developer Mojang has added a new member to its deliberately small development team, announcing that Henrik Pettersson has joined the staff as a graphical artist.
The announcement was made via
the personal Twitter account of Mojang founder Markus Persson on Monday.
Pettersson specializes in 2D art, which he will contribute to Mojang's Scrolls
, according to
a post on his Twitter account this morning.
Prior to Mojang, Pettersson was at Fabrication Games
, working on titles that include 2D platformer Un Juego de Huevos
for the Zeebo
, a low cost download-only console developed for emerging markets. Fabrication also developed iOS titles Bug Fest
and Free Zombie Hero: Kill Angry War Ninja
, among others.
Mojang's popular Minecraft recently surpassed
over 3 million sales. The game is set to have a specialized convention
in Las Vegas later this year.
Despite its success, Mojang has remained intentionally small: its staff headcount is still under twenty, by all accounts.
