Minecraft developer says no to Windows 8

Posted on Thursday, September 27 2012 @ 22:01:23 CEST by


Markus "Notch" Persson, the developer of popular indie game Minecraft, announced that he hates Windows 8 and that he hopes users will avoid Microsoft's new operating system. Notch was approached by Microsoft to help certify Minecraft for Windows 8, but he refuses to help them.
"Got an email from microsoft, wanting to help 'certify' minecraft for win 8," Persson tweeted. "I told them to stop trying to ruin the pc as an open platform." He followed up saying he'd "rather have minecraft not run on win 8 at all than to play along," and hoping that it will keep some users from switching to Windows 8.

Persson's refusal to help doesn't necessarily mean Minecraft will be unavailable on Windows 8 machines, mind you. It could run just fine, but it will do it without its creator's involvement.
Notch isn't the only game maker who dislikes Windows 8, Valve's Gabe Newell already labeled it as a catastrophe for PC gaming and id Software's John Carmack isn't enthusiastic either.
