Minecraft creator is considering adding Achievements to the game

Minecraft creator Markus Persson is considering adding Achievements to the game.

Speaking with Indie Games, Persson admitted he is a fan of Achievements.

"Yeah, I like achievements. I know a lot of people don't, but I like them," he said. "I've had the idea to make achievements kind of like the in-game questing. So you'd be able to see the first achievement in a tree of achievements, and you have to unlock the top ones first before you can unlock the ones further down.

"So the first one might be to chop down a tree, or kill a chicken, and then these branch into more things you can do. Hopefully it would encourage people to try new areas."

Persson said that when an Achievement tree is finished, it could "converge into a big task, like kill a dragon or something," which would add narrative to the skill tree.

Minecraft has currently sold over 1.4 million copies and is coming to both iOS and Android this year.
