I'm a Mojangster!

First off: Sorry for this being late, I really don't have as much time to update my blog as I'd like :( Now that that's out of the way...

I work for Mojang now! Hurrah! I guess this technically means I'm now a real living Game Developer and that's pretty cool and stuff. Living the dream and so forth.

I'll be mostly responsible for designing/implementing both the client and server modding API for Minecraft, and that's a pretty big job, but I'm allowed to go tinkering off and working on other Minecrafty stuff in general; I've only been hired for a week, and I've already made a nice little list of bugs that I've fixed!

So this is pretty cool and all, but unfortunately it's not all fun and games (Get it? Haha. Hah. Sorry...) as it's actually a pretty big life changer for both me and Ola; we'll be moving to Sweden within the next 2/3 months, and that's both scary and awesome. Mostly scary. But pretty awesome. And scary. Oh god.

We're looking for a place to live now, and it's not easy. From what we've been told, finding an apartment in a populated area in Sweden is like finding a "you've won a free ipad" advert that won't steal your credit card info. Anyone have any advice or know any way of helping out? I'd appreciate it!

The rest of the Bukkit guys got hired (Grum, EvilSeph, Tahg) but won't be moving just yet. I'll be foreverabone in Sweden! We're set on going to visit the Mojang offices again towards the end of this month, so that'll be fun!

In other news (and putting the scary "moving country" thing out of my mind), Mass Effect 3 came out and it's a lot of fun! Except Multiplayer. I just can't play games like that online with random people, I don't know how anyone can survive it :(

That's all for now. I've ran out of things to blog about that I'm not sworn to secrecy! Ciao!

Well, if you'd like to live about one hour outside of Stockholm with bus, Norrtälje is nice.
Sure, there's not tons of avalible apartements here, but there's still a couple avalible. Especially for students.

And if you'd like to buy yourselves a extremely cheap house about one hour away from Norrtälje (And thus Stockholm) that's an option too... :D

No, just kidding, but I'm hoping you'll find something nice and that moving to Sweden will turn out just fine! :)

Also I wish you all the luck with the API, me and my friends have huge expectations wich we belive you'll fullfill :)

Hi dinner.

I Live in Finland.. You should move here.. instead.. =D well Yeah maybe too long ferry ride to work..

Anyways, get a car and move to some sub urban area.. It's "cheaper" and easier...

Good luck on your move.. Ouh choose Victor EK for your moving company I have worked with them.. They are the best.

"Back" and "Quit" buttons to OutOfMemoryScreen!! I Love You! I was wondering where those were since I bought Minecraft. Good Luck in Sweden, and Thank You for improving The Game.

Oh, and Mass Effect 3 multiplayer is actually really Fun, you just gotta have a team of people you know or that just know how to play the game.
