Default Interview with the author of the Minecraft End text

Julian Gough wrote the text you see once you "finish" Minecraft. In this interview, he explains how he ended up taking on that role and what he aimed to achieve with it.

interesting read - I'm still not a fan, but interesting to know how the idea originated...

And is it just me or does Tom the interviewer like the sound of his own voice?

It may sound strange, but in some ways your ending to Minecraft reminded me of the film Inception. I thought Inception was crap in a lot of ways; but what I felt it captured very well was the experience of “coming up” after entering the other world of a game, in this image of someone falling in slow motion as music grows louder around them.
During the end of Minecraft, you’re forced to sit there for nine or ten minutes watching a very slowly scrolling screen full of text, and nothing else. It’s a bit like the slow-motion fall in Inception – or like a hypnotist counting gradually down from ten to one.
