Minecraft is a world famous sandbox building/survival themed voxel game that allows the player to explore, interact with, and modify a dynamically-generated map. The environment features plants, mobs and items. Players can mine for ore, fight hostile mobs and craft blocks and tools by gathering various resources found within the game. The game's open-ended model allows players to create structures, creations and artwork on various multiplayer servers or their own single player maps. Other features include redstone circuits for logic computations and remote actions, breeding and raising animals, minecarts and tracks, and a mysterious underworld called the Nether.

The creative and building aspects of Minecraft allow players to build constructions out of textured cubes in a 3D procedurally generated world. Other activities in the game include exploration, gathering resources, crafting, and combat. Gameplay in its commercial release has two principal modes: survival, which requires players to acquire resources and maintain their health and hunger; and creative, where players have an unlimited supply of resources, the ability to fly, and no health or hunger. A third gameplay mode named hardcore is the same as survival, differing only in difficulty; it is set to the most difficult setting and respawning is disabled, forcing players to delete their worlds upon death.
