Around a week ago the creator of Minecraft, Markus Persson, tweeted that the sequel to Minecraft was in development, but that Minecraft 2 was just a temporary name. Keep in mind that we are under the impression that he spelled ‘Minicraft 2’ as a typo, seeing as there is Minecraft and nothing else.
Minicraft 2 is being worked on, for no good reason. It needs a better name, though.

He recently tweeted that he has a name for the game, calling it MiniTale. For those of who aren’t aware, Persson recently stepped down as lead developer of Minecraft.
Finally came up with a decent name for <the_game_i_need_to_rename>! MiniTale. Even snagged the .com and .net for it, yay
