Ah, humility. Sometimes, it earns you the respect and admiration of your peers. Other times, it makes you more pleasant to be around. Other other times, it gets you free stuff. This, happily, is the latter situation. The humblest of all known indie bundles (we can’t account for space or other dimensions) has introduced a free Minecraft pass to its already formidable lineup. From now until August 14, you’ll have your own set of keys to Notch’s block-by-block opus. So then, you should toss a few coins in the bundle’s cap. After all, considering that it’s earned more than $500,000 already, it has to be doing something right.

Notch has confirmed that 4J Studios will be developing the 360 version of Minecraft that was announced during E3. The developer created XBLA versions of Banjo Kazooie and Perfect Dark, as well as the PS3 version of Oblivion. Notch said 4J “have a very good mentality, and obviously are very talented.” Well done, chaps. Minecraft 360, with Kinect support, launches later this year.

Notch has said that the Minecraft 1.7 update will include “adventures,” in an effort to “flesh out the game a bit, making it reward exploration and combat more.” In addition, “assuming we like them in play testing, pistons are coming in 1.7.” The game’s next update will also see the start of Minecraft mod support, but there’s no date on the release as yet. Thanks, RPS.

A future update will bring a “sky dimension” to Minecraft, joining Hell and, you know, the one you normally walk around in.

It’s hump day. Lucky you. Not much left of the week, or today for that matter, so, no need in trying to escape. Have some short stuff to close it out with instead.

Mojang has finally got around to putting a release date on Minecraft – so the team have a legitimate excuse to take time off and play Skyrim.

Minecraft creator Notch’s latest blog post has highlighted the contents of the next major update.
Promised “soon”, the update adds in the promised wolves, movable spawn points, a staistics tracking system, and achievements.
Mojang will then turn its attention to the neglected mod API, a feature much requested by the community as the game’s frequent updates currently break most mods.
Thanks, Big Download.

It comes as no surprise to anybody with an eye for delightful design and the ability to do basic maths, but indie sweetheart Minecraft has topped the one million milestone.
Congratulations, Notch! Well done, tasteful gamers everywhere! Hooray for independents and innovation! And other suitable exclamations!

Minecraft creator Notch and his team spend a lot of time tinkering with effects that never feel the light of day, but if you’d like to see the bug-ridden, wildly experimental, occasionally disastrously game-breaking results, you’ll soon be welcome to a daily install of the very lastest build.
