“Minecraft: The Story Of Mojang” Now Streaming For Free On YouTube

There it is, in its entirety. All one-hour, forty-four minutes, and eighteen seconds of Minecraft history.

While Minecraft: The Story of Mojang is available for free on YouTube, there are options to support the documentary-makers (2 Player Productions) available elsewhere.

A $20 DVD set includes two discs with the full documentary, a commentary track, the Kickstarter proof of concept short, the 3-part “Making of Scrolls” series, Notch: The Final Interview, and more.

An $8 DRM-free version of the documentary is available on the documentary’s official website and for $4 more, buyers can opt for a deluxe version, which includes some bonueses found with the physical DVDs. The soundtrack is also available for $6.99 on Bandcamp.

From the films official website:

Minecraft: The Story of Mojang is a feature-length documentary that follows the young company over the course of its first year as their profile expanded across the world stage and into the homes of millions of gamers. Featuring insights from industry icons (Peter Molyneux, Tim Schafer), journalists (Geoff Keighley, Stephen Totilo), tastemakers (Gabe & Tycho of Penny Arcade), and players profoundly impacted by the game (Yogscast, The Shaft, Minecraft Teacher), the film serves as a time capsule for one of this generation’s most unorthodox success stories.”
