Watch Minecraft Dev Make An Entire Game In 48 Hours

Markus Persson is an indie game developer. He's currently making Minecraft, but you may also know him from games such as Left 4K Dead and Infinite Mario Bros. Now watch him make a game in 48 hours.

Persson designed Metagun for indie game contest Ludum Dare, an accelerated game development event where designers make games from scratch in a weekend, based on a theme suggested by community.

We featured Metagun as our LunchTimeWaster on Monday. It's a game where you have a gun that shoots people. By which I mean people, not bullets, are shot out of the gun. These people then starting shooting you - with bullets, not people - and it all gets very confusing. And it's just as confusing to read those sentences again.

Persson recorded the entire process of making Metagun and you can watch it below in appropriately accelerated time.

    Wait, what? Wasn't this featured a couple of posts ago?

      Yes, but I'd already scheduled this post before the US guys wrote theirs. And mine is better!

        "It’s a game where you have a gun that shoots people. By which I mean people, not bullets, are shot out of the gun. These people then starting shooting you – with bullets, not people – and it all gets very confusing. And it’s just as confusing to read those sentences again."

        Opposed to the US Post:

        "Have you ever wondered what a computer game looks like, from start to finish, as it's being programmed? If so, then this time-lapse video of one man's creation of Metagun (for Ludum Dare 18) will truly amaze you. Video inside."

        Yep, yours is better!

          Thanks!

        Your's is definitely better.

        Persson AKA Notch deserves every cent he makes, the man is a development machine and works awesomely with the fans of his games (You need only follow the minecraft development to get an idea)

    Notch it a programming genius. He worked on Minecraft for 7 days before he released it in its initial form.
