I can count on one hand how many video games over the years have had a deep and emotional impact on my life, and Minecraft is definitely at the top of the pack. I started playing during the Beta testing stage, and have been a loyal member of the community ever since. 2 Player Productions first caught my eye when they created a twenty-minute sample of the Minecraft documentary, looking for Kickstarter support to finish the rest of the movie. Released on Christmas 2012, it’s clear that they did not disappoint. 2PP takes us through the complete whirlwind journey from Mojang’s rise from internet whispers to global phenomenon. The sheer magnitude of the Minecraft community since its earliest days is captured in all of its staggering glory in this film, and no one seems more surprised than Markus “Notch” Persson, the creator of the game and founder of Mojang AB. Minecraft: The Story of Mojang is a beautiful, poignant, and very human tribute to an unprecedented success story in the new internet culture.
