Minecraft isn't a game that we instinctively call 'beautiful'. Sure it has a quirky charm, and a retro, 3D look that certainly suits the pixelart textures, but overall, Notch's game is more about function than form.

Check out the screens for more, or check out the video below - it's impressive stuff.
