The Word of Notch, the blog of Minecraft developer Markus Persson, has some reflections on his recent foray to Bellevue, WA to meet with Valve. While he speaks of how promising the visit was, he also explains his next move will be to start a proper studio and begin development on another game: "Or, rather, a close friend and I will be starting up a new company together. That company will continue to develop Minecraft. I will be the main developer, and I will keep working on it just as I have now, but there will be people supporting me, such as an artist, a web site developer and a business guy to help sort out all deals and make sure that things like the Creeper plushies actually happens [sic]. My friend (name withheld for a while for office political reasons) will lead development of a game idea he and I have talked about for a few years. It will be developed in parallel with Minecraft, and has a fairly different style both in visuals and gameplay. Everyone working at the company will be involved in both projects to some degree."
