Goodbye Real Life: Minecraft Heading to iOS, Android Devices

PC gamers’ favorite indie behomoth, Minecraft, is just about to make the full transition into becoming your full, only life, as Gamasutra reports that it’s currently being ported to iOS and Android devices for release later this year. Not much is known about the portable versions yet, except that it won’t receive the same updates as the PC version, only those that “make sense” on a touch-screen interface.

I’ll admit, I’ve fallen out of the Minecraft craze a bit, but it’s one of those games where when you pick it back up again, there’s always another overambitious task you want to accomplish that’ll own your soul for a couple weeks. Having it on my smartphone will make it harder for me to pull away from the madness.

I’m very afraid.
