This week saw little in the way of high-stakes action, mainly due to the holidays.  However, we still have some exciting updates on the various goings-on with Mojang, including an employee getting a prestigious award, updates on a few new-hires - at least one of which wants to revise the AI in Minecraft NPCs - and a quick look at the upcoming title by Notch, which was directly inspired by his recent Ludum Dare entry.  Give it a look!




Curse is hiring!  Do you want to join a dedicated team of people who love to play video games, and spend every working day immersed in them?  Check out our job openings, and see if you have what it takes to work for a great company in the gaming industry!

Why is the "official" news video from the MinecraftForums so bad in terms of audio quality? .-.

I dont see how they can improve AI much. It'd be neat to have better hostile AI, but I think the swamp lines, ocean floors, beaches, and overall terrain generation should be priority. I don't see as many petition threads about AI as I do terrain generation..

@SpetS15 Minecraft 2? It's an update game, therefore there will be updates.

@SpetS15 Nope...Minecraft with Crysis level graphics would be terrible. Good luck running it on those graphics if high end computers are struggling with 512x texture packs.

I hate how he says two thousand AND eleven.  I corrected him on his Youtube channel, and he gave me some nonsense about how he was from England, so grammar is apparently different there.  (It's not.)  He then blocked me from posting any comments.
