Notch is one of the most open developers on Twitter, and often quite emotional. He’s worth following on Twitter just to hear his opinions about gaming. Minecraft has allowed Notch to set up a growing game company, Mojang, which has three games in development: Minecraft, Cobalt and Scrolls.

Minecraft was first released on PC in 2009, and quickly became a phenomenon, and has been brought to Android, iOS and home consoles too.

That’s a tough thing to top, and it’s easy to understand how Notch might feel the pressure to do so.
