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.
Minecraft has been around since 2009, and we’ve been here for almost a year. Reporting you about daily news that has something to do with our beloved TFC mod manager and the mods you like to download and use it, or if you like to call it Mod Loader.
But as time moves on, the creator Markus “Notch” Persson also moves on, after not being anymore a lead creator of Minecraft he went to the next project called 0x10C. He tolled the PC GAMER that we would like the finished product of the game to look like a classic sci-fi series, called Firefly. What’s so special about this game ? There are no mods, no TFC mod manager or any blocks to build in Minecraft. Well the game instead of traveling around the space and killing monsters is more focused on fixing the rare problems, but realistic ones. Instead of going on a day trip in this game, you set of a destination and some problems know to happen, and you are the on to fix it.
Windows 8 isn’t even out yet and there are already few unsatisfied developers like Gabe from Valve and Markus Notch from MOJANG team, which created our favorite game on all platforms, Windows and Mac OS, Minecraft.
Thing about Notch’s lines from the earlier week about Windows 8 is that he says it without any backup up his rage words we can cal it, as he said he would be more pleased if Minecraft didn’t run on Windows 8 at all than running poorly. Why did he say that and what motivated him ? Probably not Inventory editor or TFC mod manager, but an email from Microsoft who asked him to make it compatible for Windows eight (8). His response to the email was stop ruining PC as an open platform and by that he means the Metro version of it, which has only one kind of closed store in eyes of open developers.
After porting it to Xbox 360, Android and iOS i don’t see why would there be a problem porting it over to Windows 8 as something we players really need, cause we hate to see Minecraft not being able on everything and all the mods we want.
