Mojang, the small company that made Minecraft, turned 1 today. Notch and the whole team share an inspiring story of an indie game company starting small and making it big. Now they’re a phenomenon in the gaming community.
My favorite part of the game is how much it encourages creativity. Of all the games I’ve played, no other has allowed more customization. You build the world. You lay every brick of your house. You can build circuits and design booby traps. It really is a magical game, and has been so even before the latest addition of magical enchantments. I raise my cup of milk to you, Mojang.
And a few videos about Minecraft I really enjoyed:
