Minecraft is a new game which offers tools and materials that produces its own gameworld by constantly destructing and reconstructing it.  The game world of Minecraft consists of cubic shapes (voxels). Players can get these blocks to inventory via mining, farming, hunting, digging, cutting or by simply exploring the broader game world. These blocks can be used in the production of new tools, including building or farming materials, weapons, armors.  The infinite possibility of destruction and construction of blocks offers not only mobility, but also motivates further creative potential of player’s imagination. Players exercise and build up their skills while creating their imaginary spaces.
