Introversion Software is a UK based company that originally labeled itself "The last of the bedroom programmers" due to the team working out of their homes rather than having an office. (They finally moved into an office when working on their fourth game.) The company was founded in 2001 by three friends, Chris Delay, Mark Morris and Thomas Arundel, who met when they were undergraduates at Imperial College London.[2] Their first game, Uplink was programmed and designed almost exclusively by Chris, while Mark and Tom handled marketing, materials and the other 'business' elements. Their small initial investment enabled them to buy CD-Rs and printer cartridges. Early copies of the game were hand-made. The company was able to fully make back their investment within a few hours of accepting orders. A large community formed, and the team, along with a new programmer Andy Bainbridge started work on two new games, Darwinia and DEFCON.

It seems like a lot of people will increase there amount if Desura keys are added. I will probably increase my contribution by triple. (I'm not competing with you utillich, I just had limited funds and hadn't played the games yet.)

Awesome productive day today. If I had days like today regularly I'd have done 10 games by now instead of 5

Brilliant short film by those talented @CorridorDigital boys, with an amazing cameo by Dean Hall! @rocket2guns T.co

A company with lots of staff doesn't always enable people to make games. Sometimes it's better to be able to fail silently

I think it's got to be bad news for Minecraft. But good news for gamers, because now Notch is free to make *whatever* next

@eJ9019 Minecraft made him rich, Mojang will have felt like a burden that was stopping him doing what he wanted

Pretty insane news @Notch. Must confess I didn't believe the rumour, but I think I understand. Your own company became the baggage

@thedarkhog Sadly we don't have $2.5B lying around
