Michael "Searge" Stoyke is a game developer working at Mojang Studios. He is currently working on Minecraft. His employment at Mojang was announced on November 2, 2013 at the "Future of Minecraft" panel at MINECON 2013. His first day at the Mojang office was January 2, 2014. He is most well known for founding the Mod Coder Pack. He is the founding member of ModJam and was known for his 'secret feature' game where he adds secret features, mainly command block ones, to the game in secret and waits for users to find them and report them on Twitter. On February 13, 2015, Searge announced on Twitter that the 'secret feature' game would stop when snapshots are released for Java Edition 1.9, claiming that it was getting 'a bit old'.
- During the snapshots for Java Edition 1.9 there used to be a written book in the End ships. It read "we will have something here soon", possibly referring to the Elytra, and was signed by Searge.
