After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...

Cliffy B: "Notch Is The Games Industry’s Justin Bieber"

Posted on Friday, March 9 @ 20:37:18 PST by Sebastian_Moss

With the huge success of Minecraft in only a few short years, Epic Games' Cliff Bleszinski has compared indie icon Markus 'Notch' Persson to teenage pop star Justin Bieber.

Cliffy B said to Develop:

Notch is the games industry's Justin Bieber right now.

He quickly added that he didn't mean it in a negative way:

Let me walk you through this. Justin Bieber has exploded, and Justin Bieber, as much as many want to hate him, is a very talented guy.

If you did a Venn diagram of Minecraft fans and Bieber fans, I've no idea what that would look like, but each one via the internet has been born into a seemingly over night success, even though it likely took a huge effort over a very long time.

Bleszinski continued, explaining that Notch has the celebrity image and success that usually only AAA developers from large studios can hope to attain.

Being like that can help put you in the spotlight. Notch and Minecraft deserve every success they have.
