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.
