The Story of Notch

Notch was the single being in the bare world. He was always there, but dormant. But he was bored with the normal, round world, being confined to the thin crust of a molten sphere. He dreamed of a world made up of blocks, a world where the only limit was your imagination. Flat, forever expanding.

With a little bit of help, he created this world, and named his creation "Minecraft." He became a god-like being, known today simply as Notch.


Notch's "skin" is currently a Caucasian man with a black goatee, wearing a brown t-shirt, grey pants, and black boots. He sports a cape with the "Mojang" symbol. He is known to randomly visit some servers, and appear at large functions. If he is killed (which is not advised, as he will get you back somehow) he will drop an apple for you.
