July edition includes interviews with Notch, Ian Livingstone and BlitzTech

Minecraft creator Markus 'Notch' Persson has been at the centre of one of the industry's most infamous overnight success stories.

In Develop issue 119 he talks in depth about life in the spotlight, fending off VCs, and his experience of establishing a studio under the watch of the entire industry.

In the same issue, out today, we round up all the winners from the recent Develop Awards, and interview Eidos president and Games Workshop founder Ian Livingstone about a lifetime of achievement in the wake of his acceptance of the Development Legend accolade.

Elsewhere the Spanish games industry goes under the Develop microscope, and we speak to BlitzTech about its new character animation solution Kitsu.

There's also all the latest news, tools, tech and service news, and opinion from industry leaders.
