As if the offices at Mojang studios couldn’t get any blockier, the team has decided to hire independent Cube World developer, Wollay.
In response to questions related to his recent hiring, Notch took to twitter, jokingly stating: “Our current plan is to plug his brain directly to a keyboard and sell whatever comes out.”
He also assured observers that while Wollay himself will be working for Mojang, his game Cube World will continue and remain independently developed.
Based on Wollay’s successful implementation of RPG elements and quest lines within Cube World, it should be interesting to see how his addition to the Mojang team could affect continuing development of Minecraft.
I continue to hope for the features promised in the original 1.8 Adventure Update, so maybe this is the signal.
