Here are some facts on Minecraft! Minecraft is a sandbox game created and designed by Swedish game designer Markus "Notch" Persson, and later fully developed by Mojang.
Minecraft received praise from critics and has won numerous awards and accolades. Social media, parodies, adaptations, merchandise and the MineCon convention played large roles in popularizing the game. It has also been used in educational environments, especially in the realm of computing systems, as virtual computers and hardware devices have been built in it. As of February 2017, over 121 million copies have been sold across all platforms, making it the second best-selling video game of all time. In September 2014, Microsoft announced a deal to buy Mojang and the Minecraft intellectual property for US$2.5 billion, with the acquisition completed two months later. Other games in the franchise, such as Minecraft: Story Mode, have also been released. Throughout the course of the game, players encounter various non-player characters known as mobs, consisting of animals, villagers and hostile creatures. Passive mobs—such as cows, pigs, and chickens—can be hunted for food and crafting materials. They spawn in the daytime, while hostile mobs—such as large spiders, skeletons, and zombies—spawn during nighttime or in dark places, such as caves. Some hostile mobs, such as zombies and skeletons, burn under the sun. Some creatures unique to Minecraft have been noted by reviewers: the creeper, an exploding creature that sneaks up on the player; and the enderman, a creature with the ability to teleport and pick up blocks.
