Making a demo for a game is tedious work and takes a long time to complete adding nothing to the game as it is now. That's one of the reasons big development companies are contemplating stopping making demos for their games aswell.

I hope Notch will restrain himself from making a demo for the survival, at least untill the game is finished.

^^^

which is just a shadow of what awaits in alpha.
And like the baseless fabric of this vision, the cloud-capped towers, the gorgeous palaces, the solemn temples, the giant Screen itself, all of which we inherit shall dissolve. And, like an insubstantial pageant faded, leave not a byte behind.

Minecraft is actually extremely cheap. try 40-50 euros for any of the major games. If you cant spend 9 on this, then you shouldn't even be looking for a game to buy.

To be honest, minecraft is both an alpha version and not a major game. Theres not much point in comparing it with complete AAA millions dollars games.

However, tough im quite broke, I spent the money on it and can say it was *well* worth it considering the time I spent on it. Another good reason to buy it now is that the price will raise when its completed (and you can play the full game if you buy it now).

My point is, that it ISNT a major game, and so it is extremely cheap compared to the major games.

The OP must be a kid.

I really can't see an adult who owns a computer with an Internet connection thinking too much about 9 or 10 Euros, when compared to the cost of most things these days.
Only a kid could mistakenly think that's a lot of money.

(That and the formatting of the sentences. :P )

Yeah, but it does not make me want to click it. Also, adding "Krush." when typing normally is a bit stupid. Add it in your sig? Its what it is for.

Or someone who is unemployed. When you don't have a constant stream of money to spend on Luxuries you count every penny. Given what you have said, id assume your not an Adult or you have had a Silver Spoon all your life. There are more expenses per week than the cost of Minecraft, should people feed there kids or buy Minecraft... hard choice.

Yes the Kids loose in the End.

I do have a question that somebody triggered in this thread that I seem to remember reading something about before I purchased minecraft but not sure exactly it's entirety...

When buying the game now, what does that include in the future?

I assume it includes updates until the game is in final gold release, is this correct?  Or does it actually go beyond that, into any sort of further updates to the game?  Maybe like until the 2nd version or something like that?

Thanks,

You need to visit more forums to see that it's quite normal.

Watch LP's.

Read reviews.

Look at pics.

If all of that doesn't convince you this game is awesome, maybe it just isn't for you.

http://www.minecraft...prepurchase.jsp says this, at least:

Quote

Here's what you get:

    * You never have to pay again!
      You get all future versions of the game, including all expansions and addons.
    * You help fund the development of Minecraft
    * Custom skins in multiplayer
    * Once you've bought the game, it's yours. No DRM.
    * Survival mode!
