Notch only just arrived in the county on a suborbital jet from Sweden, but he's already started designing a three-sided paradise that's greener than the water in Robert Bowling's Hepatitis Seas. There's little to see at this early stage, but the county office will send inspectors to Notchtopia regularly—or just as soon as the 20 minute long red light at the region's border finally turns green, too.

Tyler grew up in Silicon Valley during the '80s and '90s, playing games like Zork and Arkanoid on early PCs. He was later captivated by Myst, SimCity, Civilization, Command & Conquer, all the shooters they call "boomer shooters" now, and PS1 classic Bushido Blade (that's right: he had Bleem!). Tyler joined PC Gamer in 2011, and today he's focused on the site's news coverage. His hobbies include amateur boxing and adding to his 1,200-plus hours in Rocket League.
