Amazing! Can't wait to have some time to watch this!
It's actually some really good source of info on notch and mojang. I actually know some not so successful game designers who bad mouth notch for no actual reason, making people dislike him without even knowing him or his company. Things like this help prevent this kind of situation. Thanks for sharing!

Very cool, wasn't sure if I'd sit at my computer and watch it all the way through but I did.

Some of it was interesting, but unfortunately as a documentary it was pretty poorly done. There was very little conflict or narrative thread tying the film together. A documentary is designed to tell a story about the subject, not just rain praise and exposition details. This watched like a lot of those "fan docs" where it's just a navel-gazing series of interviews about how amazing some game or tv show is supposed to be.
