The Minecraft Marketplace has been around for nearly 2 years and in that time, teams have expanded, marketplace partners have been accepted and declined and many hours has gone into content. But not many people have asked questions to the partners themselves.
So I decided to ask a Minecraft partner a few questions based on their team and the Marketplace.
I recently interviewed Miste who was recently accepted. I asked him who he was and which team he was on. He responded: “I am known as Miste, I am 16 and I am from France. I have been playing Minecraft Bedrock for 4 years and I was previously in the server side development of MCBE. I recently started to look at what we can do on client side and rediscovered all the behavior and the resource pack stuff. I tried the scripting API and made cool stuff that I posted on Twitter and two or three weeks later I joined Blockception.”
That was an interesting response to discover that he is a very technical person. I decided to dive deeper into his team knowledge and asked him what his role on the team is. He said: “I am actually in the technical team inside Blockception. My role is to work on all the redstone & behavior (& scripting when it will be out) stuff that is animating our maps. I am also working on some other things but that’s under NDA :P”
As the Marketplace has been around for some number of years, it has received mixed opinions. So I wanted to know his opinion when he first heard of the idea of the marketplace. He stated:”I was quite surprised but I think that is a really good idea from Microsoft as it allows everyone to access to a very good quality content on every devices for little money”
I find interesting that after all of these years the marketplace has been up and running, more teams have joined. Some of them has made some mind blowing content. But I am curious which marketplace team was his favorite. He responded with “I would say that my favourites Minecraft Marketplace Partner teams are Blockception and Noxcrew”
Some good choices my friend. As he has been around in the Minecraft community for quite some time, I wanted to know if he had any guilt pleasures that no one else knows about. He said to me “Watching Youtube videos on a screen with the new scripting API :p”. Now that does sounds amazing. I do not judge you my friend.
As Miste said he is a technical guy. He has even made a Minecraft Bedrock Bot to update people on updates, news articles and tweets. This can be run on a discord server. Sounds cool right?
