Word Up hosts Swedish journalists Daniel Goldberg and Linus Larsson to talk about their experiences with gaming icon “Notch” and the state of the gaming industry in Sweden. For kids, teens, adults, and anyone with a love for Minecraft and indie gaming!
Minecraft is played by more than 30 million people of all ages around the world and revolutionized the indie gaming industry. The Swedish creator of this cultural phenomenon, known as “Notch,” has become an icon and a multi-millionaire in a few short years. Kids and adults have embraced the game for its simple, unique design and its endless possibilities for creative innovation.
Minecraft: The Unlikely Tale of Markus “Notch” Persson and the Game that Changed Everything (November 5, 2013), is based on Linus Larsson and Daniel Goldberg’s exclusive interviews with Notch, his family and friends, and big players in the gaming community.

Minecraft: The Unlikely Tale of Markus “Notch” Persson and the Game that Changed Everything (November 5, 2013) is a Cinderella story for the Internet age. It is the story of unlikely success, fast money, and the power of digital technology to rattle an empire. It is about creation, exclusion, and that feeling of not fitting in. But above all it is the story of the fine line between seeming misfit and creative madman, and the birth of a tech visionary.
