Awe Inspiring & Inspirational
23 December 2012 | by See all my reviews

Just finished watching the film and all I can say was, inspirational. The film takes you on a journey from how the game first started and carries you through this parallel to the journey of notch, the creator of the game

It shows how one single man built nothing short of an empire. It gives real inspiration to those who are indie game developers or anyone who has a dream. Even if you aren't a Minecraft fan I can't see you could walk away from this without feeling that little bit of inspiration. It shows how the games popularity increasing grew through the last year. Giving views of those from the public as well as those who have supported Minecraft. Game developers give their humble opinions and talk about how Minecraft has made them go on to view game design and development in a different way.

It's great for those die hard Minecraft fans and a soon as I'd seen the credits roll all I wanted to do is log in and start playing. If you've never heard of Minecraft, this will make you want to at least try it, but even for a causal or non-gamer this inspiring and collective journey will leave a warm and fuzzy feeling inside. Nothing short of fantastic. 2PP has done a great job.
