Markus “Notch” Persson has enlisted the help of fellow Swede and Love-maker Eskil Steenberg to improve Minecraft’s graphics

“I was asked to help them use a few graphics extensions in OpenGL,” Steenberg told Eurogamer. “I’m probably gonna help him with some graphic stuff. He actually asked me to help him with some stuff.”

Minecraft looks as though it was drawn in crayon. It’s sold more than 1 million copies. There are more quotes through there.

    Adding graphic acceleration to Minecraft would be great. I can’t even force anti-aliasing through the drivers.

    They’re not hiring Steenberg. He’ll just help out with some graphics stuff.
