Notch Doesn’t Feel Mojang Deserves to Be Held Up Next to Valve
Edge reasoned that Mojang’s unprecedented success and integrity is what earns it the #2 spot:
“Without losing any of its renowned individuality, [Mojang] has grown to support releases of its hit on new platforms, and now holds conventions and publishes games, all while it continues to develop more of its own. It also holds the industry spellbound as its founder, Markus Persson, champions both player and developer rights.”
Via Twitter, Notch appreciated the honor, but doesn’t believe his studio deserves it just yet. He wrote:
“#2? Really? One released game and almost no proven track record. Great honor, of course, but no. ”
Notch went on to agree that Valve does deserve the #1 position.
Is Notch being too humble? Does Mojang deserve the #2 position?
