Minecraft Touch demoed on Windows 8

Minecraft’s creator Notch took a pretty strong stand against Minecraft on Windows 8, but a bit like Valve’s Steam it seems where there is a will there is a way.

At Minecon 2012 a version of Minecraft optimised for touch was shown off. The app still appears to be a Windows desktop app, but as long as Windows 8 users with x86 tablets will not need to pull up a mouse and keyboard it is still progress.

Hopefully the Minecraft team, who Notch no longer is directly in charge of, will see sense and finally release a Windows Store app rather that stick to a bizarre ideological stance, which did not stop them from releasing Minecraft for the iOS App store for example.
