I may not speak or read German, but if there’s one thing I’ve learned about them in the past decade is that they love games, and they are totally awesome.

Oneshots (AKA: the Notch timelapse love list)

Yes, when your internet name is Notch and you make a smash hit called Minecraft, your buzz follows you everywhere you go. Thanks! 😀

    haha weird that is my AVOIDAL timelapse on that last notch love list.. the blog. This timelapse thing just keeps spreading.. mind blowing really that it has never caught interest before at this level and now all the internets seem amazed that any programmer would screenshot their progress AND make a game in 48hrs. I guess we should have seen it coming. I know that my non-game / non-tech friends have always enjoyed watching the timelapses more than even playing the games as a way to try and understand the weird “magic” us game creators make.
