Minecraft is everywhere. It’s on phones, consoles, tablets and computers. It’s in homes, classrooms, colleges, the subway and nerdy dreams. This little game has blown up into a scale I don’t think any of us saw coming.
I hear kids talk about it on the playground when I’m hanging out with my son. That’s awesome. Especially for a game made by such a small team.
Do you own Minecraft yet? If not, what’s been stopping you?
