Finally it’s here. A Minecraft comic, everyone needs one of these, right? Most of my Minecraft hours happened what now seems ages ago. I was originally sold to it by Quintin Smith’s awesome write-up on Rock Paper Shotgun. I think around day three I loved mr. Smith too.
Occasionally I try to get back to it. The problem is, I’ve already built a thousand castles (more like cottages) and everything and anything I build seems to lack a function, a meaning. I just wish I had a reason to build the stuff. I really want to have an impact on the world on a scale grander than a pickaxe. There probably are some mods that add these things that I yearn for, like Industrialcraft. Speaking of mods, this high resolution texture pack is absolutely lovely if you enjoy a cartoonish look rather than a realistic one.
The event on the comic is a true story by the way. My first and last dog in Minecraft. I’m more of a cat lover.
