More on Minecraft's Adventure Update

The Word of Notch has a "trickle" of information about the eventual version 1.8 "Adventure Update" for Minecraft, the sandbox adventure game:

The update is pretty big, and will change a lot of how Minecraft is played, focusing on making exploration and combat much more rewarding, and bringing in a bigger sense of adventure to the game.

Already implemented are new complex terrain features, at least one new mob, some interesting new combat mechanics, a new lighting engine, and some experimental new gameplay ideas. To come is more interesting farming, bigger incentives to explore, and npc villages.

Honestly, if I was him, I probably would have sold the game out to someone who would be interested in developing it, and retire. Maybe make another game if I wanted too, since I would have name recognization.
Me too. However I'd say that's what makes him a true developer. He isn't as interested in the money as he is continuing to work on his creation.

I've wondered this about Mark Zuckerberg, once when questioned about why not sell for the billions he has been offered he actually gave a pretty good answer. It was something along the lines of, "This is the best idea I am ever going to have in my life. I want to stick with it."

Personally the best idea I ever had was the idea I might have enough money that I wouldn't have to ever work again. Maybe that will actually happen someday...
 
Truth is brutal. Prepare for pain.
