The official Minecraft Annual 2017 is a celebration of the game and its community. Inside you'll find challenges set by the Mojang team as well as famous YouTubers like Stampy Cat and FyreUK. There are survival strategies and challenges, Story Mode and Realms features and step-by-step guides to recreate builds from your favourite YouTubers' worlds. And you can read about the ways in which Minecraft has changed the world, from the charitable Block-by-Block foundation, to the epic MineCon event. With all this and more, Minecraft fans will be enjoying the official Annual well into 2017.
Mojang is the Swedish video game developer that introduced the world to Minecraft, the gaming sensation built upon blocks. Markus 'Notch' Persson founded the company so that he could give up his day job and go into full-time Creative Mode with his best friend Carl Manneh. The alpha version of Minecraft was launched in 2009, and the official game went on sale in 2011. Since then 70 million copies have been sold. It is now the third best-selling video game of all time. Mojang HQ has also developed Scrolls, Cobalt, and Crown and Council. Mojang was bought by Microsoft in 2014, but remains the hub of the Minecraft empire.
