Minecraft is made of Java....
Well, still, where do I begin?
If you want to make something like Minecraft... Then Java.
You won't find any game tutorials on here, because this website focuses on web development, hence HTML/CSS, JS, PHP etc.
I suggest doing a few Google searches.
If you decide to get it make sure to register as student / learning. It also supports C++ if you ever decide to try it out
Hope this helps
