Bethesda is a very big developer with very big resources and a really big legal team.
Mojang is about eight dudes and a snack budget.
Bethesda is currently suing Mojang for touching their stuff, their copyright to be direct, and wants to change Mojang’s upcoming project name to something other than Scrolls.
The weird thing though, is that both developers have admitted to being big fans of each other.
Each apparently at the mercy of their legal team, and by that I mean Bethesda being at the mercy of their legal team seems to have put a little love letter to Mojang in the form of the ‘Notched Pickaxe’ easter egg in Elder Scrolls: Skyrim.
To any fan of Minecraft, the joke should immediately be apparent.Skyrim Playfully Leaves Easter Egg For Legal Defendant,
