The creator of "Minecraft" is Markus Alexej (Notch) Persson. Markus Persson was born in the 1st of June, 1979. He is a Swedish programmer and designer. He is the owner of "Mojang", the video game company which now, 2012 has three games, "Cobalt", "Minecraft" and "Scrolls". He used to work for "Jalbum" as a programmer. Back before Markus was well-known, he used to dream of making a lot of games. Games where you can do anything, everything you see is for a reason. No fake doors that lead anywhere, no trees you can't cut down, no fake stories told to the player to make the player more excited. Instead, the player would make their own story and will interact with their own world, decide what they want to do.
