is it just people get enjoyment from grinding away for hours building stuff or is there an actual point to it all?
There is a "survival" mode when you purchase the game, so you have to build shelter, weapons, tools, etc in order to survive. Monsters come out at night too.
You can also explore and find all kinds of really cool stuff. It's addictive for me.
The game is still under development too, so who knows what it will be like in a year or two.
