Johan Bernhardsson is a former game developer at Mojang Studios, who worked extensively on Minecraft: Pocket Edition, and over a year by himself. Johan resigned from Mojang on September 11, 2015. In his last few weeks at Mojang, he worked on the OS X Launcher for Minecraft.

Being interested in IT, Johan taught himself to program and has ever since become enthusiastic about it.[5]

Previously, Bernhardsson worked as a Half-Life 2 modder, a minigame developer and a software engineer. Before becoming involved with Mojang, he worked as a programmer for Stunlock Studios on the action real-time strategy game Bloodline Champions, which became a minor electronic sports title.

On September 3, 2015, Jeb posted on Instagram that Johan was leaving Mojang.[6]

A week later, on September 11, 2015, Johan officially tweeted[7] that he had finished his last day at Mojang.

On January 28, 2016, Johan announced that he started a new game studio, Midnight Hub, and a new horror game called Lake Ridden.[8][9]
