If you include its alpha period, Minecraft turns 10 years old this year.
I know! For some that’s a long time; but for others, it feels like it’s always been there. For years the folks at Mojang have been slowly building on the original concept, boosted by C418’s beautiful score and the promise of limitless creation. After Microsoft took control of the property, Minecraft only expanded from there on new platforms, with cross-play uniting people all across the globe.
Now that everything is beyond stable, it finally feels like it’s the right time for a spinoff.
