How long does it take before

How long does it take before it gets dark and things start happening? I haven't seen any skeletons or anything like that.

Though I find it highly unlikely he's reaching that figure, if he is, then more power to him, because he's now a multi-millionaire!

he had somebody Map his PAYPAL to a webpage, he had a couple days (after PENNY ARCADE made comics on the game) where he did roughly 1.4 million for the week.. but that quickly dropped down to about 1/3rd sales in about 3-4 days. he was at a high fo about 27,000 copies, but today it was just shy of 10,000 (day isnt over). But considering its a ALPHA game.. pretty sweet.

I'm still addicted.. Seen sombody did a 1 to 1 (mincraft sizes) version of the Enterprise.. its HUGE! (look it up on youtube) and somebody built a working 16 bit computer (yes there are switchs in the game) its also HUGE... like small city HUGE.. to have the time..

VALVE guys are so addicted they sent a team out to meet with him (for the heck of it) or so they say...

I believe with the Penny

I believe with the Penny Arcade comic the servers where crushed. hence nobody could login, so it was free for a Week? while he fixed his problems. But the free-ness is gone :( . If you enjoy creative games, ones that require you to create and build this game is for you. If Sim City (this one is far easier to play, but is very complex in differnt ways) style games are your cup of tea this game is for you.

I have recomended many games, but this may one of only a few I can say I doubt anybody (who likes to create) will not think this game is worth the $13 US he wants for it. Right now its Half Price and free updates for life. Check some of the you tube videos out, while I can honestly say watching this does it no justice, you can hear in the voices of some of the youtube people just how awsome it is. My roomate watched me play last night for first time and bought it (he got it at 7:00PM and was still playing when i went to work this moring at 7:00AM ( he skipped work)). I have showne the game to 3 people and all 3 bought it minutes after checking it out. This is one of those games you want everybody to know about as its so great.

I never tried it but it appears MINECRAFT Classic is still free? Just the ALPHA version you need to pay to play.

Hm. I tried to play it, but it keeps asking me to login, and it won't let me play in the browser either. I guess you must pay to play, even if you just want to try it out.

I've been playing this game

I've been playing this game extensively since I got it a week ago, the amount of stuff you can do in this game is almost breathtaking. The only thing thats limiting you is really only your imagination. Of course it's still an alpha and what we have in the version available now doesn't fully show what will be available once the game is actually released or enters 'beta' phase, since it's 'just' an alpha right now.
For instance the developer plans to add goblins who will build villages and fight you, dungeon fortresses above and below ground which will be as everything else in the game randomly generated.
Minecraft shows, like Dwarf Fortress, that theres still innovation in pc gaming, though you have to go to indie developers to find it.
I use this texture pack when I play Minecraft http://minecraftforum.net/viewtopic.php?f=25&t=31331 as it improves upon the original visual style without straying too much from it.
Oh and hello, I'm new here :)

I've been hearing a lot about

I've been hearing a lot about this game of late, including from Penny Arcade. It's definitely on my future list of games to try out, including Dwarf Fortress.
