Daniel Kaplan's Blog

 

Hello :)

I work at Mojang, the creator of Minecraft, as a biz/project manager of some sort. Titles here are not so important so that is why it is diffuse. I do all kind of different things but the majority of my time goes to managing Minecraft on consoles and mobile and also some  external dev relationship things.

I will write blog posts here every now and then about things that I hope you will enjoy too. Mostly my thoughts about design in games and gadgets :)

You can read a longer "about me" here.

I have never understood, actually why games have ads for other 's games. Sure, they can get a kickback by installing someone else 's game but why not try to make your own game monetize better Wouldn 't that give the developer much more money then sending the player off ...
