Game creation in seven minutes or less!

Seeing as how you’re reading this website at this specific time of day, I have to imagine you have — at one point or another — imagined what it’d be like to create a game from scratch; we’ve all been there. Markus Persson, the gentleman best known for Minecraft, can help with that.

You see, he created a game for the down-and-dirty design competition Ludum Dare 18 — and he streamed the entire creation process live. Genius! I was there for part of the “show,” so I feel okay in saying that this time-lapse video of the dev cycle is vastly more enjoyable to watch.

The finished game, Metagun, can be played here.
