Game designer Markus 'Notch' Persson, best known as the creator of Minecraft, confessed to having turned down a job offer, which was available to him while he was developing Minecraft.
As soon as Minecraft became popular before its release, he was invited to Valve's offices and he had a chat with company CEO Gabe Newell. They talked until Persson realized he was actually in the middle of a job interview. Later on, he was offered a position at Valve, although the game designer/programmer politely rejected the offer, even though he was tempted (who the hell wouldn't be?).
"Somehow, I felt that Minecraft was maybe my chance to create a Valve, rather than work at Valve," said Persson.
The info is noted in the book Minecraft: The Unlikely Tale of Markus 'Notch' Persson and the Game that Changed Everything.
