minecraft — as played by a 4 year old

no comment

so i’ve been playing minecraft. a lot. and one day my 4 year old daughter asked if she could play that ‘block miney game.’

sure! why not?


Home Sweet Home

so we started a game up, and lo and behold! she had coal, and iron and tons of animals right away.

i was so jealous.

we worked well as a team, as mouselook + movement is a bit to manage for someone who’s only ever played kids flash games, but she would move, and i would control the mouse. it worked quite well.

there were lots of adventures! we found a treasure room, and she was a little scared to go back, but we managed to defeat the monsters! she was very excited to see the treasure.

anyhow, she learned quickly that night time was when you ran indoors and hid from the monsters. this made perfect sense to her. when she found out that light kept the monsters away well, here’s the interior of her house:

house interior


note also the garden in the bottom level of the interior. she *loved* moving the mushrooms and flowers around.

we also made a mine. and we put a sign outside:

no monstrs or anumls allowed

no monstrs or anumls allowed

sadly this was version 2, as a creeper appeared one day a blew the sign and part of the first mine up. *sigh* like the one creeper image says: “that’s a lovely EVERYTHING you have there…it’d be a shame if anything happened to it.”

she was unperturbed though! she very resolutely said we could make another sign, and put a door on the mine.

presumably to keep out the monsters and animals.
