Have you ever wanted to ask Minecraft creator Markus “Notch” Persson a question? Well, you could get a chance on Tusday, July 31.
Tune into Reddit, as Notch takes part in an AMA (Ask Me Anything) session at 2PM Sweden time. (Reddit suggests you use WolframAlpha to convert that to your local time if you’re not entirely certain how that translates.)
This is pretty much a must-attend event for anyone who loves Minecraft, though Redditors are being encouraged to not use this as an opportunity to beg the man to put their ideas into the game. He’s a busy man, and there are forums for that, people! Also, Notch is taking a more hands-off approach with Minecraft these days, so he’s probably not the best person to bug with your ideas right now.
Redditors are also asked to not complain about people using this as an opportunity to promote their favorite charities. Apparently that’s something that’s expected to happen here, and it’s always good when well-meaning charities get a little exposure.
Several of Mojang’s employees have done Reddit AMAs in the past, including Daniel Kaplan and Jens Bergensten. Also, Notch had participated in another one a while back, and Lydia Winters (AKA The Minecraft Chick) is apparently expected to take part in one at some point in the future.
Needless to say, getting to see what one of gaming’s most controversial indie developers has to say on a variety of topics will be quite interesting. Don’t miss out!
