Default Mojang is one year old!

While Toggers have been playing Mineraft for over one year [1], Mojang is celebrating its first birthday. Notch describes his original elevator pitch for Minecraft as being "Dwarf Fortress meets Rollercoaster Tycoon meets Dungeon Keeper". His crazy idea has undergone many changes but has become a world-wide hit. It recently registered 15 million users (though Notch claims only 25% actually bought the game). It gave him the funds to change Minecraft from a one-man program into a development supported by a team of many - the company called Mojang!

Happy birthday, us! : The Word of Notch


[1] Yeah, in all the turmoil about 1.8 and 1.9, we missed the anniversary of the creation of the Creative world on 22 September [2]
[2] But the Division has its own birthday on 9 November. See The upcoming birthday of the Division - 9 Nov
