I suppose this is the ultimate sign of having made it, being mocked by the Simpsons. That’s how Markus “Notch” Persson feels at least, after one of the legendary stalwarts of pop culture decided to parody the developer’s block-building simulator in their introduction. You can watch the full thing below.
Understandably, Persson was in a small amount of shock, writing on Twitter that he wasn’t “sure how I feel about it”. He later added: “I STILL feel a bit like it’s just this small game I made at home. It’s so weird to have all these things happen.”
Where to next for Minecraft and Notch, one wonders. Saturday Night Live? Jimmy Kimmel?
