About this Event If you make a game about something that matters, your “players” will want to participate in that larger discussion. If you genuinely make that participation meaningful in the game, it can also be meaningful in real life. – Ken Eklund In the decade since Minecraft was first introduced to the world, it has sold 176 million copies across 21 platforms.
