Quick Look?

#1 Posted by Jimi (1126 posts) -

I am loving the game and feel it needs more attention. They did a quicklook of VVVVVVV so why not this? 
 
Also dave must do it.

Would've been cool.

That would be absolutely awesome, a quicklook happened for Mount and Blade: Warband, and that game was arguably not as popular as minecraft is right now.  The problem is Dave, it would only happen if this game caught Daves attention as Mount and Blade did, and i don't know that minecraft is the type of game he would like.

Minecraft is still in the alpha development stage, so I think it's a bit early to say "such and such got a quick look, why not this?". 
 
It's playable at the moment, but it's still a pre-order. When the game is actually finished and released properly, maybe they'll do it then. 
 
I would be interested to see what they think though, I guess, it's a neat game.

Good Point, and it will be on Steam eventually in which case im sure Vinny will buy it during some obscure steam weekend sale.

Agreed; it's too early, unfortunately.  If all of the planned multiplayer features get implemented, Minecraft could be a great game for TNT too, though.

Once it hits beta stage then a QL would be more likely. QL'ing an alpha game is a really tough sell for the staff.
 
However a proper GB QL might be the deciding factor for me to go ahead and buy it. The only thing the free version has going for it is the anaglyph 3d mode.

I am sure Jeff commented on this - It hink it was a question asked during a live stream - anyway - he said that he had tried to buy it but they rejected his CC or something.

@MrKlorox: watch some videos on youtube. davidr64yt has a whole series of videos with commentary that log his play from the moment he started playing. probably more effective that a QL

" Honestly I think just watching a few lets plays of the game ( http://www.youtube.com/user/davidr64yt ) would be better than a quick look, don't think a quick look would do it justice. "
I don't know if I should thank you for getting me to buy this great game, or be mad at you for making me spend money, which I don't really have alot of right now...

A quick look would be awesome, and considering the stability of the alpha it should be considered by the staff.

Doubt it, it's too esoteric.

No, it needs to be the next endurance run

haha the game doesnt end, would the endurance run be the same?
#21 Posted by BraveToaster (12590 posts) -

I don't think they need to do a quicklook.

Yes! Lets make it happen.
#23 Posted by Rincewind (250 posts) -

I'd rather they wait until its the retail version purely because it only contains 5% of the total awesomeness potential that Notch has in store for it. (this friday we get flying things)

#24 Posted by NekuCTR (1663 posts) -

I wholeheartedly agree, Minecraft is awesome!

Too bad it would be like a five minute quicklook since there's nothing to do other than dig, build stuff and survive the night.

Yeah, it's a five-minute game for $10. What a ripoff.
