Minecraft developer Notch announced that he's currently working on a sequel to his Ludum Dare 22 entry Minicraft, a top-down, browser-based Minecraft adaptation that was created in under 48 hours.

Why? "For no good reason," Notch claims.

Notch has issued no word as to whether Minicraft 2 will be developed in a similarly short timeframe, or if the project will be a more fleshed-out venture. He revealed, however, that he aims to create an "action roguelike with crafting and modifiable terrain," and notes that he's currently searching for a better title.
