On this fine day, we've discovered that the ever-popular game Minecraft (still in pre-release form) has reached a user base of 10 million. Not only that, but it sold 3 million copies worldwide and it's not even a complete game. That's impressive shit, you have to admit. Naturally, with so much success, some nasty lawyer must be around, hoping to get something out of it - maybe through a pointless lawsuit of some sort? Well, you guessed it. We even saw that one happening. A few weeks ago, a Swedish law firm which represents Bethesda has started legal proceedings against the Minecraft developer, disputing the studio's new project, or rather, it's name -- Scrolls.
Markus "Notch" Persson, the creator of Minecraft, came up, what he thinks might be the solution to this dispute. Here's Notch's response in full (take from a post which he made on his blog today):
Hey, Bethesda! Let's settle this!
I am back, and I am excited.
Marriage has been wonderful so far, and nobody sabotaged my computer while I was gone.
The only negative thing going on at this moment is the Scrolls trademark lawsuit nonsense, and I think I came up with the perfect solution: Remember that scene in Game of Thrones where Tyrion chose a trial by battle in the Eyrie? Well, let's do that instead! I challenge Bethesda to a game of Quake 3. Three of our best warriors against three of your best warriors. We select one level, you select the other, we randomize the order. 20 minute matches, highest total frag count per team across both levels wins.
If we win, you drop the lawsuit.
If you win, we will change the name of Scrolls to something you're fine with.
Regardless of the outcome, we could still have a small text somewhere saying our game is not related to your game series in any way, if you wish.
I am serious, by the way.
Cool idea. Doubt they'll say 'yes' but it's a cool idea nonetheless.
