History and Evolution
Minecraft came into being in 2009 as a result of a Swidish game programmer and designer Markus Persson. He think of this game and started working on this idea while he was working as a Game developer for Jalbum and to pursue his idea, he found a company named Mojang, after he realized the fact that his part time idea became his full time job.

An interesting thing in this gameplay is that there are no specific rules and missions for the player, no hard defined rules and as a result of no fix game strategy, there is no gameplay demo available online. It has been left to the game player to play at his own will. On top of that, developers with programming skills are open to make changes in the game which has been allowed by Minecraft in the form of code written for them. There are built in maps which are aimed to build the game on will. Contrast to the traditional gameplay which allows the user to use cheats and hacks, Minecraft focused on real imagination gameplay by allowing user to change the game much to his imagination.
The term which is used usually for Minecraft is a ‘sandbox game’. The term refers the fact that user can create his own scenes and stages according to his experiences, using the building blocks, discovering resources on modes available for resource collection by taking into account their own imagination.
