What is best in life? If you answered "griefing your co-workers with a violin simulation app," then you just might work at Mojang. Last we heard, the indie developers that brought you Minecraft were getting settled into their new office. Now that they're comfortable, they've got more intimate details they'd like to share with you this week. That's right—intimate, as in the YouTube videos they love and the iPad apps they loathe.

PC Gamer is always willing to release secret cables exposing embarrassing developer secrets. The last Minecraft diary contained information on new merchandise and Mojang's next game. This new diary introduces the staff, has updates on the merchandise, and talks about prioritizing new features.

PC Gamer's spies are everywhere. When developers write in their heart-embossed, miniature-lock diaries, a PC Gamer agent is there to look underneath their pillow, flip through it while they're at gymnastics practice, and pass on the intimate secret of who they be crushin' on to you.

Of course, when an independent developer wants to openly share what it's up to, it saves us the hard work of bedroom infiltration. Minecraft developer Mojang Specifications has done just that, and they plan to provide us with behind-the-scenes information about what they're working on about every other week. Today, Jakob Porser writes about the current state of Mojang's kitchen, about the dev's plans for adorable, terrifying merchandise and grants a further hint about Mojang's next game.
