In case you’ve missed, for their birthday Minecraft gave a second life to their 2009 Minecraft Classic.
You just need to point your browser to the Minecraft Classic website, and without downloading anything, you can play for free. A keyboard seems the only requirement, so you can’t play on your smartphone or tablet. Sorry.
This means you’ll have to deal with a wonky user interface, be trapped with only 32 blocks to create with, and more bugs than the rainforest standard.
Minecraft Classic only allows you to play in Creative mode, and there is no Survival mode to face off with enemies. There is no way to save your game, either. Still, you can just send them the link to invite up to nine friends to join your game.

Back in 2009 Marcus Persson, also known as Notch, released what he had initially called “Cave Game.” This was published on the PC and appealed to people who liked the gaming worlds of code and design.

You can see this mechanic ‘s influence in games all through today. Other games before had players gathering resources, but usually not building something block by block directly with their own digital hands.
Now games like Skyrim, Terraria and many others have incorporated in their games and as part of different genres and experiences a fairly simple mechanic like this.
