We have tried adding secrets and techniques to the sport before. Small things, like obscure crafting recipes or bizarre habits, and every little thing at all times gets found out instantly. Irrespective of how obscure we make a brand new feature, it's absolutely documented inside hours of a new release. That is awesome, and an amazing example of how devoted some Minecraft gamers are, nevertheless it additionally means we won't actually disguise anything good in the game even when we tried. Minecraft So some time in the past, I did some deliberately obscure code in the title display to change two letters round, making it say "Minceraft" (old operating gag, there's even a "minceraft" mockup t shirt design we did) instead of "Minecraft" on every 10000th game launch or so, and no person discovered it! I used to be so blissful about that, I finally knew one thing about the sport the gamers did not know.Flash ahead to this GDC a couple of days ago, I'm doing an interview with Chris Hecker, and he asks me if there's anything no one has present in the game, and that i say sure. I should've mentioned no, however I said yes. Then I begin getting emails and tweets about it, individuals start getting excited, and figuring out how minor the key is, I attempt to tell people it's a really minor secret. That seems to gasoline the flames. A reporter from a well known gaming site wants to run an article on it, and that i tell him not to. Getting folks hyped up about an intentional typo is not really a superb technique to spend everybody's time.There's numerous cool stuff to learn from this, although. One is that it Is feasible to cover stuff in plain sight, but once individuals go on the lookout for it, they will find it. Another thing is that individuals seem to wish to get excited over issues, even in case you tell them it is nothing major.I am impressed and relieved you discovered it. I will not comment on it outdoors of this subreddit.
