Don't forget silverfish, squid, villagers, shulkers, cave spiders, gaurdians, and bats.

how's the university going?:) Did you tell someone yet about mineblocks?:D

It is going well so far, but it's making me SUPER BUSY! But my roommate is nice and I'm having some fun. Except when I accidentally missed one of my classes because of a scheduling issue (my bad!). xD
One of my professors already knew about Mine Blocks and had me talk about it in class. It was a bit awkward for me, because I don't really like to talk to people about it, but it was still pretty cool. Someone in the class even told me that they already played the game before, and that they used to have a lot of fun playing it. So that was a first - something I never really expected to happen!

What if Mojang liked Mine Blocks and wanted you to work with them , what would you do ?

Gosh I don't know. Probably!
I just have to keep in mind: I'm focused on college right now, I own all of the rights on my game development, and I really enjoy working alone. Everything would be turned upside-down if I worked for Mojang. I bet it would pay off in the end though - a "stable" job doing what I love, meeting amazing developers and helping build the community I always loved. Wouldn't that be the best job ever?

On a scale from 1 to 10 how weird are you?

Hmm I don't think the scale works that way tbh.
Here are some recent examples of weirdness maybe?
I tried to hold back in the recent update video. But I somehow ended up putting extra effort into adding weirdness:
- Snakes playing instruments every time I said "but"
- Photoshopping Patrick on various things
- Comparing subscribers to jelly beans in a jar...
- An old man mentioning how it's hard to predict the future
- Neat, naice, *fanfare*, dog, etc
Greenbean casserole?
But yes, I do hold back. Maybe some day I'll make another game that makes less sense than "The Game That Is Random".

What qualities do you think are necessary to having a successful career path?

If you want to work for yourself, you should be passionate, adaptive, risky, and clever. Network with people who share your interests, and always seek potentially rewarding opportunities.
It helps to be able to know yourself well, so you can extract these qualities and improve them consciously :) You can't doubt yourself - believe you will succeed!

5) It'll be possible to add your own blocks or items (like modding the game)? 6) Can u give me all blocks' icons to upload 'em in the Wiki? :v 7) Will you add an option to change the brightness of the game?

Tobias Nahuel Alcaráz
Each block is a separate assets in the game, so "sending them all" will require several hours of opening them in an image editor, rescaling them, then saving to a unique filename.
So, it's not really a practical thing for me to do right now. I'll be doing it eventually though - possibly in 1.31!
