A talented developer called Markus Persson is the man behind Minecraft; the indie sandbox building game. He created Minecraft in May 2009. If you don’t know what Minecraft is, then I suggest you do a video search for Minecraft Worlds, and you’ll soon get an idea of what the game is about – basically you can build anything you desire by destroying and placing blocks of various different materials. Minecraft can be played online and offline, the game simulates both the day-time and night-time, during the night-time mode monsters appear, so make sure you have the safety of a fortress built to ensure you remain protected! With well over 2 million people having now bought a Minecraft account, it’s clearly a great game!
Minecraft is all about construction, that’s what you do throughout the game. You will find that the Minecraft world is built of lots of cubical blocks on a fixed grid pattern, representing a number of different materials, including glass, stone, dirt, water and wood. The avatar that you play as has a pickaxe, which allows him to destroy these blocks, as well as lay new ones. There are no restrictions on where your avatar can move around in the Minecraft world, but, blocks, items and objects are only allowed to be placed at their relative spots on the game grid.
Although Minecraft is still in beta development, you can still purchase a copy for $25, but, if you don’t have $25 to spare, you can actually get yourself a free Minecraft account in exchange for filling out a couple of short surveys from different websites. It doesn’t take too long to do (you could do it in 30 minutes).
As with most games these days, Minecraft has a multiplayer version and a single player version.
Minecraft is a game that any gamer should consider. If you haven’t got a Minecraft account yet, then get one, it’s worth it, if you don’t have the spare funds then get a free Minecraft account from a site like the one I mentioned earlier, just complete a few short surveys and you get your free Minecraft account. The game is this popular for a reason! Explore your creative side, build your own world, your imagination is the only limitation.
Now, many people have asked me how these websites are able to give Minecraft accounts away for free, and the answer is simple really – they’re not. They get paid for the surveys you complete, and then they use this money to purchase your Minecraft account, so you get a free account, and they earn a few bucks too. Simple!
After you’ve earned your free Minecraft account, if you find that you like the idea of completing surveys for free stuff, then keep earning! That same website allows you to exchange your points to redeem vouchers to spend at online shops, as well as free steam games, vouchers to eBay, Argos, Amazon, all for free. Sure, it might take half an hour of your time to complete enough surveys to earn your free game, but I would bet my last dollar that you will play that game for a lot longer than 30 minutes!
On a final note… make that search for “Minecraft worlds”, after checking out a few videos you’re bound to want in, and you know where to go to get your free account!
