Minecraft was initially known as the ‘Cave Game’ and its first version was created in only six days. Gradually due to the lack of caves in the game and thinking of the name as simple and easy, the name was changed to ‘Minecraft: Order Of The Stone’ and later to Minecraft.

Also, caves refer to Mining and Structuring. The other thought for changing this name was that he didn’t want to mystify people with another game ‘Caves of Qud’.The reason for changing the name to Minecraft was that it was more impressive and remarkable.

Due to this reason the game is still popular even after 10 years of its development. Generally, names hold great importance. Hence, Minecraft addresses a small to a large group audience.
