    Markus Persson, aka Notch, the man behind current cult darling Minecraft, has revealed that he's about to get a little more serious, setting up a studio and hiring some help to work on a new game.

    He's gone into business with a "close friend", and will be bringing on some more developers so the studio can work on both his current baby and a game that "will be developed in parallel with Minecraft, and has a fairly different style both in visuals and gameplay".

    This title is based on a "game idea he and I have talked about for a few years". So no, it's not Minecraft 2. Those worried about the fate of Minecraft, Persson says he will continue to work on the game "just as I have now". He'll just have some help, is all.[/p]Source

    The game will require Notch to complete re-write the code since it's made in Java.
    Not like it needs ports, it works on Windows, Mac and Linux. Console ports will be lame.

    A WOOT is in order! Hopefully we'll see this go in a good direction. I have began to go dull of the minimal resources and limited crafting.

    I swear, when I purchased Minecraft I played through that night for something like 15 Hrs straight. I don't know what about it, but its just so addicting.

    I agree Smores.
    The game was fully addictive once I first bought it, I've took a small break from it now though since when I play it, I just can't come up with enough good ideas or motivation to build.

    Though I've had a break from it before and it got as addictive when I first played it.
