800+ Days Of Minecraft In 8 Minutes

January 9, 2014 | By | Add a Comment

Here is a great (and beautiful) visualization of 826 days of Minecraft development, from the Alpha 1.2 release to release 1.5.  Put opn your favorite ambient electronic track, and watch it in full screen, in HD.

Each dot represents a unique file, and its colour represents a different file type. Links between files are folders. Whenever someone flies by and “zaps” a file, it means they did something with it in real life. You can see as people work on new features or bugs, as they’ll fly past certain files and zap them as they go.

This was made using a slightly customized version of Gource, available at https://code.google.com/p/gource/.
