Notch Made a Game Called Prelude of the Chambered And You Can Play it NOW!

Minecraft creator, genius and moneybags Notch made a whole new game in 48 hours as part of the Ludum Dare competition. Clearly not satisfied with resting on the laurels (and giant pile of gold bullion) of Minecraft, Notch can create enjoyable new gaming experiences in the time it takes most of us to blink. I love Notch, and I kind of hope he will adopt me and raise me as his protege. Actually, even better, I would just like him to wheel me around in a solid gold minecart.

I've played his new creation Prelude of the Chambered (but not yet finished it due to my rush to share it with you) and I can attest that it is pretty good! It's a dungeon-crawler with plenty of puzzles to solve and bats to punch!

This is my own screenshot! I didn't even nick it!
But don't take my word for it! You can play it yourself right now, right HERE for free! And you may as well, because there's absolutely nothing else happening on the Internet right now!


  1. I love this. Notch is amazing. I was lucky enough to get to meet him at E3. He signed a minecraft t-shirt for me, advised I check out the minecraft mobile booth (where i got an extremely rare minecraft helmet!) and chatted about his celebrity for a moment. I've met a few big game developers on my E3 trips over the past few years, but he was definitely the coolest to meet.

  2. Also, I want to add it wasn't a "meet and greet" I found him checking out The Old Republic and ran to him like a child after an ice cream truck screaming "heeeey waiiit!"
