Notch is Just Done, Man. He's Done

MiddleEasy's Dave Walsh takes a look at Notch's decision to step away from the spotlight and to never build a big game again as simply a sad state of affairs for the gaming world, regardless of opinion on the 'big topics.' Maybe it's gone too far.

I don't blame him. I don't think he realizes that whatever Microsoft does to Mojang and MineCraft specifically, he is gonna get a ton of sh*t for. He doesn't want the attention, but he won't ever not get the attention.

It's absolutely hilarious that he didn't even finish making Minecraft, and he's just taken $2.5 billion and run without a single complete project to his name. I mean it's bad because gamers are so easily duped, but it's also hilarious because it shows just how stupid this entire industry is. He definitely did the smart thing, I'd take the money and run too.

People identified Notch as Mojang when he really was doing his own thing as Minecraft went full version. People assumed he was at the helm making big decisions when really he wasn't. He was a part of the company but he wasn't THE company.

You can tell he's a game developer at heart and isn't content with one game. He's made his money and wants to do what he enjoys doing.

2.5 billion. I'd sell minecraft for that too.

Didn't he co-found Mojang? If so I don't see him getting 2.5 billion, that would be shared. That aside you can bet on MS doing a cash/stock deal where stock is the majority of the deal. I look forward to when more details like this emerge.

i was playing minecraft as a kid many many years ago. the only difference was it was called legos back then and you really built something tangible.

SirDjss1373d ago

Correct, im with you on that

Still better to play minecraft, than all the kids playing GTA5.
