Minecraft will be a PlayStation 4 launch game

Before Minecraft, Notch made a crappy Sonic fan game photo
Before Minecraft, Notch made a crappy Sonic fan game
by Tony Ponce

A great way to waste time is to Google any odd topic that happens to pop into your head and play a game of link tag until you strike pay dirt. My latest excursion led me to Sonic Racer 4K, a Java-based Sonic fan game. But what really caught my attention was the name of the developer: Markus Persson.

You know, the Minecraft guy.

After a little more digging, I discovered an old resume that he still hosts on the Mojang page, even though it's no longer directly linked anywhere on the site. Turns out Notch was a frequent participant in the Java 4K Programming Contest, which tasks entrants to create a Java game with a total file size less than 4K bytes. Sonic Racer 4K was a 2005 submissions, but he also made other 4K fan games, including MEGA4KMAN and Left 4K Dead.

I don't know how much of this is common knowledge, but it's certainly a big surprise to me. I like learning about what folks did before they were famous. As for the games themselves, they are impressive considering the constraints, even if they are kind of poopy. Test them out yourselves!

First five minutes of Star Wars recreated in Minecraft

An ambitious fan of Minecraft and Star Wars has decided to mash together his two favorite things and recreate the first five minutes of the movie with blocks. He's hoping to recreate the entire film this way, but I'm guessing it will be awhile before he finishes it. Live long and prosper!

Real life Minecraft Diamond Sword slices and dices

Our favorite blacksmith is back! This time he's recreated the Minecraft's Diamond Sword on the latest episode of Man At Arms. Another cool creation, but I'd hate to actually have to wield this thing as the handle doesn't look comfortable at all.
