Manifest Destiny

by Steve Napierski to Comics

I have never played Minecraft and God willing that trend will continue. Not because I don’t think I would have a fun experience, but quite the opposite. I’ve got a lot of webcomic peers and friends who have started playing the game and have also become hopelessly addicted to said said. People who by default do not have addictive personalities. I on the other hand do have an addictive personality and would rather not try tempting the fates. Still, the fact that Minecraft Classic is now FREE is rather tempting.

Jen Brazas, the creator of Mystic Revolution and today’s guest strip, apparently has. In fact, I know she has because in the email that accompanied this guest strip, she told me:

Minecraft comic. Because I was dumb and literally built my base on a creeper spawning ground, on top of the thickest collection of caves on my map -_-

See that’s something you just wouldn’t catch me doing. But then again, playing Minecraft itself is probably something you won’t catch me doing either.

Oh, not sure what’s going on with all the guest strips? Then read this news post.

    As a heads up, Minecraft has always had a free version. Always. It just got renamed recently thats all. =]

    Minecraft is as addictive as the very first pokemon games were 10 years ago.
    You can literally build anything that strikes your fancy.
    You just cannot say no to the minecraft!

    Y’know, I almost felt bad for the creepers. Then i recounted the time i forgot to put torches on the top of my house. i climbed up there one night, heard hissing, turned for half a second and there went a good chunk of the day’s work.

    minecraft is essentially nothing more then a virtual lego sandbox. Which is why it’s so addictive.
    Personally I found it quite boring. Then again I’m not a modern man-child, just a working stiff

    I AM an addictive personality and I got bored of Minecraft after a month. It’s not that great actually. I mean it’s a good game but I don’t see how anyone could become addicted to it.

    Quite possibly one of my all time favorite comics. And while minecraft is terribly addictive if you’re into sandbox games, if you’re not then you’ll be fine. I’d say give the free trial a whirl. Its not as addictive as the full version, but its still something to do.

    Minecraft Classic is just the old “creative” mode. You don’t kill stuff, you have infinite blocks, blocks break the instant you touch them and leave no resources behind. You just build stuff however you want, and it’s horridly boring.
