Minecraft’s Spencer Kern builds a Pokemon Go charging center – Business Insider
How much of a phenomenon is Pokémon Go? Enough so that it’s started something of a civil war between members of the team behind the video game sensation Minecraft.
See, when the game first launched, Mojang — the Sweden-based game studio that created Minecraft, acquired by Microsoft for $2.5 billion in 2014 — tried to get all employees to unify and join up with Team Mystic, Pokémon Go’s blue team.
But here in America, the Bellevue, Washington-based Minecraft team was more split. Some of them were willing to go along with the Swedes, while others wanted to go with the red Team Valor or the yellow Team Instinct.
