Who Created Minecraft?
"Sandbox" means a player can move freely around in the game.
"Indie" means the game was developed by a person or small group of people
Swedish programmer Markus "Notch" Persson in 2009 created the game mincraft.

How to Design?
Five primary goals through Java designing:
1. It should be "simple, object-oriented and familiar"
2. It should be "robust and secure"
3. It should be "architecture-neutral and portable"
4. It should execute with "high performance"
5. It should be "interpreted, threaded, and dynamic"
