The Video Game Awards - an annual award ceremony in which gamers vote on the best computer and video games of the year in numerous categories - recently saw Minecraft chosen as the winner for "Best Independent Game"! This is certainly exciting news for Mojang, adding another prestigious award to their ever-growing list of accolades.
Mojang continues to work hard on the popular sandbox title, even as they strive to complete Scrolls and Cobalt - could these titles be competitors for Minecraft at next year's VGA? We may soon find out!
But yes, VICTORY! :smile.gif:
Ah ha. Ah ha. Thats right. You've been owned.
Lets throw roses at Mojang!
I wont let that spoil my fun though.
Being independent has nothing to do with popularity, it has to do with the game studio. Mojang isn't a huge game studio, and Minecraft has been developed by a very small group of people. This is compared to, say, Skyrim, which has Bethesda behind it.
