Documentary about Minecraft and it’s creator Notch and his small company Mojang, in which we see the progress from the start to the end in Minecraft. 2player production doesn’t really get into the modding of the game and mods which kind of makes us sad since it’s a big part of the game. Even though some parts of the movie feature various texture packs but that’s not really what we are in to.
Notch is the star of the movie, and there is the co owner of the company, an former employee from King which is a company/ website which makes money on flash game, and guess what, Markus used to work for them. Movie is fantastic, its a movie made by a niche company about a niche or an indie company. The cool thing is they uploaded it to the The Pirate Bay and you can download it for free, but off course you can also pay for it for 8 dollars which we recommend since they worked it off so hard to make it.
While the movie doesnt provide anything about how to make it big step by step it still inspires you a lot and also focuses on how to stay close with yours while you are a big shot.
“Temporary fixes aren’t good enough – we need deep and meaningful reform to protect software development and keep it as free and democratic as possible,” are the words form the creator of Minecraft, and indie developer which probably doesn’t like the whole idea of patents in software, cause would we be playing this game on our PC’s if he didn’t have acces to certain programs to create. Would we have TFC mod manager, or MCMODDR, whatever you want to call it, if everything is protected under law and patterned.
Some call him God, Markus Notch
$250 thousand dollars isn’t little money we are speaking him, we can see his own game serves him well, as he sold over 8 million games since it’s alpha release. And the number is growing, this game isn’t anything like call of duty or not even a mmorpg, cause mmorpg ends, this one we don’t see and ending that’s for sure. Support from the Mojang company will never stop we hope, since we all love so damn much the world of blocks for us to build and sometimes destroy. We just hope some errors or disable of entering the game on certain configurations won’t stop us, the most popular java errors.
4J Studios doesn’t stop working on Xbox 360 version, the console version of this indie block making gaming is getting more and more close to PC one, or Mac, what ever you prefer. The star of this update, not update for TFC mod manager but Minecraft game is the Ender Dragon, which means you will kind of be able to finish the game, in game now. But that’s not the only thing that is new to this update 7, on PC called 1.01 as we may thought.
Animal breeding, potion brewing, experience points and enchantments and many other things is now something you will be able to experience on your console at home on your comfy couch. There is a catch, The end will be there only when Update 8 comes, but the dragon will be here we hope.
What about experience ? Yes! It is here, you will have your levels just like in any other game don’t worry, it won’t affect your gameplay much but it will sure be a cool addition to it.
Getting into #1 spot for downloaded game on XBLA has it’s pros and cons, something that developers should totally do is make more updates, cause there are still some stuff that are missing in the game, and features people are craving for since original release date, not of whole game, but the alpha version, on PC and MAC.
With Mod Loader for Minecraft being downloaded from our website, we guess people are still playing and buying Minecraft for a long time for sure. What can we do as customers is probably not much, but the support for the original game is not gonna miss from us, since we all bought it and do downloading everything new that comes from the game makers, not only Notch but the other teams to.
Building all kinds of things with block is still addictive, on various server, so on multiplayer and singleplayer, playing alone is fun too.
