Notch isn't directly involved in Scrolls. His next project is yet to be unveiled.

Jeb knows what he's doing. Jeb is more skilled overall from what I've heard, he's the one that kept leaking Minecraft Beta 1.9 in Pre-Release form so he could get an idea what players thought without making it an official update. Jeb will probably take the game to newer heights, not to mention the new AI coder they just hired.. We should expect smarter enemies at some point.

Jeb is a pretty good guy, Minecraft's in very capable hands.

He had a good run, and for some reason, this seems really emotional.
The only real thing I want improved in Minecraft at the moment is the "Ending Credits", so I think Markus did a pretty swell job.

I used to be the lead programmer for Minecraft, but then I took an arrow in the knee.

He saw terraria 1.1.

Cant wait to see his new project though

I wonder if Notch regrets making Minecraft a 3D sandbox type game. I mean Terraria shows that the 2D sprite based set up allows the developers to add hundreds upon hundreds of things with ease. In Minecraft it all has to be created in 3D, textured in 3D and animated in 3D.. In the time it takes Mojang to make an Enchanting table Re-Logic could make a new biome, 3 sets of armor, 40 weapons and 6 new enemies.. Terraria is basic in design but is more feature filled as a result.
