Yet, we believe video games, especially ones like Minecraft, are an art form,” says Creative Director and co-Founder of Higround, Rustin Sotoodeh. “Minecraft's gameplay spawned a generation of creatives who, for the first time, were able to architect houses or design clothes at an early age. Our collaboration with Minecraft shows the world that side of games—the creative side.”
