The experience of Minecraft as a sandbox building experience is worth considering and raises questions about what motivates us to play.
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.

This podcast is also available via iTunes.
