Please note I'm currently working on the new site. I didn't want to take the site offline though, so you can still visit it. However me working on the site while it's still online means a lot of the pages will appear wonky. But not to worry, it won't take too long. Happy

Recorded this some time ago. Brandon made a cool puzzle on our server, and I was the first to try it out. Enjoy watching me die! Happy

The New Yorker has a great interview with Kurt J. Mac, a man who is trying to walk to this point, the end of Minecraft's world. He started his quest in March 2011, and is still going.

There's a place in Minecraft called the Far Lands. It's the point where the game's code, which builds each world procedurally, starts to collapse under the weight of its own sums, breaks apart and glitches out.

The sad/amazing part is that we know how far away the Far Lands are, at least in Kurt's build of the game (newer versions of the game have had the "feature" removed). From the point at which you start your game, they're 12,000km away. In his three years of walking, Kurt has travelled 700km. He's...got some walking ahead of him.

Well this is one way to spend your life...

Read the rest of the article on Kotaku, or go staight to the New Yorker for the interview!

It’s time for an update again!

+ Added Twitch.tv broadcasting integration (see below)
* Improved Realms menus
* Fixed render distance above 8
* Various bugs have been taken care of

To use the Twitch broadcasting you need to link your Mojang account with your Twitch account. This only works with migrated accounts (in other words, if you login using your email address instead of your username, you can use the Twitch integration). The linking is done via the account settings, which can be found here:

https://account.mojang.com/me/settings

To start broadcasting, simply press F6 while playing. You find more options in the menus.

The integration currently only works on Windows Vista or later, and on Mac OS X Lion (10.7) or later.

You can always get more in-depth development updates on the official Mojang blog!
