I just thought I'd share as the kids would probably love it :)

Minecraft fans can now create their own version of the game and choose how it works, in a new release by Microsoft and Mojang.

Minecraft Hour of Code Designer, a free coding tutorial for students and teachers, lets users make their own world in the popular block-building title and program the rules.

“They can make chickens that drop gold, or zombies that run away instead of attacking,” the companies said, adding that players can also share their new world with friends.

The online-only program, which will be available in 50 languages, has been released to mark Hour of Code, a global initiative that aims to get more youngsters interested in technology and coding.

It is hoped that the Hour of Code Designer will prove as popular as last year’s Minecraft tutorial, which reached more than 30 million students across the world.

Designed for children aged six and over, this year’s game has been created in partnership with Code.org, a non-profit organisation that runs Hour of Code and is “dedicated to expanding participation in computer science and increasing participation by women and underrepresented students of colour”.
