Minecraft is a sandbox game created by Markus Persson, a.k.a "Notch". It is inspired by many games, especially Infiniminer. It has over 400,000 registered players.

There are 6 modes:
Creative: makes you build anything you want, single-player and multiplayer
Survival: a very basic version of Indev, where you have to defend yourself from monsters
Indev: a version which added a number of new features, including crafting and more monsters
Infdev: same thing as Indev except this version added an infinite playing surface

Multiplayer is a part of Creative mode, which allows you to build with other players in servers.
Unfortunately, there are "griefers" that destroy creations including yours.
A survival multiplayer was created in August 2010, which allows players to play Indev with other players.
A typical Minecraft conversation when a griefer comes to a server:

coolguy10: supergriefer54674 is greifed my house!!!!1111
supergriefer54674: lololololololhahahah
supergriefer54674 is banned!
Builder8: Pwned.

A Java based game that just kick ass. People who play it just keep digging all the day in a marvelous world. This game is made for real gamers, since it requires the same graphic card than Modern Warfare 2, and even. Of course, when you face a so visually great game, you immediatly get addicted. Minecraft is genious!
