Notch challenges Bethesda to Quake 3

Wants to settle lawsuit this way.

Minecraft creator Markus "Notch" Persson wants to settle the Bethesda "Scrolls" lawsuit in a game of Quake 3.

If his team of three beat Bethesda's team of three, he asks that Bethesda drop the lawsuit.

If Bethesda wins, Persson will agree to change Scrolls' name to something else.

"I am serious, by the way," wrote Markus Persson on his blog.

Scrolls is the next game by Minecraft studio Mojang. Persson recently revealed he'd been hit with a cease and desist letter by Bethesda's lawyers. Scrolls apparently infringes upon "The Elder Scrolls" copyright.
