In February of last year 2 Player Productions launched its documentary project Minecraft: The Story of Mojang on Kickstarter — and this weekend the movie will have its world premiere on Xbox Live. The documentary covers the first year of Mojang, the game studio founded by Swedish developer Markus "Notch" Persson, and will air free for Xbox Live Gold subscribers on Saturday, December 22nd. It will be available in nine different countries, including the United States, United Kingdom, Ireland, France, and Sweden itself.
The filmmakers originally sought $150,000 in backing, but ultimately raised more than $210,000 to fund the project. For Xbox Live Gold members that would like to see the end result, a special Minecraft tile will appear on the Xbox Live dashboard with a trailer and local viewing times.
