More on Minecraft's Adventure Update

The Word of Notch has a "trickle" of information about the eventual version 1.8 "Adventure Update" for Minecraft, the sandbox adventure game:
The update is pretty big, and will change a lot of how Minecraft is played, focusing on making exploration and combat much more rewarding, and bringing in a bigger sense of adventure to the game.

Already implemented are new complex terrain features, at least one new mob, some interesting new combat mechanics, a new lighting engine, and some experimental new gameplay ideas. To come is more interesting farming, bigger incentives to explore, and npc villages.

Dev, must you be such a broken record?



click your name and search "+minecraft +scale"

Everytime someone says something about him having tons of money, that makes me want to correct them He has a chunk, but not nearly as much as people assume, and its going to go fast the way he's spending it.

Plus, I see businesses having problems with economies of scale all the time. cliff at positech games is having issues with it for instance, he's tired of the indy $10 pricing and wants to branch out. More power to him, but if he charges $30+ he'd better have a game that's worth paying that much with better everything (i.e. more resources invested into making it) or I'll pass it by.

there are plenty of other companies that will rip the idea off and make a clone. First to market doesn't always mean best of breed.
Terraria?
I've purchased both that and minecraft, and to be honest, I've enjoyed and played more Terraria than minecraft. Plus, the devs show good support for the product, patching fast and adding lots of content. Release version had a couple fairly serious bugs, such as crashing when exiting settings menu. They fixed that within days. Now they've done 2 big content patches within a month, so I'm impressed.
