Minecraft and Mojang are now officially resting in Microsoft's belly

It’s done. The i's have been dotted and the t's have been crossed, and Minecraft is now resting comfortably in the belly of Microsoft. Notch will never, ever run out of little hats. Xbox head honcho Phil Spencer confirmed the finalisation of the acquisition today on Twitter, welcoming Mojang to the Microsoft Studios family, which no doubt would look a lot like a scene from The Addams Family.

Update for Minecraft will let you control the fanciness of clouds

Update for Minecraft will let you control the fanciness of clouds

When you look up at the clouds, especially if you are a character in some romantic fiction, lying on the bonnet of a car, you might find that they look like celebrities or vegetables or maybe a foot. But have you ever looked up at the sky and thought, “Gosh, those are some fancy clouds"?

Maybe you hate fancy clouds, though. Perhaps you think they are putting on airs. If only there was a way to take them down a peg or two. You might not have such god-like control over the real world, but in Minecraft, you are not so shackled.

Minecraft 2 unlikely from Microsoft: "We need to meet the needs of the community"

Minecraft 2 unlikely from Microsoft: "We need to meet the needs of the community"

Our Tim’s letter to Microsoft about Minecraft was a hopeful but insistent plea: please don’t screw it up. Early signs are good: the company’s first act after the purchase of Mojang will be to consult the Minecraft community - and to shoo away any wrongheaded thoughts of a direct sequel.

“I don’t know if Minecraft 2, if that's the thing that makes the most sense," said Microsoft Studios boss Phil Spencer. “We need to meet the needs and the desires of the community before we get permission to go off and do something else."

Minecraft has now sold 17 million copies on PC

The newly Microsoft-owned Minecraft passed 17 million sales over the weekend, Mojang announced in characteristically casual fashion this morning.

“Not sure if this continues to be noteworthy," tweeted Minecraft Realms developer Marc Watson.

Of course, Minecraft sales are noteworthy as long as we can drudge up the figures of famous games it's outsold. Let's get to it.

Minecraft 1.8.1 will improve stability, make the ender dragon killable again

There’s a reason Mojang dubbed Minecraft 1.8 the Bountiful Update. It was the culmination of 10 months’ work, stuffed with exciting infrastructure rewrites and rabbits. But in the way of all updates, it’s yielded an equally exciting number of bugs and breakages.

Mojang have pushed out a pre-release version of 1.8.1, which they reckon will go a long way to solving stability issues and a whole host of other more colourful problems.

British Museum to be officially rebuilt in Minecraft

British Museum to be officially rebuilt in Minecraft

Museums may be stealth game bread and butter - I seem to remember Doing a Mission Impossible over a laser-guarded exhibit at some point during Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory - but they’re usually fictionalised. Perhaps that’s for the sake of level design, or so’s they don’t become thief training simulators. Either way, the officially-sanctioned British Museum in London in Minecraft will be the first of its kind. A blocky national institution built using its original blueprints.

The project is still in its “early planning" stage - and the museum are still recruiting members of the public for the big build. Will it ascend the angular podium of the best Minecraft projects ever?

Scrolls price drops to compete on tablets

Scrolls price drops to compete on tablets

Scrolls is getting dressed up ready for release on tablets. Mojang’s CCG’s been on PC for well over a year and, while not being quite as successful as the developers’ other game, it’s formed a devoted following amongst its players.

However, with an impending mobile release Mojang have had to face up to the fact that few tableters/tablists/tablerians are likely to spend $20 on a game.

To that end, Scrolls’ price is being dropped to just $5.

Topic of the Week: What are your fondest memories of Minecraft so far?

Topic of the Week: What are your fondest memories of Minecraft so far?

Now that Microsoft has purchased Mojang, who knows if the world(s) of Minecraft will ever be the same. Yesterday, I asked a tiny human what he thought of the acquisition. He shrugged and said “I dunno." Our children are now growing up in a world where they just don’t know things, and it’s all Microsoft’s fault. 

So let’s live in the past. Let’s remember the good times, our greatest moments in Minecraft. That’s our Topic of the Week: what are your best bits? Maybe it was something you built, or a giant project you undertook with an army of friends. Perhaps it was simply just a fun mining expedition. I don’t know - these are your memories.

Garry Newman on Mojang sale to Microsoft: "I'd have done the same thing"

Garry Newman on Mojang sale to Microsoft: "I'd have done the same thing"

The world watched as Microsoft bought Mojang for a country-floating $2.5 billion, and so did Garry ‘sMod’ Newman. But while the world at large mostly wailed and muttered dire warnings, the Rust mastermind decided that this is a deal in which “everyone wins".

“Long story short. I’d have done the same thing," he blogged. “The money is enough to very much take care of all the staff. The game is in relatively safe hands. Mojang’s legacy is as a huge success story instead of a one hit wonder.

“Can you seriously say you’d have done it differently?"

Microcraft: Microsoft might be trying to buy Mojang

Minecraft is a phenomenon. Your gran probably runs her own Minecraft server. It’s common knowledge that everyone who works at Mojang is actually made of gold - which means they can’t swim, but it’s a small price to pay. This means one thing: big companies want more than just a piece of it. Big companies like Microsoft.

The Wall Street Journal reports that Microsoft is in talks, serious talks, with Mojang over the acquisition of the Swedish company.

Mojang release 10 months' work in Minecraft 1.8: The Bountiful Update

What have you done in the last 300 days? Probably lots of different little things. The Minecraft dev team at Mojang have done one, big thing: put together the Bountiful Update.

Minecraft 1.8 was published to the Minecraft launcher today. It’s taken longer than any other update in the game’s history, and incorporates a full-scale rebuild of its infrastructure. That’s the equivalent of umpteen creative mode cathedrals.

Mojang postpone Minecon until 2015; still to take place in London

Mojang have announced that there won’t be a Minecon this year as previously planned, instead being moved to “spring" next year where it is still to take place in London. The exact reason for the postponement is unknown, but the Mojang blog post by COO Vu Bui seems to suggest it was a problem to do with the venue.

“We want to make sure we can follow through with the event and we never want people to start planning to attend something that might not happen."
