There is a multiplayer version you can play but I haven't tried it yet. The single player version does have human villiagers. I encountered them once but they were all killed over time and their houses, gardens, sheep fields just left there. A shame... they were right next to my spawn area so I need to find that again in hopes they've returned. It's rather detailed what they do. I was just reading that village children will play tag. Wonderful adventures that you make yourself.. it's not real structured, but very open ended for 1000s of miles of endless exploration. HERE ( http://www.minecraftwiki.net/wiki/Minecraft_Wiki ) is a website dedicated to all you can do in the game. Warning LOTS of spoilers. I made it back to my newer house after almost getting blown up. I brought one chicken (that almost got blown up as well, and I lost his 2 friends that were with us RIP) with me to match the other I had already and now I have all the chickens I want. Plus some jungle saplings (cocoa beans!!!) and a few other things. I remembered several things you can do in the game to keep from getting lost. I've probably had enough spoilers. Finding it hard to play anything other this.
