At MineCon in Las Vegas yesterday and today, Mojang has officially released Minecraft 1.0, signalling the end of the phenomenon’s alpha and beta testing phase. It’s been an interesting journey, and I’ve been playing the game since early summer 2010 – so it’s weird to see it hit final now. Game of the year? Well, no, that title obviously goes to Skyrim – but for a game like Minecraft to be even considered for such a title is amazing enough. Thanks, Notch and the rest of the Mojang team!
