  • Here is what Minecraft creator Notch had to say about the Achievement system in Minecraft:

    “I like achievements. I know a lot of people don’t, but I like them. I’ve had the idea to make achievements kind of like the in-game questing. So you’d be able to see the first achievement in a tree of achievements, and you unlock the top ones first before you can unlock the ones further down. So the first one might be to chop down a tree, or kill a chicken, and then these branch into more things you can do. Hopefully it would encourage people to try new areas. It could converge into a big task, like kill a dragon or something, which would put a kind of narrative into the achievement tree.” When asked if Achievements may endanger the open nature of the game and instead take players down a preset path, Notch replied, “Definitely. I’d want these achievements to feel like things you can try, rather than these are things you have to do. People can follow them, but only if they want to. Achievements will NOT be chores like ‘cut down 10000 trees’, but rather challenges like ‘ride a pig off a cliff’. Stats, however, will be used to keep track of how many trees you have cut down. The long term plan is to show achievements and stats from the profile page on minecraft.net as well, in case you want to brag.”
