Notch steps down as Minecraft’s lead designer

Or as some of you terrible pun-lovers would prefer it, he stepped a notch down.

Markus “Notch” Persson, creator and lead developer behind Minecraft has announced that he will no longer be the lead developer behind his product of absolute mad ingenuity, Minecraft. The reins will instead be passed over to Jens Bergensten, who’s been working with Notch on the game for well over a year now.

Don’t worry folks, Notch will still be a developer on the game, but will be taking a sabbatical until he reveals his new secret project (which we suspect is a mind-control laser even more powerful than Minecraft).
