March Mayhem 2011 Victors: MOJANG AB!!!

That's right.

After defeating Nintendo, Namco Bandai, Epic Games, and Obsidian, and THEN going head-to-head with BIOWARE, the indie developer company Mojang, which was formed LAST YEAR, managed to win the whole thing!

Congratulations to Mojang for winning this contest with only ONE released game: Minecraft, and one promised game: Scrolls!

I honestly can't believe it.

I'm more interested in how Mojang totally demolished the competition before BioWare.

But beating BioWare is an amazing feat, especially with just the Minecraft community!

I'm still wondering how they just pushed Nintendo out of the way, off to the side. Dude.

Congratulations to Mojang!

I sense great things in the future of Minecraft, though it would be foolish of me to not think that it had a great future anyways.

I'm usually all for the underdog, but still. Just no.

I'm with masq, when I saw them up against valve I kind of felt they would have gotten their asses kicked. (And they might have, had valve posted an announcement about it across all their games, which they did in the past.)
