This book contains the collective knowledge of the Survivors - an underground group of Minecraft experts who've been around since the early days of Alpha. Written by the Chief - the leader of the group - it contains their most cunning plans and their most ingenious inventions. On the home front, you'll learn what kind of base best suits your needs, what to stock in your arsenal and how to protect your base with imaginitive defensive features. Out in the field you'll learn how to stalk your enemies, how to master the art of practical munitions and how to crush any opponent in hand-to-hand combat. The Chief also shares little-known tips for how to thrive in the Nether and End, and, once you're really confident, how to attempt a speed run to the End dimension. This is the definitive guide to survival in Minecraft from the experts who've lived to tell the tale. Study it carefully and you might just manage to stay alive as long as they have.
Mojang is the Swedish video game developer that introduced the world to Minecraft, the gaming sensation built upon blocks. Markus 'Notch' Persson founded the company so that he could give up his day job and go into full-time Creative Mode with his best friend Carl Manneh. The alpha version of Minecraft was launched in 2009, and the official game went on sale in 2011. Since then 70 million copies have been sold. It is now the third best-selling video game of all time. Mojang HQ has also developed Scrolls, Cobalt, and Crown and Council. Mojang was bought by Microsoft in 2014, but remains the hub of the Minecraft empire.
