Mojang has a documentary, covering their first year as a company (from 2010), and the explosive growth of everyone's favorite sandbox game, and it's available right now!  Players who have Gold Accounts on XBox Live can see the movie straight away.  If you would prefer to get the movie outside of Xbox, 2 Player Productions is offering the documentary DRM-free; click here to get your copy right now!

Minecraft: The Story of Mojang is a feature-length documentary that follows the young company over the course of its first year as their profile expanded across the world stage, and into the homes of millions of gamers. Featuring insights from industry icons (Peter Molyneux, Tim Schafer), journalists (Geoff Keighley, Stephen Totilo), taste-makers (Gabe & Tycho of Penny Arcade), and players profoundly impacted by the game (Yogscast, The Shaft, Minecraft Teacher), the film serves as a time capsule for one of this generation's most unorthodox success stories.

Minecraft is the second feature from game culture archivists 2 Player Productions (Reformat the Planet, Penny Arcade: The Series - Season 1, Double Fine Adventure!). Funded through crowd-sourcing site Kickstarter.com, the production spanned nearly two years in locations across North America and Europe.

Congratulations to everyone at Mojang for making an incredible game, and being an inspiration for us all!  Be sure to check out this amazing film, and enjoy.

So happy this is finally out, I heard about it about a year ago and ever since I've been waiting for it. Notch is practically my role model as I'm also a programmer and love to develop games. I just look at his success and hope that someday I'll be at least marginally as successful as him!
All sorts of great youtube videos

if you are not interested in mineraft or documentaries, you could also not watching it. I mean, you seem to think documentaries don't worth anything, and unless you're a 10yo kid, that's a little bit childish.

I didn't say that documentaries aren't worth anything, just something about Mojang doesn't appeal to me so much that I won't to pay for it.

I was waiting for the movie to come out just sitting there for 5 minutes waiting for it to start. At First I only thought it was going to be like 10 15 minutes or so and then it became 1 hour and 44 minute movie.

If 2PP wanted the documentary to be on Youtube they would upload it to Youtube.

I have played Minecraft for a long time and watched lots of things about it. However there were parts in this documentary that even I had never seen or known.. Great job to the makers!

My boys and I love Minecraft, but paying to watch a documentary is just stupid. It would be much more advantageous to Mojang to offer this to some televised network and then free to all. For a company that has made the right moves on its limited capitalization of this very enjoyable product, now's not the time to get stupid greedy. This is my opinion, I do not fault anyone who is willing to pay for this. The documentary was most likely made without monetary compensation in mind, I just don't think it is worth it. It also lessens its worth by selling it in my eyes. Anyhoo I wish you all well and HAPPY HOLLIDAYS [img]http://static.minecraftforum.net//public/style_emoticons/default/smile.png[/img]
