Explore the indie phenom Minecraft in an upcoming documentary

Minecraft is cool, I guess. I’ve never been much for the whole ‘sandbox’ concept, shamefully enough. Color me uncreative.

I can’t knock Mojang’s hustle, though . This little indie game exploded almost as soon as it came onto the scene. And it has expanded well past just being a pixelated sensation enjoyed by well over 8 million players. We’ve got branded clothes, 8-bit item replicas, and hell, even a U.N. partnership. Notch really has a lot on his hands and now,fresh on the heels of Paris’ Minecon, he and his crew are prepping for another endeavor. 

This time? A documentary chronicling the rise of Minecraft and indie developer Mojang. 

As many projects do nowadays, Minecraft: The Story of Mojang got it’s start on Kickstarter. The doc, produced by 2 Player Productions, boasts $210,000 pledged. That’s $60,000 over their initial asking amount of $150,000. In it, we follow Minecraft creator Markus “Notch” Persson through the development and release of the game and examine the impact and success of his brainchild. 

Even though Minecraft isn’t really my thing, I’m definitely going to check this one out upon it’s December 7th release, because its meteoric rise is undeniable.
