Fury If I'm not mistaken, you may be talking about Infiminer and Dwarf Fortress, which are two games that HEAVILY inspired Minecraft. Notch definitely doesn't deny that he took ideas from both of these great games. That being said, he took elements from two amazing and underated games, and created something monumental.

I think minecraft busted infiniminer etc because of the art style and the way the game was being developed to be honest. Currently there are already clones with better graphics etc but why play them if you already have such an established game? It's one of those games where being the first to execute it just right means you take the crowd with you to be honest.

quote Abyss Raider
It was such an original and unheard of idea, I really don't see how it couldn't have been successful. Not every single game they release can be original, but I've got confidence they'll make some more really good ones.
Supposedly he took the idea from some other game actually. I remember reading about it when that whole dispute about FortressCraft leaching off of Minecraft came around.

I have to commend him for his honesty. Still, I think he's completely right in some sense or another. I remember playing the game pre-everything when survival was only mentioned. I totally forgot about it for a while and boom, it's everywhere.
