Just died for the first time and am now as hooked as I was the first time I died playing Demon's Souls.  This concept is simply incredible.

Discuss.

Minecraft, yays! :D

And we're getting an update tomorrow!

Love it! :D Though I don't really care for having heart attacks every 5 minutes so I play on peaceful. :P Currently working on making a little mini-city in single player, though I haven't been playing much lately due to being sucked back into WoW and the fact that Minecraft now likes to crash every half hour on my laptop. :-\

And I shall love to discuss it more. After the meeting I have in 10 minutes. :P

Its amazing that the guy who made this one game in his free time made a million off it, just by licencing to various places.

At some point I'm going to figure out how to set up a server and start working on re-creating the Green Isles and then everybody can come by and play around.

And I now have a server up and running for this - send me a PM if you want to come and play around and as soon as I figure out a couple more basic organization things and rules we can start playing around.

That sounds awesome. I was going to make a flash top down tile based green isles multiplayer but this is so much better. Let me know where to sign up.

I'm working on getting the game. I lack a credit card of my own, and this creates difficulties with uncooperative parents...:(

I'll work on getting some more people in probably tomorrow - today's just been for messing around a bit and figuring out how to kill a lava spring when I spawned the wrong item type and pulled a "Wonder what this does?" in the middle of an island...

Update - Crisis averted, though it did make the spawn area easy to see in the dark, but probably would have been somewhat annoying for newcomers to start off their visit in a lava spring.  If I can get the server to function properly while I'm at work tomorrow I'll let folks come in and start work on some islands.

Update 2.0 - Looks like it's not going to happen from work, our router here is quite a bit more complex and I can't seem to get the port forwarding working the way I want it to - if I figure it out later I'll update again but for now the world will only be online while I'm at home.

And I now present to you Minecraft Graham:

I've been busy with TSL stuff today so I didn't get the server up and going at home, but tomorrow I will and a couple of you have already asked for invites and will be welcomed in as construction begins.  So far I have a beach.
