is 1.8.1, I believe.
