With all the furor surrounding Minecraft in the indie game community, the Moving Pixels podcast crew couldn’t help but have a discussion of the game.
While a couple of us have only had a more limited experience with the browser version, nevertheless, this sandbox building experience is worth considering and raises questions about what motivates us to play.
This podcast is also available via iTunes.
