Minecraft was designed; like most games, to be a fun and entertaining program for users of a certain age set. Minecraft was planned to be set for a younger age group before the initial developing even began. However, upon producing the amazing feature of Minecraft; Mojang realised that their product had a lot more potential than they had first assumed. Once Minecraft was developed and started to become more and more popular as the game extended its features; minecraft developers soon started to develop the game to not only be best suited around one particular age; but also a larger age group variety. Said age group variety, varied from 8 and above. However, in today’s tense; players usually range from around 11 years old, to even late 20’s. Even so, in saying this; the players of minecraft often easily became bored of the simplistic features of minecraft, even when the developers; Mojang, implemented new features contained within their common updates; they were easily thrown aside after a few repetitive uses from the player. This was one of the significant reasons in which mod developers started to rise out above the ordinary players/modders and start to develop and produce extraordinary mods in which simply work to improve gameplay and enhance each players entertainment level.
The Portal Mod for Minecraft 1.7.3, introduces the features from within another very different game into the game of Minecraft. When implementing these very unique and intelligent features; the mod developers make sure they do it in such a way that it still fits well with the original theme of minecraft, and also to not change too much of the initial games functions. The game of Portal itself was very amazing in a long list of ways. However, seeing as the game was based around a parkour/puzzle system, you as the player were restricted to what you could and could not do inside the game. However, when installing the Portal mod for Minecraft there is almost null restrictions.
