Minecraft is a sandbox survival video game developed by Mojang.
It was officially released in November, 2011, after multiple beta and alpha updates were pushed, dating back to May of 2009.
- June 2009 update 0.23 brought forth the multiplayer aspect of the game, with the ability to play worlds with other users
- December 2009 update 0.30 added the survival gamemode, giving players the option to choose between survival and creative gamemodes.
- During the Alpha stage from June 2010 to December 2010, users had to begin paying for access to the game. The prices during this time were relatively cheap.

Creative mode allows you to fly around, place blocks, and make structures without needing to gather resources.
Survival mode requires you to gather resources, while also killing mobs to keep your food levels high and survive during the night against Skeletons, Creepers, Zombies, and Spiders.
Adventure mode is similar to the survival mode, except you cannot break or place blocks. This gamemode is used for adventure type maps made by the community which can be downloaded here.
The spectator mode was recently added and can only be achieved if you have permission to use /gamemode The command will not show spectator as an option but typing "/gamemode spectator" will give you the ability to enter spectator mode. You will appear invisible to all users, being able to travel through blocks at a fast speed. You cannot break or place blocks, and you cannot attack anything.
