The Top 16 Best Books About Minecraft

1 of 17

The highly popular and addictive game Minecraft is a sandbox indie game originally created by Swedish programmer Markus "Notch" Persson; later developed and published by Mojang. The game is available to play on Xbox 360, PS3, PC, mobile devices, and is coming soon to both Xbox One and PS4.

The creative and building aspects of Minecraft allow players to build constructions out of textured cubes in a 3D procedurally generated world. Other activities in the game include exploration, gathering resources, crafting, and combat. Battle against enemy creatures, collect eggs from chickens or ride a pig! There's so much to do. It's a game that's appealing to both kids and adults alike. Gameplay has four modes:

  • Survival Mode: requires players to acquire resources and maintain their health and hunger
  • Creative Mode: players have an unlimited supply of resources and experience, the ability to fly, and no health or hunger
  • Hardcore Mode: version of survival mode, differing only in difficulty; it is set to the most difficult setting and re spawning is disabled, forcing players to delete their worlds upon death
  • Spectator Mode: player doesn't collide with blocks, is able to view, but not interact with, almost everything. This game mode isn't available in released versions yet, only in snapshots.

Here you will find a list of all the best books on the market that I have found to be your best assets to assist you from crafting to design ideas, to tricks and seeds. Enjoy!

    Hey! Those are cool books. I also write Fan Fiction in this genre. Biome War Scrolls & The Spider Jockey Academy are great adventures! If you like a good adventure!

    Thanks for the time to write the article.

    I noticed the Steve Surname Adventures series isn't on your list - and they're the best story books based on Minecraft!

    There seem to be an awful lot of books by one publisher I hadn't heard of before.
