Haven’t heard of Minecraft? Frankly, we’re impressed. The game’s rise from indie darling developed by a single man — “Notch” — to multi-billion dollar powerhouse has been meteoric, and highly publicized. Not only did it pioneer a movement in the game industry toward releasing early, unfinished games, but Minecraft became a massive mainstream hit. The game’s iconic “Creeper” character is a staple among both gaming’s hardcore and casual mobile gamers.
