Minecraft is a video game in which players create and break apart various kinds of blocks in 3D worlds. Players explore a blocky, procedurally-generated 3D world with virtually infinite terrain. They will play to discover and extract raw materials, craft tools and items, and build structures or natural elements such as mountains or lakes. Game modes include survival mode and creative modes. In survival mode players must acquire resources to build the world and maintain health, while in creative mode, players have unlimited resources. With Lost Tribe, players can modify the game to create new gameplay mechanics, items, and assets, all in a Jewish environment.

What people are saying…

Your Minecraft programs work! During a recent in person youth group event, here in Buffalo, two boys were chatting, who I knew had not known each other long. When asked, they told me that they had met through the Lost Tribe Minecraft program we ran last spring and had become close friends.”
