The wizard of Minecraft, the top ‘Notch’ in the gaming industry and Sweden’s’ highest tax payer is here to stay. Introducing, Markus Alexej Notch, the personality every gamer aspires to be. Markus alias Notch was just another nerd behind the computer at ‘Kings’ gaming company. Back in early 2000’s, popped a water-cooler discussion with Jakob Porser about developing a sandbox first person video game. A virtual world that helps you build your mansion and sadistically break others to earn points.
There is even a Southpark episode on how adults find Minecraft a thought-less initiative and yet kids are addicted to it. But this initiative was raised on strong grounds of concrete planning by Notch and Jakob. They not only sustained this conversation through job switches but also till their companionship grew into an everlasting bond of friendship. This led to the rise of Mojang, the organization under the banner of Notch, to have developed Minecraft.
