The recent Game Developer's Conference (GDC Online) - hosted in Austin, TX - passed out awards to numerous games for outstanding achievements.  Only two games took home more than one award, and Minecraft was one of them!  Earning honors for Best Community Relations and Best Live Game, the indie-developed masterpiece definitely stood out among the game crowd!

The GDC Online awards focus primarily on Online titles; with recent contenders representing "a massive range of genres and studios", it's very exciting to see Minecraft continue to make a strong, lasting impression on the gaming industry.  With the launch of the game (as well as Minecon) near on the horizon, Mojang's masterpiece creation is set to hit the ground running, already having over 3.5 million copies purchased!

Additionally, Notch has recently commented on the recent changes to the sun and moon for the 1.9 PR4, and is now asking for your feedback!  Take this poll to weigh in your opinon:  do you want the sun and moon to be square or round?

:D Good for Minecraft!

Although, we all know MC wins, hands down. Everything.

Minecraft wins at everything, it is made of winning.
It's very possible I will never see this thread again, unless you quote me. If you need me to see something, quote me on it.

Awesome! Well deserved rewards and more recognition for Team Mojang! ヅ
Most texture packs give the user a round sun/moon anyways so why not just make it round? Square sun looks odd with the new lighting system anyhow. ヅ

I totally agree, leave it to texture packs make round suns if they want.  It's the whole point of minecraft.  Or you could put it in the options....

The poll should've been hosted on this site rather than one where anybody can impersonate Notch and fool the weak-minded.

Good job Mojang!

Also, I think the sun and moon should only be made round if it looks good. I've yet to see a texture pack with a nice looking circular sun and moon. Though, I trust Mojang to make it as awesome as ever.
