Mojang, our lovely game developer famous for their cult game (it gained that status since it released) just announced that it got bigger in numbers, and by that we mean 10 million download.
Not only that sounds good, but we need to take in consideration that the game is being sold on mobile devices at $6.99 price. This is pretty successful for a game like this, well it was ported just from PC not being specially made for touch like other games are. Pocket edition of Minecraft is being constantly updated and more and more it’s being matched with computer version, we don’t even know does some option miss from this version. Mods are obvious thing but that is custom made from people that don’t actually work at Mojang.
Not so late ago PC version hit 10 million downloads, but yes mobile is a bit more accessible but we don’t know anyone there without a computer also.
As we talked about this update before we are reminding you all gamers out there that still play (not like it’s not cool anymore, but it is) update 9 is coming to our platforms, depends which platform you are on. In the meanwhile you should check out this Dota 2 like Minecraft video we enjoyed and we just had to share it with you guys, just like we share our Mod Loader with you that is still up there for download.
Since now mobile is a big hit and a more and more game are transferring to these kind of devices, tablets and smartphone we wonder will Scrolls, the next Mojang game , come to iOS and Android or maybe even Windows Phone 8 which is something we shouldn’t ignore as Windows 8 too. With all those eights around us and Microsoft focusing on one big eco system we could probably see a new Xbox not with the name Xbox 720 but Xbox 8 which makes a lot more sense to press and players that love downloading games and programs.
Before we start about Minecraft going hard, and by that we mean you will be able to get a hard copy of your favorite PC/ console game we want you to see latest video which is pretty hyped on youtube and it shows off visualization of creating process of Minecraft.
Pretty cool huh ? Yea we think that too also it’s nice to see that Notch was able to let his baby being coded by someone else, wondering is the feeling similar when you let your MOD being downloaded in the public or even modified a bit more by someone you actually don’t know.
So when will you be able to buy a retail version of the game ? April 30 and it will be only for Xbox 360. What about the updates we keep you informed about a lot of the times ? Yes they will be there on the disc with the game and also the ninth update that is coming will also be there on your Xbox 360 console. We wonder why PC isn’t gonna get a retail version, but maybe that’s the best it was first digital why wouldn’t it stay like that.
Minecraft has been on Xbox for quite a while, but in this week we witnessed a pretty big number, it’s only been months since Minecraft came out on XBA download and it already has 3,6 million downloads. Remember, this is an indie game from and indie developer which makes it even bigger story than it already is. We could say Notch’s dream came true and from now on he is working on another game, called scrolls. We can already kind of see a new genre coming in video game industry, something like Crafting since there are so many games now out there which don’t copy Minecraft but kind of take is as an inspiration for their own games, like Terraria and Castle Crushers which we are looking forward to play in beta release.
After a one hour huge debut in XBLA and overall 7 million PC sales this is something to look up to and take as an example how to succes in gaming, not only video game industry but as a business man, like Notch who now leads Mojang team and soon we won’t be looking them as an indie developers that’s for sure. TFC mod manager, an app or a program depends about your taste of calling this kind of stuff is something we also look forward too, the more popular minecraft is more popular are all 3rd party apps for it.
From alpha to beta, from beta to full game which has sold more than 4 million copies sounds like an job good done by an indie developer you know as Notch. As you already maybe found out Notch is not the lead in Minecraft anymore since he has some new project, like the game Scrolls which sounds creative just like his game that made him so popular and rich (let’s not forget what paypal did to poor Notch for a month). So after so many copies being sold and updates being downloaded is the Scrolls really what’s next for Minecraft players or is our game gonna stay at the top of the gaming scene on PC and Macintosh.
Minecraft future lies in their hands
The developers behind current game and the upcoming one that we mentioned before for our games, The Scrolls is actually in the hands of this guys who do everything in a relaxed way without any problems or concerns from the forum lovers and fans which post daily many thing that they would like to see be a part of the game, or something like a mod on which we are getting around all the time.
What is left to us, not so less important players is pretty much everything as we are the one who decide what game to buy and review it by our user score as we want it. We look forward in seeing MOJANG doing new things which will keep us locked in to our computers all day.
Minecraft wasn’t so popular from the start, but when it came to that time Mod manager was an must have, using TFC Mod Manager for minecraft makes everything so easier with all the new drag and drop features. Not so long time ago it was renamed to MCMODDR along with some other changes like you wont need nothing other but an Browser and remember this is The java applet application so we recommend Opera or Chrome from personal experience. Some ides have been also tossed around like adding a Run Minecraft button or Undo button which could help in future. In this youtube video it is explained and linked to our site so youtube viewers can easily download TFC Mod manager from this site by click on the top of the site on the download link.
TFC Mod Manager interface
While the official website is not online because of the updating as we hope to at least version 1.7 or something like that, cause that would make deleting mods or deactivating it. His username on forums is TomFromCollege, we hope he isnt too busy with his college cause Minecraft fans are ready to do some modding for sure.
Mods with Minecraft on TFC Mod Manager
Making sure the Application works on 64-bit system using Windows its important that u update it to the end, im sure creator worked on that so much but its just a small bug, probably with Java’s Minecraft.
