Posted on February 8, 2012, Ross Lincoln Jens Bergensten: “More Worldtypes Will Be Added” To Minecraft
Mojang’s Jens Bergensten (AKA Jeb), former back-end and now lead developer for Minecraft, has had a lot on his plate since taking that job off of Notch’s hands late last year. Since then, Minecraft has received some pretty big updates, like the addition of a new worldtype, Superflat. Superflat is a completely weird idea of course, and when we had the opportunity to interview Jens, we had to ask him about it.
Gamefront: About Superflat. It’s hilarious, and hilariously difficult, but why did you add it?
Jens: It was added mainly as an option for multiplayer servers running in creative mode. Some people are trying to challenge themselves and play it in hardcore, but that is not what I intended
GameFront: Is it intended as the first of many new worldtypes?
Jens: Yes, more world types will be added when I have time to work on them.
We’ll have much more when the full interview drops tomorrow. Stay tuned. And be sure to keep watching The Minecraft Show.
