Markus Persson (Notch), the creator of the uber-popular indie hit game Minecraft, caused a bit of a storm early last week when he developed an entry for the 22nd Ludum Dare accelerated game development competition. It was called Minecraft, and saw Notch put together a Zelda-like mini Action RPG in just 48 hours. You can play the game in your browser.

The game was instantly popular, but just thought to be a bit of fun for Notch who must of had some spare time. Now it looks as though Minicraft is set to continue as Notch has confirmed via his Twitter account that Minicraft 2 is in development.

Two things will be different about the second game. The first is that the name will be changed as Notch believes, “it needs a better name.” The second is an expansion of the gameplay, which when asked on Twitter about the direction he was taking, Notch explained he is creating an, “action roguelike with crafting and modifiable terrain.”

I don’t think many people will be complaining about Notch spending more time developing a follow-up to Minecraft. It was certainly a nice distraction in the run up to the holiday weekend, plus the fact it was free and played in your browser meant there were no barriers to getting into the game for anyone sat at a computer.

Will Minicraft 2 get as popular as Minecraft? No. But if Notch keeps building up a series it could eventually lead to a game people are willing to pay for across iOS, Android, and Nintendo and Sony handheld devices. I also doubt the Minecraft name will disappear. Instead, we’ll just get something better than a “2″ at the end for the second game.
