The big news on Monday was that Microsoft is buying Mojang, the company behind the hugely popular Minecraft, for $2.5 billion.

Naturally, the subject came up on Conan, who checked in with the inventor of the game to see how he's celebrating:

The actual founders are leaving the company, but Mojang says most of the team will probably stay on board, at least for the time being. It's worth noting that Microsoft recently announced a massive round of layoffs including many people it brought over from the acquisition of Nokia assets.
