Markus "Notch" Persson may have passed the Minecraft torch, but the hit indie game is still being worked on almost entirely by one person: Jens "Jeb" Bergensten. Gamasutra caught up with him for an interview, posted today, that sheds some light on Minecraft's future, among other things.
Jeb said he knows he can't please every Minecraft fan himself, which is part of the reason he's going to work to make it easier for everyone to build and access user-generated mods.
"It kind of feels silly of me to sit and work three days to add a new animal to the game when there are like thousands of people who would like to spend three days to add an animal to the game," he said. "So, the good thing about mods is that then we can let people who really want to specialize on one part of the game, we can tell them, 'Here's a really great mod. Just install it. You'll have fun.'"
It's all tentative, but hopefully he follows through on that. The rest of the interview is an enlightening read—we think Minecraft's in good hands. Do you agree? What else would you like to see added to the game? Let us know in the comments or on Twitter.
