Dungeon Master 2, Doom, X-Com Can look directly at the sun with only minor permanent damage. @notch Used to have a great hat, gave it away, now has a new hat. Minecraft is the brainchild of Markus Persson. Rumors have it that he programmed it during a power outage in the summer of 1812 while he was carrying infants out of a burning church which was built on the back of a giant opossum. Also he is 11'6" tall and glows in the dark.
