(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – Since October, Johan Bernhardsson, game developer for Mojang who is currently working on Minecraft Pocket Edition, has been giving fans a little look into what can be expected from the game.
He confirmed that 0.8 will feature minecarts, redstone, carpets, walls, and a variety of food such as carrots, potatoes, beetroot, and pumpkins.
Additionally, Bernhardsson gave fans hope that the game would be released in November by tweeting, “0.8.0 is not yet done. Hopefully out by the end of November.”
Clearly that wasn’t the case, but if there was hope of the game being finished by November, then maybe it was just a little delay and will be released by the end of December, just in time for Christmas.
