  • A small company that made one of the most (if not the most) successful games ever created, Minecraft, a fun game of survival sandbox. They also made some other interesting games such as cobalt. Markus Persson (aka Notch) is the owner of the company, and treats its employees well. Their games are worth trying, especially Minecraft. I’m sure many independent players will love Minecraft and Markus’ other projects.
  • the manufacturer’s site games – Minecraft makes a non-linear gameplay.
  • The official site of game developers Mojang. They are the creators of Minecraft, but also made some other games like Scrolls.Anyone you think that all games are just for kids are out touch and clearly do not understand the industry.
  • ;Mojang is a great company and I have not had any problems buying products from them. Its business model, from now, seems to be completely fair.
