Notch shares insight into why he left Mojang, Minecraft, and more

Recently, Markus Persson (aka Notch) has been answering questions on his Ask.FM account. And as can be expected, there's a few questions he answered about Minecraft and Mojang as a whole. Here's the most interesting answers:

Q. Why did you remove roses when you were still in the minecraft community?
A. That wasn't me. I think the reason was the red color looked weird on some phones.

Q. Opinions on how minecraft is being run now?‎
A. No opinions.

Q. will there be a sequel to minecraft?‎
A. Ask Microsoft!

Q. Why did you choose too program minecraft on java, and not on a own engine?
A. Well, I did write my own engine, in Java.

Q. hey mark what do you think about the last update of minecraft‎
A. I haven't tried it.

Q. what do you think about minecraft now ?‎
A. I think it's a fun game, and I'm very proud and grateful of how far it got.

Q. Why can't i ask you about minecraft?‎
A. Minecraft kind of consumed me for quite a long time, and it's made a bigger impact on my life than anything else ever has or will, and it's nice to get a break from it.

Q. what was your motive to sell minecraft to Microsoft?
A. I was unhappy with my situation, I was frustrated with the pressure, and 2.5 billion other reasons.

Q. Do you sometimes regret that you sold Minecraft and you have left Mojang?‎
A. Not yet. I expect I will at some point in the future, but so far it's been the best decision of my life.

He also answered some questions about gaming and other related things on his Ask.FM profile in the source link below.

I know it was the best for him to leave Monjang but I'm worried about Microsoft...

I guess so, they could charge you extra for upgrades and the actual game in the future, and they ruined a few other games

I like to think that even Microsoft isn't so dumb to screw up something with such an enormous community.

Thats true they could. But mojang could have done the same thing. I dont think MicroSoft wants a few million angry Hunger Gamers on there hands! ;)
