update 1.8 is finally here and with comes some of the biggest changes to the game yet. The latest update, which is now available to those who own the game, is known as the Adventure Update. Now, the game has grown to more than just collecting and building and now features adventure quests, NPC’s, and abandoned ruins and structures to explore and investigate.
It amazes me just how much this game has evolved since its inception, and it is still (officially) in beta form. One would imagine that Notch and company are planning something HUGE for the official release in November.
