So, Minecraft is the hot new indie game around teh interwebs, and I got sucked into the craze. I spent much of last night hollowing out an entire mountain (and the area beneath it to well below sea level), and have many things I want to go do in this giant sandbox/lego-brick game. It also supports multiplayer, where multiple people can exist in the same sandbox world, doing their thing.

As such, I was wondering if any of you were into Minecraft (or wanted to be but didn’t want to be alone), and if we should have a shared multiplayer server to hang out on and build our castles in the sky. Anyone?

    I’ll volunteer to host the server if you want. I’ve got lots of spare cycles on the quad-CPU Sun E420R.

    And that sounds like fun.

      That would be cool. You are the professional server admin ’round these parts. If you haven’t seen, the server software for it’s on the download page, with some minor instructions. And they’ve got some community support at the Minecraft Forums.

      If/when you get it rolling, I will be on there so fast, building a giant beacon in the sky to let people know where I am.

    I’ve yet to play it, though I may give it a shot to see what all the hoopla is about.

      Well they’ve got Minecraft Classic playable for free. It doesn’t include the most fun stuff…it mostly just lets you rearrange the landscape infinitely. *shrug* Otherwise, it’s like $12-15, depending on daily conversion from Euros.
