Trailer for Minecraft: The Story of Mojang

The Kickstarter-funded documentary about Minecraft and its creator, Markus "Notch" Persson, debuts on Saturday, December 22 on Xbox Live. Some time after that, the video will come out on DVD.

Some Minecraft players are upset that Xbox Gold subscribers are going get to see the crowdfunded documentary before folks who both donated money to the Kickstarter campaign and bought the game. Oh well, here's a 20-minute short documentary that everyone can watch now. [UPDATE: A spokesperson for the production company, 2 Player Productions, says: "The DVD and digital download version is coming out the 23rd, and Kickstarter backers are getting it before the Xbox screening."]

    Is that a real place at the end of the video? It’s beautiful, I’d love to see it.

  2. I pick up my son to ride home from school and his friends are lining him up to meet on our server in an hours time. Late at night (after homework) he is back in the game. I asked him where he is and he said “a hunger games server”. During the day yesterday I am working in the garage and two kids in the school behind our house are talking minecraft.

  3. Looks like a cool documentary – we can’t wait to check it out!

  4. Pretty sure it’s the giant’s causeway in Ireland.

    The person who says “OK I get it! I see why they are playing that game!”… That was me! I’m in the documentary (The guy who made the Enterprise D in Minecraft)
