Markus Persson, also known by Notch, created Minecraft in 2009. Minecraft was originally called Cave Game. This game was unique in that you can't just create structures but you have to also gather resources to build them. This was unusual as most games of the time required players to either gather resources and build, or build but not need to gather resources. Minecraft was also a survival-game. You must survive hostile mobs to explore the vast world. You can also use your resources for new materials that can be used to build structures, last longer, and create more materials.

Microsoft purchased Minecraft from Markus Person (aka Notch), for $2.5 billion in 2014. Many were outraged that Minecraft had been taken from Markus Person (aka Notch) for $2.5 billion.
