I met Notch at the local game store

The man standing in the middle in the image above is none other than Markus “Notch” Persson, creator of Minecraft. As a lucky coincidence, I happened to bump into him today at Skuggspel, the local game store, when trying to replace a christmas present that was never delivered. He was kind enough to take a picture with me (left) and Wanted, a friend of mine who runs the store (right).

I find Markus’ story very inspiring, starting a project to explore a game idea is fun and easy, but seeing it through to the end is a skill that is hard to come by. I wish him the best of luck with his future endeavors and a happy holiday.
