Minecraft is a game about breaking and placing blocks. At first, people built structures to protect against nocturnal monsters, but as the game grew players worked together to create wonderful, imaginative things. It can also be about adventuring with friends or watching the sun rise over a blocky ocean. Minecraft 1.8 is the first non-development release in the Bountiful Update. It added and changed many aspects of Minecraft which made it easier for map makers to create adventure maps, and added many blocks and mobs for survival play.
