For the last little while, I’ve been meaning to write something about Minecraft. About how the limitations breed creativity and how simple, approachable, and rock-solid systems (even though it is a rolling alpha) provide a supportive foundation for complex creation.

Hammertime? No! Pickaxe, yo! But Jacek Antonelli’s just said all of that, and probably better than I could have. Go and check that out and have a think about how simple, limited, comprehensible systems can support, foster and encourage complex systems and acts of creation, and all of the things that surround them.
