Friends bugging you to try Minecraft? Just got it and have no idea what to do? Here, watch this.
So that's getting your act together during your first day in Minecraft. For your first night? Keep that door closed, and whatever you do, keep away from it until the sun comes up...
If you're unable to access a help screen to find out what the controls are for the actions in the video above, you access the crafting/inventory screen by pressing "I", you hold down the left button to chop/dig/attack, and you click the right button when holding a block/material to place it. Simple!
And yes, the door is the wrong way around. It's hard trying to play and narrate at the same time! Those curious about the game can get hold of it at Minecraft's site.
