Minecraft creator Markus “Notch” Persson has released his Ludum Dare entry into the wild, and you can play it right now. Called Minicraft, the game lets players explore random environments, harvesting resources and crafting new structures, with an end goal of defeating the Air Wizard. Sounds familiar, of course, but the perspective isn’t. The game was created in 48 hours as part of a rapid game making challenge, with Notch live streaming his creative process to eager fans accompanied by a dubstep soundtrack.
