The currently popular indie game Minecraft may soon change a littles as its creator is apparently thinking of adding achievements, the title has been very popular on platforms that are able to play the java applet and has already sold more than 1.4 million copies.
An interview with the creator, Markus Persson, has revealed that in his opinion, achievements would be good for the game and for the gamer. His own words were: “Yeah, I like achievements. I know a lot of people don’t, but I like them.” He wants to introduce achievements that will give the gamers more incentive to explore and use all the in-game features.
During the Q&A he also went on to say “I’ve had the idea to make achievements kind of like the in-game questing. So you’d be able to see the first achievement in a tree of achievements, and you have to unlock the top ones first before you can unlock the ones further down.” and added “So the first one might be to chop down a tree, or kill a chicken, and then these branch into more things you can do. Hopefully it would encourage people to try new areas.”
The addition of achievements to the game would certainly give gamers more reason to stay on the game and more things to win, however we know that not everyone is a great fan of the achievement point scheme. Would you want Minecraft to receive unlockable achievements?
