1. Minecraft was created in just 6 days

The creator of Minecraft Notch aka Markus Persson created the first version of Minecraft within just six days. The game primarily just had two blocks: grass and cobblestone. Players can mine or place any of these blocks. Players can also summon a non-playable character who would just run around. At that time the game was called cave game instead of the iconic name Minecraft. Notch initially released the game on the TIGSource forum in May 2009 as an independent developer. After hearing feedback from the user’s Notch will update the game.

We all know killing mobs in Minecraft drops something. For instance, pigs drop raw pork and cows drop raw beef and leather. Each and every mob drop is very important to the game as it helps players progress. Generally, if a player is killed his loot will be dropped. But if the player named Notch gets killed he will drop an Apple along with whatever is there on his inventory. Notch is none other than the creator of Minecraft. He coded such that if a player kills him he drops an Apple. Though nowadays we cannot find Notch playing the game, especially after he sold the game to Microsoft.

3. DeadMau5 is a very special player

Some Minecraft players have something very unique with their accounts. It might be their name or the capes. Minecraft sometimes treats some players with something special. billyK_ is one such player. He has been asking Mojang to add turtles to the game for a long time. Mojang eventually added turtles in the 1.13 aquatic update. But there is one more player who has very unique skin. No one can obtain it.

4. Minecraft’s first NPC characters

Every Minecraft must have at least encountered once the villagers. Villagers are the non-playable characters from Minecraft. They are spawned in villages and have their own profession. Players can trade with them to get items. But way before that, there were few non-playable characters. These characters look very weird with the Minecraft visuals. There were a total of four:

  • Beast Boy
  • Steve
  • Black steve ( i am not making this up, Mojang literally named him that)
  • Rana

These mobs were originally added in the version index 0.31. But later removed in the next update. Still, no one knows why these were added and why they got removed. Only Mojang can answer that.

5. Removed Herobrine

The name Herobrine gives chills to many players. Herobrine is said to be the dead brother of Notch. He somehow embeds into the game and haunts players. From the original creepypasta, Herobrine creates random constructions, such as sand pyramids in oceans and long 2×2 tunnels. He also cuts off all the leaves from trees. Herobrine first appeared in a single image detailing an encounter.

The first photo of Herobrine’s first canonical sighting was posted on 4chan’s paranormal board in August 2010 but gained little attention. It stated how Herobrine had appeared in someone’s single-player game, littering the map with various pyramids and tunnels. The post has since been deleted. It is the first media to name him Herobrine.

It was only later that Herobrine grew in popularity when the Brocraft stream Copeland photoshopped Herobrine into several screenshots to show to his chat. He had recently taken a liking to the story and wished to be a part of it. After getting largely good reactions, he decided to stage a hoax.

He has explained exactly how that took place in an email. Herobrine never existed in the game, at least in the vanilla version. But why did people believe in Herobrine? Thanks to the pranksters from Mojang. In the update in 1.6.6 patch notes, Moajng added: Removed Herobrine. This led to many people believing in Herobrine. But This was a joke, referring to Notch partially removing the human mob’s essential code.

6. Learn Chemistry in Minecraft

Minecraft doesn’t just stop at being a game. It has become an educational tool as well. Many teachers around the world use Minecraft as an educational tool to help students learn.

7. Minecraft was inspired from Infiniminer

Infiniminer is an open-source multi-player block-based sandbox building and digging game, inspired by the games Infinifrag, Team Fortress 2, and Motherload, in which the player plays as a miner searching for minerals by carving tunnels through procedurally generated block-based maps and building structures. According to Notch, Infiniminer was the game I wanted to do.


Notch enjoyed the game, but found it flawed, noting that while the building was fun, there wasn’t enough variation, and he thought that the big red and blue team-colored blocks were pretty horrible. He believed that a fantasy game in that style “would work really really well”, so he created a simple first-person engine in the Infimininer style, reusing some art and code from multiple earlier projects, to create the cave game tech test, which would eventually go on to become Minecraft.

8. The creeper was a mistake

If there is a mob hated by all Minecraft players then it is the creeper. Silently sneaking behind players and destroying their hard build work within a fraction of a second. These explosive mobs were actually a mistake. “The creepers were a mistake,” Notch revealed in the 2012 documentary Minecraft: The Story of Mojang. “I don’t have any modeling programs to do the models, I just write them in code.

And I accidentally made them tall instead of long, so it was like a tall thing with four little feet. And that became the creeper. As opposed to a pig.” Notch worked on it a bit more to create a mob that is hated by all. A tip for people who are annoyed by creepers, pet a cat. Creepers are scared of cards and flee away.

9. An entire scale replica of Denmark

Minecraft players have created some very astonishing greetings in-game. From 16 bit computers to working games inside Minecraft. But this one is very different. The Danish Geodata Agency has completely mapped out the entire country of Denmark on a 1:1 scale and released it to the public.

According to the news site DK, the two men behind the project are Simon Kokkendorf and Thorbjørn Nielsen said that they want to use the impressive model for educational purposes like teaching students about urban planning and that sort of stuff.

10. The forgotten dimension

There are three dimensions in minecarts as of now. But there was a dimension Mojang was planning to add which never saw the day of light. The Sky Dimension was first announced when Notch tweeted a picture of the dimension. It was probably made to be like a “heaven,” because the Nether was considered to be like a hell. The Sky Dimension was not completely confirmed until Notch released an update via Twitter stating: “And because PC Gamer made such a big deal of the Sky Dimension, I guess I’ll have to finish it. Consider it confirmed.”

In a live webcast on the Swedish gaming site, Notch revealed that the Sky Dimension would “probably be a dream world” and that when “you go to bed there is a certain chance that you get dragged into the dream world instead. Then you will be able to do it on purpose later on.” The Sky Dimension was originally planned for the Adventure Update, but Notch put it on hold until the Nether was more fun. But later this concept was used to create the End dimension.
