  1. Ouya: The $99 Android-Based Gaming Console That’s Woman-Led And Totally Awesome

    million dollar lady

    I apologize, dear readers -- we've been utterly remiss in reporting about Ouya, the Kickstarter sensation that aims to pack an open, Android-based game platform and development kit into a teensy console, effectively bringing the best parts about hackable indie gaming to the television. In only eight hours, Ouya raised $1 million, surpassing its original goal of crowdfunding $950,000 in 30 days. With just 35 hours remaining on their Kickstarter, Ouya has raised $7,163,016, from a total of 53,891 people interested in the project. Oh, and the icing of top of this so-far successful gaming project cake? The entire project is led by gaming industry veteran Julie Uhrman. Hit the jump to find out more about this woman-led, revolutionary console!

  2. Minecraft Sued by Notorious Patent Troll Over Software

    It just isn't the weekend if someone isn't being sued over something frivolous. Uniloc, a company best known for suing scads of others, has filed suit against the developer of Minecraft -- Mojang -- over software patents. Specifically, the patents are in reference to a method used to prevent unauthorized access to data. It's this kind of broad language that has allowed Uniloc to happily start suing others like publisher Electronic Arts and now Mojang. This will clearly end well.

  3. Mojang’s CCG Scrolls Goes Alpha

    The time has come for Mojang's second game, a digital collectible card battle game, Scrolls. Though, to be clear, the alpha has come; not the final build. Mojang fans will recall that early released alpha versions of their products don't exactly go poorly, as that was the route the ever popular Minecraft took long before it ever released as a "retail" build. The game isn't downloadable by all, however, and Mojang will be sending out alpha keys via email to a modestly sized list of lucky participants. More details below.

  5. Mojang and Bethesda Settle “Scrolls” Battle

    Mojang founder and Minecraft creator Markus Persson (AKA Notch) has announced via Twitter that the company has settled their ongoing battle with ZeniMax Media -- which owns game studio Bethesda -- over the "scrolls" name. With the legal issues out of the way, this will hopefully clear the path for Mojang's forthcoming Scrolls game to become a reality. Sadly, it probably means that Notch's proposed Mojang/Bethesda Quake 3 duel is off the table.

  6. Bukkit Team Joins Mojang, Minecraft About To Get Way More Mod-Friendly

    Mojang, indie-superstar turned up-and-coming publisher sweetheart, has just increased its numbers by four after absorbing the main developers of Bukkit, an extremely popular Minecraft server mod. Bukkit sprung up in early 2011 largely because the server implementation in vanilla Minecraft was, and for the moment still is, lacking at best. On top of that, mod implementation (particularly multiplayer mod implementation) is practically impossible in vanilla Minecraft. Minecrafters, your crazy server problems are not long for this world.

  7. Notch Talks Psychonauts 2 Hype, If It’ll Actually Happen

    Back when Minecraft creator Notch tweeted that he'd fund a sequel to Psychonauts, the gaming Internet freaked out, seeing as how Psychonauts is one of the best video games ever made, but unfortunately didn't make enough money to convince publishers to fund a sequel. After Notch and Tim Schafer tweeted a bit about the situation, they went quiet for the most part, and the news got overshadowed by Tim Schafer' development studio, Double Fine, raising almost two million dollars on Kickstarter for the development of an adventure game. Notch spoke up on his blog about the Psychonauts sequel, giving everyone a status update, and some insight into what caused him to make that initial tweet offering to fund the game.

  9. Mojang, Cheezburger Network, Destructoid to Join Reddit in SOPA Blackout

    Rumors of SOPA protest blackouts have been swirling around like crazy as of late. Wikipedia was, and may still be, considering a blackout. Reportedly, a number of Internet giants are debating the same action. That being the case, it was a big deal when reddit finally got the ball rolling by confirming a January 18th protest blackout. Since then, the ball has continued to roll, picking up Mojang, the Cheezburger Network, and Destructoid.

  10. Mojang Working With LEGO to Make Official LEGO Minecraft Sets

    Minecraft is basically cyber-LEGOs in spirit. Granted, there have been plenty of other attempts at creating cyber-LEGOs, all of which were questionably successful. However, none of them took off the way Minecraft did. Now, it seems like Minecraft might have a chance to retcon its history, so to speak, and get its own, official LEGO playsets. Mojang is working with LEGO through the CUUSOO system to get several different models made and hopefully open the door to more Minecraft LEGOs down the road.
