Owens said the film is expected to land December 7, but that date is not finalized. The documentary began its life as a Kickstarter project from 2 Player Productions in February 2011 and surpassed its $150,000 target, raking in a total of $210,297 when it closed in March of that year.

2 Player Productions is also working on a documentary concerning Mojang's new game Scrolls, as well as a feature-length film with Double Fine about its upcoming Kickstarter-funded adventure game.

Minecraft: The Story of Mojang follows Notch and documents the challenges he faced during the company's first year of existence. It addresses the massive success of Minecraft, and also features insight from journalists and industry professionals.
