I have nothing but positive things to say about this game. Except for the negative things.

I haven't done a proper review, and might bother some time later.

Minecraft - SmallLogo.altform-lightunplated_targetsize-256

A procedurally generated survival game with shitty graphics, which became popular because it was first-to-market and took advantage of nostalgia.

Unfortunately, Minecraft was never completed and the author fucked off with the money to make another game. Even with extraordinary success, the author didn't make good on promises and the game was never finished. (It would later be "finished" by having a recipe book concept and an "end"; neither of which are any good.)

I loved this game, and even bought it twice to support the developer, but because it was Java it would bring a computer to its knees. Being sold out to Microsoft (for their upcoming virtual reality stuff I'd bet) was bafflingly insulting.

I would try it again years later, and it hasn't had basic improvements.

A utility (primarily) for those with multiple monitors.

I got it to stretch my bottom bar across into the other screen, and it also has a feature to fix alt-tab so it only shows/includes the current desktop. Also of interest is putting a proper screensaver on alternate monitors.

It has a huge array of features. Of note is a configuration backup/restore feature, so I don't have to make any notes on it.

I'm using the for-pay standard version, and can't review the without-cost version. So while I can say I highly recommend this, I don't think it's really valuable to recommend something with a price tag.
