As the hugely successful video game called Minecraft was initially released to the public, the development studio behind this title, Mojang, caught the public eye for the first time. As this title grew into what it has become today, Mojang has become a very well known studio throughout the entire video game industry. In respect to this, 2 Player Production started out last year on a mission to fund a film through Kickstarter that would become a documentary based on the creation of Minecraft and the uprising of Mojang.
Now, one year later, 2 Player Productions has finally finished this film, which is called Minecraft: The Story of Mojang. To build anticipation for the initial showing of Minecraft: The Story of Mojang, they have now released the official launch trailer for this movie.
Currently,this movie is scheduled to air on Xbox Live on Dec. 22.
This Saturday, December 22, XBOX Live be airing our documentary Minecraft: The Story of Mojang. The movie follows Minecraft creator Markus Persson after his rise to fame in 2011 and examines the ins and outs of building a video game company.
