Notch gives $3 million Mojang dividend to employees

If you're looking for an employee from Minecraft developer Mojang, you might want to look out your window, because they are currently over the moon. Mojang head Markus "Notch" Persson tweeted yesterday that he will distribute his 2011 Mojang dividends to his employees. The rub: said dividends totalled "about three million dollars" before tax. That is, to put it mildly, one hell of a bonus.

The story is too old to be commented.

Unlike......I didn't say anything:P.

Mojang has 25 employees, so 3M/25 = 120000$...That's one hell of a bonus!

They definately deserve it. Minecraft is f#cking brilliant.

they improved the game but they didn't create it. Notch made minecraft on his own before he had employees

Thanks, I know, but they are a team now, hence why I said "they".
