Minecraft FigureIn Minecraft, your level of play depends on your level of thinking. You can build entire cities and create another life, a virtual world of imagination and creativeness.

The original creator of Minecraft is a man called Markus “Notch” Persson of Sweden. His interest in game development started young and at the age of 8 he made his own text game. During his adult life, his profession was working as a developer for a company and later left his job to work on Minecraft full-time.

Markus eventually passed the leading role to Jens Bergensten, and Microsoft bought Mojang, Markus’s company that owned Minecraft.

This game is the experience of an alternate universe, which is why it has attracted millions of people worldwide and the reason its creator grossed over $101 million dollars in the year 2012 alone!
